I was wondering if the older style forged wheels would fit on a 2014 GRiSO 1200se that has the spoke wheels? any input would be great thanks.

because the forged ones look better and they are 10,000 times easier to clean. lol

As nice as they look, spokes and tubeless tires are not a good combo. Some of them leak when new. Eventually they will all start to leak. When mine start, I'll look to swap as well.

Interesting situation, what does each wheel (complete with tyre and discs) weigh.
I know, STFU about ya carbon!

I would imagine the spoke wheels weigh less, but I would sacrifice some weight for the forged wheels. I almost talked myself out of buying my new 2014 GRiSO (totaled my 2007 GRiSO) just because of the spoke wheels. I'm really not a fan of spokes but I surely did love my other GRiSO and had to go right back to another one despite the darn spokes, and the extra cc's were an added bonus.

I totally agree! I'm sticking with my 2007 1100 for the foreseeable future and I LOVE the forged wheels. I think they look better and they're SO EASY to keep clean. AND, they're appropriate for the tubeless tires. If and when I do get an 8V, I will definitely want to put the forged wheels on it.

Standard Guzzi spoke wheels (Cali/Bellagio etc) weigh a ton. Admittedly the Alpina tubeless spoke wheel system is lighter, but most of that saving is due to the tube that standard Cali wheels require.

If the 3 spoke wheels that Guzzi use are stamped "Brembo", then they are cast wheels and heavy.
If they are stamped "Marchesini" then it is possible they are forged aluminium and a little lighter.
Forged magnesium would be much better.

Having the experience of using lighter wheels, any weight you can save in reciprocating weight is absolutely and diabolically beneficial. Once you taste black, you'll never go back, as it were.
Come ride Bella and you'll understand. Even lighter discs will be very noticeable, the increase in your riding pleasure will justify any expense incurred.

I couldn't make the last cabal, but I am very keen for any sporting Guzzisti to taste and see the difference that can be made to your GRiSO. I'm not just blowing smoke up my own arse.

The other thing with the spoked wheels is you can't fit a right angle valve on the rear wheel.

spoked rear is 6.8 kg and has a angled valve. brembo or marchesini are the same, brembo owns the company, and in this case nothing different. Here in europe lot of people want the spoked ones. My spoked stelvio wheel is just moved to a GRiSO.

I arrived 4 years too late to this site.  Just purchased a set of 2015 GRiSO Spoke wheels and tires.  Looking to sell my forged brembo wheels with semi decent tires.  Let me know if you are interested.  Asking price is $600 for both.
