Perillia Diablo Rosso on 600rr

I have a 03 600rr and I was about to get a PirellaDiablo Rosso (the new design) tire fo the reat, but I read this on

Normally our CBR600RR delivers a relatively plush ride on the street for a 600cc sportbike. But with the Rosso underneath us, that smooth ride was compromised. The CBR's tires normally work in unison with the suspension to help soak up some of the irregularities and bumps in the pavement, but the Rosso tires have a stiffness to them that translated every bump and pavement ripple directly through the bike.

Does anyone know about this? I am getting a very good deal on the brand new tire and I don't wanna lose the chance. If anyone put it on their 600rr and didn't notice this problem please let me know.

If it is a stiffer tire the road will be felt more through the bike since the tire wont absorb the jounces.

You could soften the suspension but that will sacrifice ride quality if you are an aggressive rider. If you are moderate to soft on the bike, dont worry about it too much...
