I Ride: 1199 PANIGALE
Panigale and "S/Tri" Versions; Front & Rear Wheel Weights

Been looking around on a few forums and google, but I can't seem to find anyone posting the weights of these wheels. Been comparing OZ, BST, and OEM version(s) here and there. Alum & Mag ect ect....

* Just looking for the front & rear wheel weights for BOTH models.

Thanks guys

I Ride: x99R Panigale Track
I just weighed my stock Panigale wheels: 12 lbs. even for the rear, 9.05 lbs. for the front. The Marchesini Forged Magnesium wheels are 6.95 lbs. for the rear, 6.35 lbs. for the front. Those are all weights with bearings, no rotors or outside spacers. I'm sure Ducati's "spec" weights for the wheels are without bearings, that's normally how all of the manufacturers report them. So the bike lost just shy of 8 lbs. of rotating mass with the forged mags, that should be noticeable!

Hey jarel. Guess you can disregard my previous question on your wheels. Were those off the base model? When I changed mine out and weighed them at shop they were a lot lighter than yours! I only lost total of 4 lbs by going to C.F. BSTs man.
Love the gold look!

They're very durable, forged wheels (either Mag or Al) are the best, even if they get bent they can often be straightened.

Yes, mine are from a base model, yours off your Tri would be much lighter since they're the forged aluminum Marchesinis. Still 4 lbs. of rotating mass is quite a bit, and the weight of the BST's is almost all in the center, so they feel even lighter than they are. I went with Forged Mag for durability since it's a track-only bike, carbon would make me nervous with as many tire changes as I do in a year.
