The Benelli wheel is NOT a straight 'bolt in' alternative BUT is of a similar design and at a fraction of the price.

The bearing size on the TNT wheel is 30mm but they use a sleeve to reduce it down.....you could machine a new spacer to fit the spindle you have,

I have used these wheels until the correct ones are available or at a secondhand price.......buying a single wheel from the 'official outlets' is very expensive.

Bimota do not really answer emails ...they prefer that you go via one of the parts people rather than direct to the factory

I hope that this helps

And of ducati?

This is from ducati 1000ss 2004 marchesini, is similar design, but i dont know if is compatible or easy plug and play.

If you can find any...have a look at Cagiva Raptor wheels....either the 600 or the 1000cc....fairly sure they are the same wheels as used on DB5 and Db6 standard bikes....changing wheels means changes to spindles, spacers, offsets, chain alignment etc etc...Bimota tend to use Oversize spindles on their bikes

But You recommend the benelli tnt 1130 because it is easier to dock or just because the aesthetics is more precious? For example, are the discs easily attached or do they need to be attached? The ducati tire costs 110e of benelli 190e and I do not know if the work is going to be the same, if it is only to fit the inner bearing I prefer benelli


Sorry for the traduction

Xarly...........the easiest solution can be the best.
Firstly........If your discs are OK and 6 bolt then go with a 6 bolt wheel.
there appears to be 3 options Cagiva, Benelli and Ducati.........for sure Benelli use the biggest spindle bearing sizes and may be better for the Bimota forks.

Secondly if you have the forks but not the discs...the cost of the Cagiva and Benelli wheel should be cheaper than the Ducati...simply due to just needing the spindle machining.

There is NO simple 'Bolts straight in' alternative..that I am aware of....everything needs lining up and spacing...
but the amount of work can be reduced depending on what you have to hand and which is still good from the damaged bike.

Sorry that the answer is not too clear...but ...it is a Bimota.

regards
Gavin

Hi! Good news, i buy this pack from the benelli trk 1130, very cheap



My original bimota front axle gets perfect on this rim, failing to take rest measures of disks (320mm) and spacers
