Tester Matt Wildee Miles cov­ered 2000 What’s good? These are some of the high­est-qual­ity forged alu­minum wheels money can buy. De­vel­oped for rac­ing (they’ve won in BSB and at the TT this year), they are also ho­molo­gated for road use. At 4.40kg front and 5.56kg rear, they are 28% and 21% lighter than my 2000 R1’s stock wheels. The re­sult­ing re­duc­tion of ro­ta­tional in­er­tia makes the R1 far more nim­ble than be­fore, al­low­ing it to change direction faster and giv­ing it lovely, light steer­ing. Sta­bil­ity has been per­fect, too. Ac­cord­ing to my dat­a­log­ger, this re­sults in bet­ter ac­cel­er­a­tion and brak­ing, and on track re­duced my sec­tor time though Brunt­ingth­orpe’s chi­cane by 11%. What’s not? Hon­estly, they’re hard to fault. Fin­ish is strong with no chips or flak­ing and they come with beau­ti­ful­ly­made cap­tive spac­ers and an­odized valves with fine-pitch caps. They aren’t a bud­get up­grade but they make your bike feel brand new. If you’re look­ing to up­grade to a new bike but strug­gling to spend £15k, a pair of these would give your cur­rent 1000cc sports­bike a new lease of life.
