The advantages of Marchesini wheels
50% of Superbike riders use the forged magnesium wheels supplied by Marchesini - a Brembo Group company since 2000: there's a 5-spoke Y version and 7-spoke lightweight version for the front, with 7-spoke lightweight for the rear. They're all created by means of 3D closed-mold multiforging and thermal treatment.
The main characteristics are maximum rigidity and minimum inertia. The weight saving ensured by Marchesini wheels (which, together with the tires, are the most significant unsprung rotating weight) boosts the acceleration of the bike and its handling during changes of direction, and enhances the brake response.
