Woo hoo. Those look very much like Aprilia Oz forged wheels. AP1 in the states have got a set on special offer. Reduced from US$ 2,745 by about US$ 400. Bargain of the century for lust worthy pieces of kit.

Think they are the cast version with the same spoke pattern as the OZ wheels. I made same mistake with the 1st wheel I got for mine as I thought only the forged wheels had that shape and the advertiser didn't know what he was selling.

So I now know that On the forged wheel all the coring of the spoke section, as it leaves the hub, are on one side of the wheel, on the cast version, the do each alternernate sides

Al, I thought you're right. Maybe you're wrong.

These are forged wheels. "Cut-outs" all one side.

At one stage I was interested in some (what I thought were) forged wheels. You can see they have "Forged" set into the rims but alternate "cutouts" either side.

The Pegasso uses the Yamaha 660cc single engine which is sweet. I've had both the XT660X and the XT660Z and loved them both.
