2011 Suzuki GSX-R 600/750 Brembo Brake Calipers Detailed

The recently released GSX-R 600 and 750 models from Suzuki will benefit from new, specially designed brake calipers from Brembo. The supply will last for approximately three years, and Brembo will use this to strengthen its presence on 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 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.
