GenV Marchesini wheel weights
I finally had the chance to weigh the OEM ZX10RR Marchesini wheels.
The rear, with rotor, but w/o cush drive weighed 16.2 lbs
The front, also with rotors weighed 16.2 lbs
In contrast, the OEM BMW HP forged rear wheel weighed only 11.6
Wheel weight is why the BMW feels so much more flickable and faster. 5 lbs just on the rear wheel.
I was not able to weigh the BMW front at the time.
The forged Marchesinis are nice, but not even in the OEM BMW class. And now, the BMW will go even lighter with carbon fiber. Its time for Marchesini to up their game.
Id like to see what the Magnesium marchesinis weigh.
