Alpina wheels for 1200R

Has anybody tried these Alpina wheels? Without a center stand, it is impossible to fix a flat. With a tubeless tyre, I have a chance to get to work!
Thanks

Get a set of cast or forged wheels to go with the USD forks and radial brakes. Lighter as well.

Would be interested to see these when you get them, please post a pic. They'd have to be half the weight of the stock wheels! Triumph needs a cast wheel option for the T120 that is tubeless.

I'd love cast wheels for my T120. Any suggestions of brand/source?

No, not really unless Oz or Marchesini or Dymag or other sport bike brands have a fitment. Carrozzeria maybe for the T120 since you don't have the same wheel spec as the Thruxton R. The Thruxton has sport bike spec tire sizing vs the T120. I'm surprised that Triumph isn't offering a set of mags for the Thruxton range as an option at a more affordable price. Don't think the switch would be without modification for the T120. I assume the Street Twin wheels are not the same size as for the T120 or T100.

They are the same size but have no ability to mount a second brake disk.

...they need a lightweight tubeless spoked option as well.
