Brembo Rotors & Brackets
From the early 1970's, Brembo has been at the forefront of brake disc research and development for competition and production. Brembo's long experience with all types of rotor material (cast-iron, steel, stainless-steel, aluminum, and, most recently, carbon-fiber) assures you of the best-quality discs for your needs, as well as the latest in proven technology (Brembo has offered fixed iron discs for production use since 1973 and competition-grade floating iron discs for general use since 1982!). Whether building all-out racing machinery or fine production motorcycles, Grand Prix teams and Manufacturers around the World demand Brembo. Should you settle for anything less?
Motorquality, in conjunction with Brembo, produces a wide range of discs to fit a variety of makes and models. From one-piece iron discs to floating-iron on beautifully made anodized carriers, chances are there are motorquality discs for your machine. available for: Benelli, Bimota, BMW, Cagiva, Ducati, H-D, Honda, Kawasaki, Laverda, Moto Guzzi, Suzuki, Triumph, and Yamaha.
A word about rotor materials and brake pads
Many Brembo rotors come in ‘MeehaniteTM’ cast-iron, chosen for its superior friction coefficient, high-heat and moisture-absorbtion capabilities, and overall durability. The relatively "soft" nature of cast-iron gives it many of its outstanding properties, and as such, requires proper brake pads to function correctly. (Making brake pads that provide great stopping power isn’t technically difficult if the life of the brake disc isn’t considered. To make pads that provide great stopping power and don’t damage discs is technically difficult, and requires extensive R&D that only a firm with the size and expertise of Brembo can provide). Brembo ‘MeehaniteTM’ cast-iron discs must be used only with Brembo brake pads or pads approved by Brembo or Cyclebrakes to avoid premature wear or damage (indeed, mq/Brembo discs starting with part number "18.-" are supplied with approved pads). Brembo and Cyclebrakes will not be responsible for disc damage resulting from use of non-approved brake pads!
A result of years of intensive development with the leading World GP and Superbike teams, this new, brembo-exclusive material promises improved durability with the same weight and performance advantages of cast-iron discs. Floating on billet- aluminum carriers and offered in very limited availability to legitimate National-Championship level racing efforts. New for ‘98- Floating PATENT- Steel discs for street-OEM applications. Call for details!
