STEZZANO, Italy – During this week’s EICMA – International Motorcycle and Accessories Exhibition, in Milan, Brembo introduced the new GP4-MINI caliper, designed specifically for motorbikes used on the track by the younger generations, who are racing to become the riders of the future, tackling international circuits with the same technologies used in the higher categories.
The new GP4-MINI joins the GP4 family of brake calipers, the ultimate expression of which is used in MotoGP and which also includes the GP4-RS cast monobloc Brembo caliper; the GP4-RR billet monobloc caliper for racing applications only; the GP4-RX billet two-piece caliper and the GP4-MS, which combines billet machining with monobloc technology for road use.
This new two-piece, 4-piston, radial mount, billet caliper has an extreme design inspired by some of the styling cues also used on the calipers of large displacement supersport models.
It also incorporates the characteristic elements of the prestigious GP4-MS, with ribs between the central bridge, which embrace the pistons and give rigidity to the system, to the benefit of consistent performance on the track.
The hard oxidation finish treatment gives strength and performance even at high operating temperatures.
Particular attention has been paid to the study of the internal ducting, to ensure optimal system bleeding. At the same time, the amount of fluid inside the braking system has been reduced, resulting in more consistent performance and a very direct and linear feeling of lever travel and braking power. This characteristic is crucial when braking on the track with the bike in the crease.
With the new GP4-MINI, Brembo continues on its path to become a “solution provider” and, through continued excellence in innovation, style and design, to be the cool brand to which the younger generations of the future will aspire.
The new GP4-MINI is scheduled to be available on the market from 2023.
