OZ Racing Cattiva Forged Magnesium 6 Spoke Wheel Set MV Agusta F3 675/800/Brutale 675/800/Rivale 800
This 6-spoke design with double-section profile was drawn straight from OZ Racing experience. The special care that went into choosing this unique Magnesium alloy and the surface- and heat-treatment ensures a perfect combination of stiffness where required and the desired rim flex as preferred by both the world’s top riders and those enthusiasts who want the most from their bike. Wheels is interchangeable with the stock version.

Why use lightweight wheels?
- Carbon and titanium parts will lower the overall weight of your motorcycle and this is great for increasing total power to weight ratio. However, considering the tires, wheels and brake rotors have rotational mass, reducing this weight is directly felt by the rider and provides a tangible performance increase.
Moment of Inertia
- Construction of wheel- where is the weight? Cast OEM wheels are not only heavier, but the weight is not distributed the same as a carbon, magnesium, or forged aluminum wheels.
- The farther away weight is placed from its axis in a gyro (wheel), the more rotational inertia there will be. This is at an exponential level. If a given weight is moved farther away from the from center axis toward the edges of the wheel, the moment of inertia increases.
- The more weight at the outer edges of a wheel, the harder it will be to turn, stop or accelerate.
- Aftermarket, high performance wheels are designed to have a minimal amount if this moment of inertia compared to the OEM cast aluminum wheels.
- A forged aluminum wheel for an example, is not only lighter in total weight compared to cast OEM wheels, but the weight is concentrated closer to the center of the wheel and axles- thus reducing the moment of inertia.
- In simpler terms- lighter engineered wheels: Saves power. This equals = quicker acceleration, higher top speed and faster lap times
- Rider fatigue is also reduced- lighter wheels stop quicker and require less effort for turning into and exiting corners.
- Overall easier feel on the front end with proper suspension setup.
***Retuning suspension is recommended when changing to lightweight wheels from OEM
