Optional magnesium wheels for the Speciale are £3.5K (US$4.6K) in the UK. Yes you did read that correctly!

I said bye to Ducati for a while and the Panigale V4 came and made me forget about every other bike i have in mind, this Ducati V4 is the bike i have been waiting for

Really beautiful lines
Absolutely epic sound
Killer LED front and rear
Sexy dash
Nuclear power
Splendid handling
And of course it is a red ducati
Thanks from MotoX183

Check with JarelJ. I heard they were similar to the 1199SL wheels. I am sure you could source a set cheaper than through Ducati, if that were the case. £3.5K is a lot given you could buy some nice Oz Cattiva or GASS wheels for much less in your choice of colours or some Marchesinis from either Octo Racing in Italy or Bike Torque Racing in the UK, both of whom stock almost any wheel you can think of and there are always deals to be had.

Hey Jarelj do the V4 DP rearsets allow you to switch between standard and GP shift without switching to a reverse quick shifter unit or having to re-orient the shift arm like on the DP units for the 1x99s?

They are not in the catalog yet, so I'm not sure which ones they will be. I know the Speciale was possibly going to come with Magnesium wheels in some of the early plans, but that got scrapped somewhere along the way. So maybe there was a new design from Marchesini for those, or they were going to be the same wheels as the SL. Not sure at this point.

Unclear, I had the same question and am still waiting on the answer, I'll post up when I know. I do know the new rearsets are made by Rizoma.
