Marchesini or Carrozzeria?

Price difference is about $600. Marchesinis are powdercoated, Carrozzerias are annodized.

Any suggestions?

Powdercoating can always be reapplied...

Consider these as an option:

We have some good news for you guys. Texas Track Days will be the official distributor for Durrani Wheels which are magnesium and only cost $1600… compare that to $2800 Marchesini wheels. It also comes as a complete assembly with all bearings, internal spacers, hubs, and unique cush drive, all you need to do is swap your existing tires, external axle spacers, and rotors to the new wheels, purchase a rear sprocket that fits the Durrani cush drive (sold separately)… and you're ready to roll.

Some of the Benefits:
Front Weight: 7.4 lbs.
Rear Weight: 10.6 lbs.
Retail Price: $1,598 per complete set
• Completely Magnesium hubs!
• Complete Cush-Drive and Integrated Sprocket Carrier!
• Includes all bearings, internal spacers, and sprocket bolts.
• Fully assembled and ready-to-mount!
• Accepts OEM fitment rotors, rotor bolts, and external spacers.
• Durrani 510 Series wheels have a Limited One Year warranty
• Requires rear sprocket that fits the 2001-2006 Suzuki GSXR-1000.
Advantages gained by lightweight wheels:
• Relative 10-15 horsepower gain
• 8-10 lbs weight savings
• Save 1.0-2.0 seconds per lap
• Faster acceleration
• Shorter stopping distance
• Less rider fatigue during track sessions
• Easier corner turn-in
• Faster transitions on the track
• Increased margin of safety, street and track
Note: We recommend a steering damper be installed due to higher steering sensitivity.

We have 5 sets that are ready to ship so first come first serve … be one of the first ones to use this great product. You can find more information about this product at WWW.DURRANIRACING.COM .

**** THESE ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR 600cc BIKES … SORRY LITER BIKE GUYS YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT 6 MORE MONTHS****

LIST OF APPLICATIONS CAN BE FOUND ON THE DURRANI WEBSITE.

CONTACT US AT 469-222-6866 OR EMAIL US AT INFO@TEXASTRACKDAYS.COM


As an added bomus, buy any set of Durrani Wheels, and receive 1 free track day from Texas Track Days, good anytime.

BST's


I guess if it has to be one of the two, I would think Marchesini would be better. A lot easier to find replacement wheels and parts and their support is probably a lot better. I never used either, but I just picked up a set of BST's and will let you know how well they perform.

PreK, the way I see it is this: we've heard of issues with CZ... there were issues bringing the Durrani in the market... but you've never heard of March issues. I would prefer to spend my money with the company(s) that do right the first time. Granted they're a bit more monies, peace of mind is not cheap sometimes.

From what I remember seeing, the March forged alums are a tad lighter than the CZ also.

Good luck. It's a spendy upgrade. I can't wait to get my Marchs, but I'm going for mags when I do.

Marchesini would be my choice.
The Carrozzerias have had random issues.
Has anyone even SEEN the Durranis yet?
I've been hearing all of the hype about them for a few years now, unfortunately I have yet to see one nor do I know anyone who actually owns a set.

BST are serious coin. IMO worth it, but DAYUM!!!

I can get you a contact to an individual that's owned multiple sets if you like, Cinco.

I've yet to see reviews on teh Braking wheels.

The EXTREMELY low price of the Durranis (compared to Marchesini magnesium) leads me to believe there is some (or alot of) cost cutting... the price is literally HALF of what the Marchesinis are.

That, and the fact that I want aluminum instead of the more fragile magnesium...

I have seen some dimensional issues with Carrozzeria, I have seen this personally. The Marchesinis have always been perfect.....always.
