So I searched and I think I found the OEM tire here:

DIABLO ROSSO CORSA , Motorcycle Tyres - Car Tyres, Motorcycle Tyres, Truck Tyres, Motorsport tyres - PIRELLI INTERNATIONAL

Can anyone confirm if these are the exact same ones from the factory?

Also I read that the word "CORSA" that's in red on our tires is an optional sticker that manufacturers can apply. Any idea where we can order these to put in the empty rectangle on the new tires? Yeah I'm anal about stupid things lol :D
Here they are :

I tried the Q2s and Q3s on my 848. I really do think the Pirellis are better and worth the price (course I make good money so a set is nothing to me anyway). Don't get me wrong, the Dunlops I think are very good, my choice right after Pirelli. If I were on a budget the Q3 would be my next choice.

Plus allot of the high speed mountain roads I ride get dirt slides often and I know at some point the DTC is totally going to save my ass when I eventually do hit some sand/gravel in the road so I want to run the exact tires it's calibrated for.

Good point. I am a bit concerned that non-stock tires may affect things. The Pirellis are great tires anyway so am sticking to them unless I find a good reason to switch.

If you want a sticker version, Pirelli makes the Supercorsa SP in the 180/60 size as well. If you were going to do mostly track days or aggressive canyon riding, and not much "general" street riding that would be a great choice.
