Brembo to Supply Suzuki Brakes for Three Years

10/11/2010 @ 10:03 am, by Jensen Beeler4 COMMENTS

When we caught our first glimpse of the 2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 & 2011 Suzuki GSX-R 750 motorcycles, one of the things that struck us about the new bikes, besides the redesigned front fairing and 20lbs of missing mass, was the use of Brembo calipers as an OEM part. A premium part that’s usually reserved for premium brand motorcycles, Brembo and Suzuki have signed at three-year agreement that sees the Italian company supplying the Japanese manufacturer with braking bits for its GSX-R line.

Being initially used on the 2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 & 2011 Suzuki GSX-R 750 models, Brembo has modified its M4 caliper to fit the Japanese fork bottoms, creating the M4x32. The monobloc calipers have four 32mm pistons, and will start on the 600/750 line, although we can expect to see Brembo calipers on the 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000. With this partnership, Suzuki joins the ranks of Aprilia, BMW, BRP-Bombardier Recreational Products, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Husqvarna, KTM, Moto Guzzi, MV Augusta, Piaggio, Triumph, and Yamaha in the list of companies that use the Italian firm’s braking components.

    When i saw it first time i thougth it was a regular caliper cause i didn’t see the Drilling and Torx Aluminium Caps (usually on the back side) that give away Monos (or so i believed). + now upclose i see no line showing halves.

    How do they bore these out with out going thru the back of ones of the sides? (2008 R1 Calipers design comes to mind)

    Magic CNC’ing…? WTF ?! (o_O )?

    Anyways, back to the topic, if they are better than Nissins and Tokicos and they got a deal with Brembo…..more power to Suzuki.
