They are a pretty decent wheel weight wise, though the 1098 R wheels were lighter.

FWIW, I have a set of the Oz Gass and while they are a bit lighter on the scales, its not
really noticeable on the track. I like their look, but the bang for buck was minimal over
the OEM S/R wheels.
I've been keeping an eye out for a pair but nothing is coming up in the Australian market.

The S wheels are meant to be quite a good wheel from what i've heard.

Thats interesting to hear! I thought i'd be saving quite a bit on unsprung weight from the base wheels and in return, feel quite a difference.

A good little a video from the boys at 44teeth. They netted a 1.2 second per lap advantage from cast to lightweight carbon wheels on an r1.

newer design with better weight distribution, and slight lighter, only a bit pricier than Piega, but i think it's worth it.
I know this sounds stupid, but i just don't love the look of the machined lip on the RS-A Gass rim. LOVE the piega (R) and cattiva.

Is the Piega R a worthy candidate? what makes them not road worthy?

That all depends on where you are on the scale of lap times I guess the quicker you go the harder it is to find a half a second or a tenth of a second .If I can improve my times buy 1.2 seconds by just fitting lighter wheels let me have them .
Placebo effect are my thoughts . Don't get me wrong I like lighter wheels but the base wheels are not exactly anchors either .
Coaching and track times will improve your times more so over buying lighter wheels if that's your goal but that is just sensible talk if you want light wheels buy the ones you like the look of .

I find that the weight reduction of the front wheel is noticeable but not so much the rear. I think the OEM S wheels are a good compromise for weight cost etc. if everything is optimized reducing the weight further would improve performance, but most of us don’t have our bikes set up that well for many reasons. Ultimately it’s gonna book down to what you want. If it is just for cosmetics pick a style you like.

I don't know what the difference is between Piega vs Piega R.

There are forged AL wheel, i doubt you'll notice difference between them. Pick the one you like. They will all give you a boost from Base Die Cast wheels.

The swapped my base rims for a set off an 1199R, the wheels like lighter, the spacer is aluminum, not steel, even the rotor bolts are lighter.

I'm looking at the OZ racing Cattiva (mag) or the Piega (aluminium) forged wheels. Love the look of them plus hopefully a noticeable performance gain at the track.

The bike is used both on the road for some weekend runs and at the track in fast group. Doing as many track days as i can at the moment, totally hooked.

Wanting to know if its worth spending the extra money on the magnesium and if there is any durability issues.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I also have the base 1299. Personally if I were spending the money which I will soon. I would buy a better rear suspension and a better front suspension (either a drop in suspension in the front or a full ohlins front end). Or upgrade my master cylinder and clutch cylinder along with better brakes and rrotors. At least thats my opinion

As was stated earlier light wheels are one of the best handling/performance upgrades available. The standard suspension is not too bad if setup for your weight and conditions so after sorting that bung on some cool wheels and good to go.
