oh lalala. is that the Matte Finish? DId that bike start out as the Diavel Carbon?

Did the handling improved? I am a BST owner and I know how good it is. The question is did the BSt provide noticable improvements in the Diavel knowing that it's already equipped with Forged Marchesini's. very nice

Owner said it made a huge difference.
The BST wheel is much lighter than the forged Marchesini wheel in that size.

from the looks of it the owner already did upgrade his exhaust but he chose the "Titanium" exhaust cans instead of the full exhaust. still looks cool though. Time for me to save up to replace the Diavel's stock marchesini's

I'm sure it does improve handling, but I'm not a fan of the look. Besides, I like the contrast on my Marchesinis.

Yes The Contrast Cut Marchesinis look much better.

the looks of the forged Marchesini is really cool. I like the contrast of the raw shiny steel with inside the black painted marchesini's. IMHO, the forged Marchesini's looks better than the BST. the 7 spoke design of the BST is soo early 2000's (similar to the triangular Dymag being so 90's).

Even if the Marchesini's looks better, I still want to have this BST because I have experienced how good the product is. The only thing stopping me is the 4,000US$ price tag (it will be around 6,000us$ if shipped to my country with the taxes). Numerous friends are telling me it will be useless in the Diavel because there is no "Diavel Cup" nor will the Diavel be allowed to compete in races. But I have installed it in the 848 and I know how much it can improve handling. Laptimes aside, the personal satisfaction of being able to turn in late, brake a little bit later and turn in faster is really something. You will also notice the difference even you are simply changing lanes.

Right now I am saving for the 1199, if I still have extra money I will get this mod for the Diavel.
