Just picked up the new Pirelli 60 series from Mspeed.
Can't wait to try it out!!!!
In a DOT !!! Nice!
Why does it matter if it is a DOT?
These kind of "extreme" (for better edge grip and drive, but necessitating chassis setup modifications) tire profile has in the past been used only on Slick tires. Now Pirelli has brought that to the DoT street legal tires as well. The new 200/55 DoT for the "big" bikes is another example of that.
Btw. These are the exact same tires that were used for first time in WSS at Donington last weekend. We received our first shipment just this past friday.
Win on Sunday, sell on Monday!(or in my case, sell on Tuesday through Saturday)
and what are the setup changes? rear ride height?
What tire were they using at Phillip Island?
I think the question should really be, what tire pressure were the affected teams running?

New ride? You still going to race the Rocket 3 a few times?
Just checked out your web site - WOW! That is one hell of a press release! You and Rossi - Ducati dudes! Let the good times roll...
So are you going to race MWSBK with it, or brave it out in 600 Supersport?
The three teams that experienced flat tires(as well as a few other teams ) at Phillip Island were running the Supersoft compound against the express recommendation of Pirelli. Phillip Island with its extremely high cornering speed is very hard on tires ,tire wear there is extreme.
The three riders who got the flats literally rode right through the cords(suspension setup probably wasn't ideal either) , hence the gradual deflation, completely unlike the catastrophic sudden tire failures you get with Chunklops.
Btw, Austin, how's your bigbore 600 " Supersport " build coming along?
That's a reasonable explanation, certainly more down to earth than the tire-pressure/humidity story.
I ran out of money after I paid you for the suspension and exhaust. At the moment, I'm trying to pawn everything so I can buy Mr. Nadolny's 750.
118 hp isn't good enough already ???
:bow: :bow: :bow:
That spare 996 motor of yours will slot right in.
I actually laughed out loud at work here ...:flashy:
Taking a year off I see:flashy:
I'm not at work, but I have to agree Davie, I laughed my fu**ing ass off at that too!......We might have to make him "President" next year just to keep him honest!......
Good work on Sunday there, Buddie!......I had a big smile on my face in T4 watching you get that "big" spot on the box!......Hope you get a few more!.....
