I've been happy using the Diablo Rosso 200/50 tire, anyone else try them?

I do not, but am interested in the replies.  What kind of mileage do you get from them?  I'm currently running Pirelli Angel GT A specs, previous set were regular Angel GTs.

I did not write down the mileage when I installed them, did not ride much last year due to a hand injury, but these tires have been the best tires at NOT losing air I've ever owned, whatever that means.

They feel real good in corners, I'll be installing a new set before the Cog track day.

I ran those tires..very sticky. I got about 1,500 miles out the rear tire. (they were onsale  so I thought--what the heck- try them) 
I am not disappointed as that is what I would expect with a light weight - crotch rocket tire on a heavy C14 bike.
I dont think i would use them for track days as they  would get hot quick  and most likely be more  greasy than  sticky.( you could always keep more air in them so they dont heat up as much-but then you minimize that big contact patch)
  I would stick  with a GT tire (heavier carcass) IMHO.

I put a set on my ZX14, less than 3K miles later they were toast. Thats the last set I ever bought. Great handling but tire life was short.

The rear is rated for over 800lbs, W rating which is over 170mph.

I know I have over 2,000 miles on them and they  look pretty good still, I don't care about getting 5,000 miles

from a tire, I never go on trips with the bike that's why I have a conversion van  ;D

I run the Diablo Rosso III on my 2013 Ducati Monster. They are super grippy tires and handle amazingly. However I struggle to get 5K out of a set.
