Compared to the Vespa PX genuine steel wheel rim, the BGM PRO rim is 600g lighter. Since you do not need to mount a tube-type tyre, you will have about 370g less. The unsprung weight is reduced by almost 1kg for each axis (over 64%). The responsiveness of the suspensions improves noticeably.
Thanks to the double hump in the rim well the tyre always bonds to the rim safely. Like for the most recent runflat technology in the automotive sector, if the tyre is punctured for instance by a nail, it loses air but slowly and without sliding from the rim well. The tyre continues to support the vehicle’s weight and this allows you to keep control of the vehicle. The wheel rim also features cutouts between the mounting points. The cooling of the brake is improved.
The rim features a offset of 2.5mm on the left side. If both aluminium rims are mounted the offset will be compensated and it will be unperceptible during the ride.
The rim has no homologation mark and no road approval.
Tubeless tyres (TL) only. Please do not mount tube-type (TT) tyres.
The item includes six high cap nuts (chromed, SW12) as well as a screwed on metal valve (M8x1.25mm). Wheel rim weight 900g.
PLEASE NOTE: All tubeless 10 inch rims for Vespa and Lambretta do not comply with the ETRTO standards. The diameter of the rim centre is larger and during the assembly the tyre cannot cannot fit completely into the dop centre. Manual assembly (with a mounting lever) is very complex since the bead is under stress.
The assembly of the tyre should therefore be made by a technician with appropriate tools (tyre mounting machine).
