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

Whoa buddy, no disrespect to you bolder, I would totally agree the front wheel core should be built lighter on the buell because its not transmitting braking forces. The real ? Is the inertia of the buell setup and unsprung weight any better than whats being done in F1 or motogp, I am guessing not.

PS - Does BTDT mean "been done to death"?
Yes, until new materials emerge

You do realise of course that as well as the lighter wheel the unsprung weight savings come from the fact that the larger single rotor is meant to make the need for a second rotor and caliper assembly redundant . ( single as opposed to dual disc setup) .... I believe thats the theory anyway ......

Non taken.

I thought you were wandering off into a hub vs circumferential - "which is best?" argument. I was "challenged" by the differing wheels when I first saw the bike, as it seems Smitty was. I was just explaining why they were different.

No worries eh?

An egotistical post.

My buddy does a lot of carbon work for this company. I am not a huge Ducati fan, but they do look nice.

Maybe this should go in the funny thread:
