Brembo Brakes Added to Kawasaki Z-Line Flagship

Source: The following is excerpted from a Road Racing World & Motorcycle Technology post about the revised Kawasaki motorcycle incorporating Brembo brakes.

TOKYO – Kawasaki’s flagship model of the Z line of naked motorcycles just got better as the 2021 Z H2 SE adds a smoother ride and more stopping power to the already innovative Z H2 package.

While retaining the ultimate combination of outright power and controllability, the new 2021 Kawasaki Z H2 SE comes equipped with Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS).

The new electronic suspension also features Showa’s Skyhook technology, delivering a smoother ride, which contributes to increased comfort and enjoyment.

Complementing the high-tech suspension are premium Brembo® front brake components, which add to even greater stopping power and control.

The Z H2 SE was developed to deliver supercharged power, a chassis that provides superb maneuverability, daily comfort, and a host of advanced features designed for maximum functionality. The Kawasaki Z H2 SE is a truly unique motorcycle and offers a glimpse of the future.

New on the 2021 Z H2 SE is a premium spec Brembo front brake package which includes Stylema monobloc calipers and a Brembo front master cylinder and steel-braided lines, offering stronger braking performance and enhanced control.

The Stylema calipers are lighter, with smaller external dimensions and have less volume around the pistons and brake pads, enabling a more direct response. The Stylema calipers also cool rapidly, thanks to increased airflow around the brake pads, pistons and an opening that allows air to exit from the central bridge.

The lightweight 17” wheels are equipped with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, front and rear. The front tire is a 120/70ZR17 M/C 58W; the rear tire is a 190/55ZR17 M/C 75W.
