    I ordered the spoked rims when I bought my 2021 950S.  I think I paid only about AUD$1500 extra, and now I've got both pairs.
    Itís later than you think.

    My 2021 950S was originally fitted with spoked wheels, when i look at my page on 'My Ducati', it's also registered as '950S Spoked wheels'.
    But i didn't liked the spoked wheels, i don't like the rims edge sticking out next to the tires, showing the head of the spokes and i didn't liked the fact that these wheels put more weight to the bike than cast alloys.
    So i made a deal with my dealer, they switched the spoked wheels for the 2022 V2S alloys from a bike witch was already in the showroom.
    Another advantage, the 2022 alloys actually are lighter and better looking (only slightly) than the 2021 alloys.

    A few weeks later when i visited the dealer, the 2022  V2S was picked up by its new owner, with the spoked wheels.
    He thought the were stunning.
    Everybody happy....
