Pirelli reaffirms and consolidates its commitment to motorsport with confirmation to Official Tyre Supplier for all classes of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship up to 2023. In agreement with Dorna WSBK Organization, the promoter and organiser of the production-derived series, and with the FIM, the International Motorcycling Federation, the Italian tyre company has extended the current supply agreement for three further seasons and will boast a unique twenty-year collaboration in motorsport.

Pirelli, in agreement with Dorna WSBK Organization and FIM, also announces that from 2020 all the all WorldSBK Championship classes will use exclusively DIABLO™ Superbike slick tyres. This means that, starting from next season, the WorldSSP and WorldSSP300 classes and the newborn Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup will also have the maximum technology and performance offered by the top product in the Pirelli range, that will replace the DIABLO™ Supercorsa SC treaded tyres used in those classes.

Pirelli confirmed Official Supplier for all classes of the Superbike World Championship until 2023

Started in 2004 and initially designed to contain the overall costs of running the Championship, the technical partnership established by Pirelli with the Federation, promoter, teams and racers represented the first example of single tyre formula in the history of top motor racing competitions. Now, after almost twenty years, it has proven to be a winning choice then followed by other two and four wheel championships, because it has offered all riders and teams the same opportunities to compete for victory, through a fair and identical tyre supply for all.

In the WorldSBK class the rear tyres will all be in the 200/65 rear and 125/70 front sizes. In the WorldSSP category, in addition to the transition from treaded to slicks, the riders will be able to count on the new 190/60 rear size. Finally, welcoming the numerous requests from customers, riders and promoters of championships all over the world - such as the CIV (Italian Speed Championship) in which the riders have already had the opportunity to test it, Pirelli has decided that the SCX rear solution, introduced this year only in the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, will become part of the DIABLO™ Superbike range and will therefore be available to all championships, professional riders and amateurs who will want to use it.
