In the first half of 2010, Suzuki was the third largest Japanese manufacturer in terms of sales volume in Europe, and its models GSX-R 600 and 750 are both in the top ten Super Sport models sold in Europe.
Other international customers that Brembo is working with include Aprilia, BMW, BRP-Bombardier Recreational Products, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Husqvarna, KTM, Moto Guzzi, MV Augusta, Piaggio, Triumph and Yamaha.
As for the new brake caliper for the new gixxers, the front monobloc M4x32 caliper contains 4 pistons of 32 mm in diameter and is based on the Brembo monobloc technology, identical to the one used in MotoGP and SBK.
“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,” Brembo says.
The new GSX-R750 and GSX-R600 models both feature completely new chassis designs, each based on a more compact, lighter twin-spar aluminum frame with a 15 mm shorter wheelbase. The new middleweight gixxer bikes, fitted with a liquid-cooled engine with Suzuki Ram-Air Direct (SRAD) induction and a digital engine management system, come with improved throttle response, mid-rpm torque and peak engine output.
