Marvic race wheels

Anyone know how adaptable these are likely to be?

I know nothing about these, so out of curiousity I started looking them up and this is what I found so far:

OMFG, the price?! Lol.

Direct from the website, the design and part code are different.

GSXR 750 - MAR5312
Marvic Piuma Cast Magnesium Wheels - Suzuki GSXR600/750 (2006-2007) - Marvic Wheels - Motorcycle Wheels - MotorcycleToyStore - Motorcycle Accessories and Motorcycle Gear

Honda CBR 600rr - MARC312
Marvic Piuma Cast Magnesium Wheels - Honda CBR600RR (2005-2006) - Marvic Wheels - Motorcycle Wheels - MotorcycleToyStore - Motorcycle Accessories and Motorcycle Gear

So it looks to me just from comparing part numbers and eyeballing the bolt patterns that they would not bolt up. It also doesn't look like the hubs are changeable on these specific model rims. It looks like there is a possibility that a different model rim might have interchangable hubs, or at least one of them - Marvic Assen Forged Magnesium Wheels - Honda CBR600RR (2007-2008) - Marvic Wheels - Motorcycle Wheels - MotorcycleToyStore - Motorcycle Accessories and Motorcycle Gear

Again, I know nothing about these so I could be completely wrong. The next thing you could do is compare a GSXR hub bolt pattern to a generic 600rr hub bolt pattern and see if they match up or even come close. If they match up or come real close, you might be able to bolt up Honda rotors (doubt it), or go as far as to bolting up GSXR rotors, provided that you change out the calipers/MS to match. If you go that route, then clearly the biggest issue would be axle diameter and whether machining could address that or not.

Interesting for sure. I'm sure I missed something just thinking off the top of my head. I hope someone else more knowledgeable chimes in. Paging Rob!

^^^ +1 the hardest thing is the bolt patterns on the hub/sprocket/rotors. Spacing between forks and swingarm can be fixed with spacers, but if you have to use a whole new sprocket carrier or rotors, you then have to change calipers.

And on the front, that could mean different calipers, then forks, then triples, just to get the wheel to fit, not to mention you are designing the handling of the bike around the looks of a wheel, rather than by handling characteristics first.

Thanks guys. I knew nothing either, certainly not the RRP!!

I'll see if I can get to inspect them, even though it seems unlikely that they will be mix'n'match, given that they have a variety of part numbers...

Thanks for your time and input.
