    Wheel Option

    They made a run of them for the hawk. They are floating around out there if you keep an eye open.

    They don't come crap though. Road a bike with a set once. Noticable handling difference.
    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

      But for someone who's going to do a VFR rear wheel swap anyway....... Does it seem like a viable option?

        $1,700 for the set with the extras. Maybe not a bad option if you are already wanting to make a switch.

          6 inch rear wheel? Not sure how that would work with a Hawk given the 5.5 inch is a tight fit.

            You could probably spend less money finding some of the later model Ducati Y spoke wheels that are common on the 848's and similar series bikes. The are not Carrozzeria's though, but they are also not 1800 a set if you shop in the bargain bin section.

            I do think Behindthetimes setup a really sweet Hawk (and maybe a 919 Hornet) on them though some years back. Here is a search with any posts he had mentioning them. https://tinyurl.com/j48p6h4n


            88 Blue Hawk GT - Under construction but rideable (guest approved)
            89 BlackHawk 2.0 - On the lift and being assembled
            90 Hawk GT (color as to yet be determined) - Still on the shelf in crates

                putting $1800 wheels on a $2000 bike ? what's wrong with that picture ?

                besides, those wheels look fragile to me

                  Same logic as putting a $1400 shock or $3000 motor, or $2000 bodywork or any other NICE parts on a hawk.

                  Because they make it better.

                  And they are pleanty strong. The up side to nice parts.

                        So we should just fork out the $2k or whatever for the bike and not think about upgrading it or improving it in any way. Gotcha.

                          The new CB1000R has snazzy wheels as well. Maybe another option?
