... of course, you can use calculus to figure it out if the OEMs are made of steel... but maybe just email Ducati and find out.

I've got quite a few stock wheels in my collection, if it's important to you, I'll weigh a few & give you the highs & lows. Let me know. As for deciding if lighter wheels are worth it, they are. It will absolutly transform your bike, buy the lightest wheels you can afford. If I had the money, the BSTs would be at the top of my list.

PS: The current issue of Sportrider has an excellent article on aftermarket wheels.

I couldn't understand why the survey didn't list BST wheels.....

then I figured out that BST stands for Blackstone Technology.
They're there.

WOW! The BST are amazingly light but too expensive.

Norm,

If you have the time and are curious yourself, I think everyone here would like to see actual weights of our wheels posted for reference.

Thanks!
