The ultimate brake caliper with MotoGP technology for road use
Brembo, the leading company in the development and production of high-performance braking systems, presents at EICMA 2023 the latest evolution in the Brembo GP4 family: the GP4-MotoGP caliper.
The GP4-MotoGP - available in a 100mm fixing version - boasts exceptional performance, thanks to the oblique pad slide, typical of MotoGP calipers, which allows a greater braking power with the same amount of force applied to the lever. Furthermore it has a greater anti-drag effect, instant pads release and less pad wear.
Particular attention has been paid to the introduction of ventilation fins on the outer body and the new racing pistons, both characteristics which improves the braking system’s thermal exchange, contributing to cooling it. This is achieved by air circulation as a result of vehicle movement, but more importantly by rotational-induced air movement of the brake discs and wheel. No less important is their strong aesthetic impact that makes the design of the caliper sharper and bolder.
Designed and developed to equip the ultimate generation of powerful road bikes, the GP4-MotoGP is a brake caliper born from the racetrack for the road and perfectly suits the needs of today’s motorcycles and the most demanding track enthusiasts. The caliper is capable of taking performance and sportiness on the road to an unprecedented level.
Just like the Brembo calipers used by professional riders in MotoGP and SBK, this new monobloc caliper is machined from solid billet of aluminum. Compared to braking components manufactured by casting, machining from solid allows the use of materials with better mechanical characteristics, greater resistance even in extreme operation and, consequently, improvement to the performance of the entire braking system without compromising on durability.
The ribbing on the front section embraces four pistons in aluminum and ensures the utmost rigidity of the system, transmitting to the rider a strong feeling of safety and reliability of the bike. Strength and pure performance even at high temperatures are also given by the nickel-coating treatment which gives a brighter and smoother look, while still ensuring durability, wear resistance and optimal performance on the road for an uncompromising riding experience.
Brembo has been supplying MotoGP teams since its inception and all the riders on the grid have relied on its braking solutions since 2016. From this year is also the Braking Inspiration Partner of the FIM MotoGP™: a new and exciting role for the next three seasons, in which it will provide the data in a completely new graphic format during live television broadcasts worldwide, also presenting exclusive content of what happens behind the scenes.
