Light wheels

I have been running forged light wheels for almost two years and I do believe they make the bike feel a bit more " nimble "

On the street, I'm not that into them. On the track, hell yeah, you'll notice a difference. Especially if you put on some lighter tires like the Michelin Power Cups...

Unnecessary on the street. You can't tap half this bike's performance as it is. For the track, well, why waste money on a bike that ultimately is not meant for track use. It's fast but at the end of the day, it's a sport bike on stilts.

If you have the money to blow sure I guess, other than that...I wouldn't bother.

I agree with the previous answers. The only reason I would and am considering lighter wheels are for the track. Why would I track the Multi? It's the only bike I have, and a second set of wheels & tires for the track are easier to maintain than a second bike. This also gives me an option for the type of riding I would be doing. Stock wheels with mileage oriented tires for daily shores & commuting, & the aforementioned set for the track or mountains.
