    Wheel comparison, weight & dimensions

    I originally started this thread to compare the weight of the many wheels available to fit the RSV, Tuono & Falco. Iíve updated it each time I found another set of wheels to weigh.
    As you can see from the photos, Iíve been using the same scale for all measurements. This way we can make an accurate comparison.

    Aprilia now has added the Shiver, Dorsoduro, Mana and RSV4 models to the lineup.
    Fortunately, they kept the exact same wheel dimensions as before, so the older wheels will fit the newer bikes as well.
    Rotor bolt pattern and dish is the same for all years.
    Even the 25mm axles, axle nuts and wheel spacers are all the same, front and rear.

    There is a small difference in wheel mounting dimensions that Aprilia changed starting with the 2003, 04 RSV.

    Front:
    All bikes equipped with radial mount front brake calipers have a 5mm wider rotor mounting flange (see photo).
    Radial caliper front wheel = 115mm
    Axial caliper front wheel = 110 mm
    AF1 sells machined spacers to adapt the early wheels to later bikes:

    Rear:
    Starting with the 2004 RSV, 06 Tuono, Shiver, Dorso, Mana and RSV4, the rear wheel sprocket hub has been moved 3mm to the left of the rim centerline. The rear brake rotor to rim center distance is the same on all years.

    2011 APRC RSV4 introduced a small change on the rear brake rotor mounting to accommodate the sensor ring.

    Many of us use the older wheel on the newer bikes without issues, though the chain line will be slightly off, it is such a small amount that it has no effect on chain/sprocket wear.
    Some people have used a shim to space the cush hub out the extra 3mm.
