Scheduled for Mid May delivery in North America. I assume you guys in Europe will be a week or two ahead of that.

I've been told mines about a week away the dealer was invoiced for the bike couple of weeks ago- that normally (?!?) means three weeks to delivery to dealer from their experience, latest story is some hold up on the head light units as they are different to the S and Tri being non LED.

We will see!!

its gonna be funny because all of the hype built around the S....what if they do a review on the base and it turns up to really be lighter with faster times around the track, top speed etc....they is gonna be alot of S owners upset!

Don't worry about that, the Base has been suitably knobbled with a set of tragically heavy wheels.

I think they're made by Brembo, with the entire package being something like >3kg heavier than the Marchesini's.

Remember, thats unsprung weight, so will really slow handling in every direction.

Will see if I can find the exact numbers again.

2.1Kg to be exact, at least as far as published specs:

So the cast base wheels will be 4.6lb heavier in old money (8.2Kg/18lbs the pair vs 6.1Kg/13.4lbs), so definitely noticeable at speed vs the forged Marchesinis. Biggest advantage of the S over the base in my book, at least until we see some feedback on the Marzocchi/Sachs suspension units.
