I've ridden a couple of bikes with them on; a 1098 and a GSXR1000. IMO there's better tires available.
What kind of riding do you do?

Mostly commuting and riding around town. I go out to the forest every so often so I do hit corners pretty hard when I can find them. I have Diablo corsas's on right now, and was probably gonna go with the Corsa III. I was just curious about the rosso's

The III's sound like the way to go for your riding... hard in the middle and gooey on the edges!

I really liked the BT002 Race/Street but they wore too quickly for a street tire.

Corsa IIIs ftw IMHO, thus far, it's the best $$ I've spent on my bike since I got her in Oct.

The SCIII may have a harder compound center, but is still softer in the center than a regular Diablo.

If you do a bunch of commuting with an occasional weekend run, I've had good results with any of the 3 following combos; Bridgestone BT014 front and BT021 dual compound rear, Metzler M3 front and Z6 rear, and lastly the Michelin Pilot Power front and Pilot ROAD 2CT rear (What I'm running).

I have a lot of customers and friends who ride very aggressively on these tires with no issues.
Although they're probably not my first choice for a track day, they work well for everyday riding and aggressive back country riding.
