Pirelli’s Diablo Rosso Brutale Is A Smoldering Italian Superbike

It’s the tire company’s sexiest creation since the Pirelli Calendar.


Two iconic Italian brands, Pirelli and MV Agusta, have joined forces on a new custom superbike celebrating their decades-long partnership and the famed tire company’s new Diablo Rosso III racing tire.

Based on the new MV Agusta Brutale 800 “naked” superbike, which boasts a its 798cc inline triple engine, the Diablo Rosso Brutale is finished in matte black with luminous red highlights while goth the Pirelli logo and the red “D” of Diablo appear next to the vintage-style MV Agusta logo on the top of the tank. Basically, it’s  the hottest thing Pirelli has produced since their iconic annual calendar.

Other decorative elements hinting and speed and power can be found on the front bumper, below the seats and the rear, all of which are synchronized with red markings on the tires and the rim stripes.

It all serves to give the bespoke 800 Brutale an even more aggressive look, with its three-pipe exhaust, futuristic light alloy frame and trapezoidal tank that simply screams “I eat Ducatis for breakfast.”

They don’t call it “Butale” for nothing….
