You'd think for 19k they could have afforded a matching set of wheels

I had the same complaint. When I voiced it here some pages ago I was set straight. Allow me to do you the same favour.

Because the front is a rim brake rotor, the braking forces do not get transmitted through the hub, therefore it'd be stupid to NOT lighten the front wheel to buggery given the advantages of lessening unsprung, rotating mass. The rear has a conventional rotor and therefore cannot take advantage of lightening the wheel. It'd be stupid to anyway since the power is delivered via the hub too.

I think they baffled u with bullsh***. Looking at all the hardware to move and restrain the calipers (all unsprung), the larger diameter rotors may weigh just as much as a conventional rotor (all unsprung). The good higher rotor velocities to shed a huge amount of heat and superior feel. The bad some of that huge amount of heat is transferred to the wheel and tire assembly (and air within the tire changing press) at an inconsistent rate, higher inertial mass to accelerate and more aerodynamic drag, part of the huge amount of heat still goes into the pads and calipers. All this shi** has BTDT for decades. Gotta admit they look cool and techy on the buell.

I think you have stepped in a bit of bullschit yourself Phart.

It is not that the rotors that are lighter, or that the set up is superior to a conventional set up. It is that the force is not required to go through the hub of the wheel, therefore the wheel may be built more lightly. The final weight of a wheel from a conventional set up and a wheel from a rim set up might be very similar for all I know.

The point is that the front and rear wheels are built to different loading characteristics and therefore, as Smitty stated, do not visually match.

PS - Does BTDT mean "been done to death"?
