Question 2012 CBR1000RR wheels?

So, the New 2012 CBR1000RR is sporting some new 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels and was thinking that it would be nice if they just bolted rite on.

I'd like it if those front rotors bolted on. The RC rotor carriers look awful.

Those wheels look like Kawasaki wheels. Honda should stick with the 5 spoke wheels like the SP2 had. They are, in my opinion by far the best looking wheels on any recent sportbike out of Japan. Simple and classic.

Five (or six) spoked wheels are the most beautiful ever. Like all the RCs (RC30,RC45) and all the other track bikes like the NSR250 they look amazing for a so simple design wheel.
Even though these 12 spoked wheels are not that ugly, I think that they don't reflect RC51's personality. But that is totally my taste.....maybe with the proper complete modifications they can look quite good on an RC.

Those wheels are sexy as hell.....the whole bike has "Come fuck me" written all over it...

Depending on the wheel and axle dimensions, you may need to change the bearings and axle spacers, plus rotors to match the wheel dimensions to the RC51 forks/calipers.
And that's just a generality.

The 1000rr rear will bolt right up.

the front will take new bearings and the rotor bolt up point is 4mm(2mm perside) narrower than the RC and this causes problems.
