That's what I remember seeing reported from cycle world:

New five-spoke star-design wheels are finished in black and polished aluminum. As you’d expect on such a machine, the inner faces of the rim flanges on the H2R are knurled to prevent tire slip. The closed-circuit, non-DOT bike is delivered with 120/600R-17 and 190/650R-17 Bridgestone slicks. For the A-spec road-legal bike, tires are Bridgestone Battlax RS10SG.
