The range of Brembo “.484” calipers is aimed at both the Custom bikes and the Café Racer worlds. The name “.484” derives from the unitary displacement of the single caliper pistons, measured in cubic inches, typical of the VTwin market.
For the Custom bikes, the axial mounting and fixing centres (69.1mm) of the “.484 CUSTOM” make it compatible with the majority of custom forks offered on the market, with no need for any modifications to the machine. In addition, the caliper can be paired with 11.5” (292 mm) OE discs. The kit can be purchased in both left and right hand versions, to suit the particular model of motorcycle.
This new caliper is made of Racing aluminium and machined using precision CNC equipment. It is fashioned entirely from billet, and the body given a charcoal grey black anodized finish. The visual package is completed by the Brembo logo, machined in relief and available in two finishes — all black (‘logonero’), or bright aluminium (‘logopuro’).
For the most widely spread Japanese super sport bikes and Café Racers the new caliper in the Brembo “.484” range aims to meet the needs of diehard enthusiasts who favour the standard centre distance 108 mm and are looking to improve the performance of their brake systems, with the feel and image of a Café Racer firmly in mind. Like the “.484 Custom”, the “108 mm” is made of Racing aluminium and machined entirely from billet stock on CNC equipment, using the latest CAM technologies.
The caliper is supplied with sintered brake pads already fitted, accompanied by full instructions and a pair of Brembo stickers, and is compatible with the majority of brake master cylinders currently in circulation.
