Ceaseless innovation. Research on increasingly hi-tech, high-performance solutions and materials. Brake discs and friction materials of the latest generation…these are just some of the elements that ranks Brembo as the undisputed leader in international competition.

2009 will see further improvements in the hydraulic and mechanical components of Brembo brake systems, following developments designed to ensure that performance levels remain steady for the full race duration. These new solutions have increased rigidity and braking power, as well as reducing the lever effort required on the part of the rider. Brembo has also sought to optimize the feeling between bike and rider, by customizing brake systems to suit individual needs and preferences.

Careful selection of materials has resulted in technological standards of higher quality, which duly translate into high levels of performance, maximum safety and reliability.

Technological innovations applied to MotoGP machines competing in the 2009 Championship reflect the outcome of a constant search for solutions aimed at minimizing weight and maximizing performance. Constant research and development activity is a key to the success enjoyed by Brembo as a maker of both OE and aftermarket parts and – no less important – as a prestige brand in international motorsport competition. Every year, some 5% of total group earnings are invested in studying and designing more and more efficient brake systems and services. This is a factor that plays a significant part in underpinning Brembo’s reputation as a leading name and a renowned innovator in the field of high performance braking systems technology.

Brembo is also supplier to the following Constructors: Aprilia, Honda, Gilera in the 250cc class, and Aprilia, KTM, Maxtra and Derby in the 125cc class.
