INDY LIVE 2012: Brembo brings its performance pedigree to V-Twin

Brembo (Booth 3841) is one of the top names when it comes to racing and performance parts, with the company’s products on the front end of nearly every A-list machine and racing class grid, as well as a large number of performance-minded OEMs such as Suzuki and BMW.

While Brembo has already earned a place as an OEM supplier for many braking components on Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Brembo’s latest offerings aim to expand that presence. The new LED-body radial master cylinder combines a minimalist style aimed at custom bike builders while still offering function and performance on par with more sporting machines.

Another product aimed specifically at the V-twin market is the new family of .484 calipers (with .484 being the caliper displacement in cubic inches, better to match American sensibilities). Bathed in a clean black anodizing, the billet calipers are sold in an application-ready kit complete with hardware and sintered pads, with fitments for 98 percent of Harley-Davidson’s lineup. Best of all, the calipers utilize the same bore sizing as OE, making the new calipers an easy fit to motorcycles without requiring changes to existing master cylinders.
