    New wheels from Durrani available in both US and UK.

    New magnesium motorcycle wheels from US firm Durrani says Al Dowds.

    We, at Superbike, have just got a set of these new wheels in from Speedycom, web address given below, and they look pretty reasonable for the cash. Made from magnesium, using a new process that combines forging with casting, the Durrani wheels are powder-coated, come with a sprocket carrier and disc hubs and are pretty light - under 7lbs front and under 11lbs rear. Available in six colours, and to suit most current sportsbikes.

    Why Replace Your Wheels?

    Performance

    Unlike making expensive engine and exhaust upgrades that increase horsepower and may adversely affect the reliability of your bike, reducing the weight will improve the handling and stopping ability, in addition to providing increased acceleration at any throttle position without the risk of reduced engine reliability. Taking ROTATING weight off your bike by installing lightweight Durrani magnesium wheels magnifies the performance gains by reducing the gyroscopic effect and moment of inertia created by spinning weight. Reducing wheel weight will also have a positive effect on fuel mileage, suspension action, and drivetrain life by reducing the workload on the engine, transmission, rear shock, and front forks.

    Looks

    Letís face it; one of the biggest reasons for changing any part of your bike is to tailor the look to suit your personality. Whether you like the race-replica look, or you just want to make a striking change to the look of your bike, the wheels are one of the most noticed parts of any bike. The design and attention to detail of the Durrani Racing Components 510 Series wheel are an easy way to get noticed at bike night, or at the racetrack. You can choose one of our six standard colors: Black, White, Red, Blue, Gunmetal, and Gold, or for a small premium you can choose to have your wheels powder coated in any one of the dozens of other color choices we have available.

    Safety

    Replacing your heavier original equipment wheels with Durrani magnesium wheels can also add a level of safety to your riding experience. The improved cornering responsiveness and reduced braking distance that lighter weight wheels offer can make the difference between having an accident, and avoiding one.


    UK readers go to www.speedycom.co.uk, and US readers go to www.durraniracing.com for detailed information. One thing to check, I think the rear sprockets, to fit these wheels, are Durrani specific items and would need to be ordered with the wheels.

    In the UK the wheels are priced, from Speedycom, at £1,195. The lucky people in the US, however, can get them for under $1400 tho' I guess that is before taxes.

    At these prices, despite the UK mark-up these wheels are a steal.

    $1,400 for a set of quality magnesium rims is not bad at all!

    Still, I must have those suspension bits first.... 8)
