I am stupid, bought this most expensive Honda sport bike came with cheap cast wheel. I know SP2 came with Marchesini wheels but not triple Rs. Did you all know that?

Anyone consider carbon wheels? I think they even come with ceramic bearings already.


I bought OZ wheels, they are great, highly recommended.
Which model and web link to buy from?

Try CoreMoto wheels cheaper and lighter.
Thanks, they claim to have the lightest forged wheels, do you think it's true? I also have a VFR750F 3rd gen.

Besides cast wheels, does the new bike have rubber brake lines too?

Ask a biker if he/she needs upgraded parts...answer is always YES. I agree with carbon being some what costly. Any pictures of the wheels?

Then you should have not purchased it. I have purchased many motorcycles and rode new Ducatis, KTMs and Aprilias. This bike handles better than those bikes with forged wheels. Come on spongy brakes give me a break. I bleed my brakes every year and bleed them before every track day. I zip tie the clutch and brake lever to remove air on my other motorcycles also. You purchased a motorcycle with a blueprinted and balanced engine. Brake lines and wheels are cheap in comparison.

me too, cast wheels and nice spongey brake lines. But I bought a rock-hard dildo for those lonely Saturday nights.

Oh yeah, well I have shit for brains, I presently own 2021 ZX-10RR, 2017 CBR SP2, 2018 GSXR AND 2021 CBR-RR. So yeah cheap spongy brake lines and cast wheels, for great profit margin, they cheaped out, and for this great bike they havent done shit in wsbk and motoamerica.

Dude relax who cares what they have done in motoamerica and sbk. Honda is all about motogp. They have not much cared about motoamerica previously know as ama since pulling out winning with the rc51 also true for sbk okay they did win once with a cbr1000rr. Non factory team since then till today. Which in my opinion will do much better this year. Honda does what honda wants ie
Rc45 28k 120hp in 94 Nr750 80k the RRR for the money is worth it to be one of the few to own one. A person who resort to name calling says alot about their IQ. You are correct they cheaped out but it seams in todays society we are more critical of small flaws but say nothing about the large flaws plaguing our society.

That escalated quickly. @peterj59 I totally get being frustrated with the components on the CBR especially when the V4S Ducati has forged wheels and stainless lines. From my personal experience on track with the new CBR, the brakes actually work very well. If you want stainless lines that can be sorted and I ordered OZ wheels for mine for a little over 2k.

It’s a race homologated bike. I think they know most buyers are gonna rip out the abs anyway. So why put steel abs lines? All 3 of my Aprilia’s had steel lines and I ended up throwing them in the garage after I removed the abs and ram them direct. I think it’s smart on Honda to put more money into the motor than brake lines that will end up ripped out of bike. Also wheels, I think the thought is some people race carbon, some forged and some have 2-3 full sets in their kit. So I’ll buy forged for dry race and use the stock for rains or track days. That’s just my thought, wasn’t mad about the rubber lines or wheels.

@roadracerx Did the wheels come with standard steel bearings and if so, did you happen to swap them out for ceramics? My BST wheels on my SC77 had the option to pick which bearings when purchasing, but everywhere I look for OZ, they make no mention of specific bearing options, just that they come pre-installed. Leaning toward the OZ GASS wheels for my SC82, so was curious.
