Brembo Braking System for Sportster S

Described as "cutting-edge components for the new generation of Harley-Davidson Sportsters," Brembo says a new braking system designed for the Sportster S "reflects the hallmarks of Brembo braking systems - performance, light weight and style."



The 4-piston (32 mm) monobloc radial front caliper "boasts a unique design and strong personality. Its shape combines sharp edges with softer curves to create a style that matches the personality of the bike. This silhouette was developed through the use of topological optimization software, which optimizes caliper stiffness while minimizing weight.
"The result is a new geometry that takes full advantage of the material's characteristics. During the design phase of the caliper, Brembo was also able to improve the ventilation channels, thus increasing cooling.

"Combined with a race-bred radial brake master cylinder (15 mm diameter) with pre-applied reservoir, self-bleeding optimized reservoir connections, extremely compact signal microswitches and an axial rubber dust boot with low axial clearance, the response of the lever is immediate with adjustable deceleration in all riding conditions.

"For the rear, Brembo has a brand-new caliper with larger braking surface area pads and volume to increase service life and the braking efficiency of the system - a dual mounting pin makes pad servicing easier.
"A 320 mm diameter front brake disc and rear master cylinder with retained pushrod complete the new Brembo Sportster S braking system."
