How much lighter are the forged "R" wheels?

MV really isn't very specific about the weight savings of the forged wheels.
there is a lot of data about GRAMS of weight saving in various components...
but never are the wheel weight issues specifically discussed

the forged wheels MUST weigh a lot less than the cast ones

does anyone have any more specific info on this subject?

thanks in advance

According to S. Casaer (former testpilot at MV Agusta), the new rims on the "R" weigh 4kg (= 8,82 lb) less then the wheels on the "S".

The faq weights were directly from the factory on their scales.
