Question Marchesini Magnesium wheels or BST Carbon wheels?

3000$ Question

I would like to enhance the agility of my Ducati 1199. Marchesini Magnesium wheels or BST Carbon wheels? (This is not for a track use)

And can someone help me find the right Marchesini model for a1199? (M9R? M10R? M10RS? Etc ...)

Any feedback or help would be appreciated!

Thanks alot

Never had Mag wheels but loved my carbon fiber rotobox wheels on my s1000rr. Never had an issue with them until my wreck when the front cracked.

compare the OZ Gass ali wheels which are close to the weight of the mag wheels on my 1199 and the BST wheels on the SL, Carbon wheels are better.

I have BST's on my S1000rr track bike and I love them. They were the best mod I have done to that bike. It feels more agile (though not by much) than my 1299S. Make sure you pony up for the ceramic bearings.

I heard the carbon wheels are only good for 5 years...any truth to that?

My concern with the CF wheels was that if you have an off...to truly know if the CF is stable, you need to image them (X-ray?).

But...I don't know this for certain-

My opinion BST wheels are outdated even the new rotobox are not good looking in person the only nice looking carbon wheel on market is the SL carbon wheels. I would go with Marchesini Magnesium

Can you buy the Carbon SL wheels either from Ducati or the Manufacturer?

I've been going through the same dilemma for my FE.

BST carbon don't do it for me, I think the 'fat' spoke looks a little dated.
The BST carbon SL wheels are v nice but I'm not going to spend circa 4.5k plus VAT on those.
Ali OZ are good value but I think the machining detail is to fussy.

So for me it's down to Marchesini M10RS kompe (Ali) or go the whole hog and get the Mag versions from the 1199 SL. My concern is longevity of the Mag for road use so I'm edging towards the Kompe version.
