Good test of BST vs OEM CBR600RR wheels. Probably the biggest improvement you can make to the bike. Especially in braking.

^nice video. Too bad those wheels costs more then half my bike. Are those even allowed to be used on races? It's a hard sell when RR's cost $12k and those are $3-4k. I mean if its a Benz or Porsche you can justify the $ but not on our bikes.

Damn those are ugly! I'm not in the market for CF rims so I don't have to pick form over function thankfully!

Those have got to be the ugliest wheels I've ever seen in my life. I don't like the 3-spoke stockers, but I have to say that if somebody gave me those for nothing, I would just try to turn around and sell them. They are absolutely horrendous. I actually saw the real thing at the Milan bike show a few weeks ago and they look just as bad in person. As for the form over function argument, I'm not even near a point where I could take advantage of a big loss of weight there. Never, never and never for something that ugly.

I would rock them.....

from years of ugly,painful suffering (bicycle racing),

I know what a big difference lighter wheels make.

I also learned that lighter was not always better...painfully
