    Gold wheels?

    With fluffy dice and a leopard skin seat?

    Personal taste obviously but I can't think of a single instance on any bike where any colour looks any better than black wheels.
    I prefer the black wheels on the 2017 Dragster RC rather than the red wheels on mine, as soon as I get chance I'll be replacing them with carbon ones.

    Agreed. Also a rare option for this bike so Id like to leave them as they are tbh.

    I like the gold wheels, but not enough to change them. I like the stealth look with this one.

    This would have looked rubbish with black wheels, I love white wheels

    Nope, black wheels would have looked loads better, in that you wouldn't really have noticed them, the focal point should be the paint job on the fairing/tank.

    I fucking spat my coffee out!

    In other news I got the R1 out tonight as the roads were dry and wanted a shake down run before I use it tomorrow for work ... absolutely brilliant machine blatting up through the gears with the quick shifter and the exhaust popping and banging like mad ... it got a good thrashing ... epic.

    I forgot how quick steering it is ... took a while to adjust properly as its so light on its feet!

    The brakes I reckon need a final bleed ... for that trigger feel I like, but I will let them settle in on the ride tomorrow before I do that ...

    I may also remove the carbon heat shields and the plastic behind the rear sets when the Lightechs turn up for a cleaner look.

    Bring on Summer!

    I can think of few things worse looking than carbon wheels...they look shit. And I say that as a man who makes carbon fibre for a living

    How about black painted carbon wheels as a compromise?

    I actually agree with you, IMHO naked carbon fibre looks shit on anything, I saw an MV Agusta done in full carbon and it looked gash. I don't like carbon mudguards either.
    Cars are the same, it's not a pretty look.

    But with BST wheels you have to be within a few feet to see that it's carbon fibre, otherwise from across the street they just look like black wheels.
    The reason I thought of going for carbon fibre is that I can get them for the same price as a set of new standard black RC wheels from MV Agusta - and they're lighter.
    But yeah, if they came in black paint then I'd get the painted ones, as it is I'll get the matt ones, they're the least carbon fibre looking, IYSWIM.
