Yes, but speed increase is only by a small margin, maybe at most 3-4km/h faster. It is not worth the money spend. By changing you stock 406 wheelset to a 451 wheels. you may also to need to change to a new set of brake caliper.

If your JAVA is a 7 speed, there are no 451 wheelsets in the market that can fit your 7 speed cassette. Also, you're using disc brakes, which makes it more difficult to find 451 wheelsets locally.
