Brembo Brakes

After years of cooperation in MotoGP, Brembo is also now a supplier for Suzuki road bikes with a new brake caliper designed specifically for the latest version of the GSX-R 600 and 750, the flagship Super Sport model of the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer.

With this new supply, which will last for approximately three years, Brembo reconfirms its position as one of the favorite suppliers of the leading motorcycle manufacturers and strengthens its presence in the Japanese motorcycle market, where it has been working with Yamaha for some years.

In the first half of 2010, Suzuki was the third largest Japanese manufacturer in terms of sales volume in Europe, and its models GSXR 600 and 750 are both in the top ten Super Sport models sold in Europe.

With this new application, Brembo further consolidates its position in the new motorcycle market, adding another prestigious brand to the list of its many international customers, including Aprilia, BMW, BRP-Bombardier Recreational Products, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Husqvarna, KTM, Moto Guzzi, MV Augusta, Piaggio, Triumph and Yamaha.

The Brembo Product: the front monobloc M4x32 caliper, customized for the two versions of the GSX-R, Suzuki’s top sportbike yet, contains 4 pistons of 32 mm diameter and is based on the Brembo monobloc technology, identical to the one used in MotoGP and World Superbike, which, using exclusive, cutting-edge production technologies, offers a light, compact product with high stiffness.

The brake caliper M4x32 has a 108mm mounting distance and offers high performance in terms of brake power and control.
