SBS already have 2015 pads
DANISH brake manufacturer SBS (Scandinavian Brake Systems) is regarded as one of the leading pad makers in the world and sells fitments for most popular makes and models of street, sport and MX bikes.
Having been the factory behind a well known distributor of v-twin market and own-brand programs for many years, SBS has been selling under its own brand in the Harley aftermarket in the past 18 months or so, with considerable success and market acceptance.
AMD met up with their North American Sales Manager and v-twin market specialist Johan Rauff Kristensen at INTERMOT, who told us that the company already has fitments available for all 2015 Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian models.
"The good news for our dealers is that their existing stock of SBS pad shapes will cover all the 2015s, so they can start upgrading their customers' bikes with superior SBS stopping power straight away.
"The fact that SBS already covers another year from all three American V-twin manufacturers with existing shapes gives dealers and workshops a tremendous advantage due to the fact that their stock of brake pads will sell faster and can be run leaner than with, for example, OE brake pads, all in all leading to better financial results and more satisfied customers when they experience a better ride from improved brake performance and feel", Johan said.
