In fact, I want him to weigh them both, too.
I should mention that I put regular MP3 wheels on my GTS, because it looked cool, and those wheels were notably lighter than the GTS wheels--according to published weights, of course. I do think they helped acceleration and ride. Really.

The problem with the 13" wheels IMHO is that they dont roll better--same circumference--dont ride better--less tire volume-- and are probably heavier than mine, and likely stock wheels too. At least they look killer. As does his whole scooter.

I'm getting a set of the Yourban wheels on my GTS, and wrapping with Michelin Power Pure 130/60/13's in about a month from now. I can likely get the weight of them, and will post it if I can find out prior to me getting them. If not once I have them I will get the weight of the wheels alone and the wheel + tire combination.

Going to be putting them on this:

and custom painting both wheels to match these:

looks much better and will match the whole Super Bee theme. The spoke design very closely matches the cars as well which is the entire reason for this idea.

That will look sick!!
The Yourban wheels are very sharp indeed.

Also, what saddle is that? Nice.

That is a custom made Pirate Upholstery seat. Its a cafe racer style. Here is a different pic so you can see the other angle.
