I used to have Carrozeria on my cbr600rr .... they were really nice, and bolt on ... and great price too.
They usually build them to be bike specific, and bolt on applications. Not sure if there is a difference between the two gens regarding the wheel spacing...Yeah, but was anything changed from the 03-06 Z1000 to today's? I really liked the black Marchesini's on my Monster.
i really liked those wheels on your duc too! the carozzeria(sp?) are the cheapest, at around 1800 a set. ive been on the computer for hours everyday looking at different mods. my wife thinks ive fallen off the deep end. i need to see a shrink about my motorcycle obsession! :alcy:Yeah, but was anything changed from the 03-06 Z1000 to today's?

Have you not had any issues with Carrozeria wheels? I know of a dealer that dropped them due to spacing issues on customers bikes...Matsu at CZ says that's a no go. I can try Marvic and Marchesini if you are curious. PVM has gone oem only I think so they probably are off the table at this point.
They are BEAUTIFUL!!! :mouthwateApparently, Marvic makes a set of Magnesium "Penta" wheels for our bikes. They're a small fortune though (Europe list price of 2200 Euro for the pair), usually sold around 1900 Euro / pair.
Magnesium wheels are traditionally 15-30% lighter than stock, which should make for better turn-in / braking / accelerating / bump-handling. BTW, what are the lightest tires for our bikes? For my car I try to get Michelin PSIIs partly because they weigh 3 lbs less than any other tire.
There is basically no weight savings on the zx10 from the 03 zHas anyone thought about putting ZX-10 wheels on?
I've got to imagine they're lighter, but by how much. I like the design of them better than the 07 wheels, but would you actually gain anything?
Good to know. I don't think the wheel changed much between the 03-06 to the 07-08, so using the ZX-10 wheels would just be for looks.There is basically no weight savings on the zx10 from the 03 z
