Adventure spoked wheels price?

Has anyone picked up a set of the new spoked rims for their 2012+ Glee? I am interested in the price and who if anyone is selling them at the best price.

Definitely the V Strom rims are not the prettiest ... in fact, spoked rims would be much better only if they are Tubeless!

Having seen the new Strom at the last Phx motorcycle show, I can tell you they are tubeless. Suzuki is using the same type of rim as found on the Super Tenere.

Hopefully they will sell them complete.
For the DR 650 Suzuki only sells the parts, not the complete wheel.
Maybe they will realize there are many of us who want tubeless spoke wheels...

I suggest you look at the sticky thread on the beaked and spoked...

The Euro price has been listed, and it exchanges into just under $3,000. You are better off trading for the new model or a leftover Tenere.

This is my V-Strom 650 L2. The spoked wheels are from Kineo and cost the same. Ä2500,=) as the XT wheels. Only by Kineo you can choose the color and are from a better quality.

Impressive wheels:
Looks like a great design . . . Easy to replace damaged spokes

I'd wondered how they'd sealed all the spokes (for tubeless use).

Easy to see now. The spokes don't go through the rims.

Thanks for posting the photos. The bike with the spoked wheels looks great and the wheels themselves look great.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 46K+. Love it!

That price is in British pounds, so US price is over $2,800.

Thanks for the correction . . . Hopefully, we will have a US supplier some day . . . Too pricey for me.
