Are you guys keeping the red wheels or changing them out? I've got a set of gold Anniversario wheels and black R wheels. Thinking of going with the gold first.
I have one on order that I'm 99.3% going to pass on but if I was to get it these are forsure the rims I'd go with.

How about silver or aluminum alloy natural finish on the wheels?

$45K out the door for a motorcycle really limits the addressable market. Makes me think hard about what else i can add to the stable for that amount of $$.

Been eyeing a low mileage 998R and 996R...
KMY, If you're not going to buy an SL just buy the FE, and the 998R. I really like those. I wish I had one. The 998R is one bike I wouldn't mind owning someday.

I like where your head's at!! I'm a bit torn between the 996R and 998R. I think the 996R looks a bit better with the vents in the tail and black mirrors, but the 998R is the last of its kind. Either would be a good addition. I'm really enjoying my 916SPS. It's got Ferracci bits and pulls like a freight train. Riding position is super aggressive with low bars, but the bike is really narrow and handles well. Sounds the part too!

Then just need a 999R or 1098R to complete the lineup

It never ends...

Definitely go with the gold wheels. That is going to look absolutely killer. Excited to hear all about it.

The wheels are actually part of the reason I went against getting this bike. As silly as that sounds, but in my mind I can't part with Ģ35k to get a brand new machine and then spend another Ģ3k on wheels........ brain does not compute!

you can pay 35k on bike and you canīt pay 200 in paint the wheels? Honestly that sounds ridiculous.:Rodar los ojos:
