MotoGP’s official partner for all of its braking systems is Brembo, and the brand sheds a bit of light on the science and technology that comes together and stops the fastest motorcycles in the world. Andrea Pellegrini steps in front of the camera to explain the ins and outs of a GP braking system.
Braking systems in MotoGP are insane, and they get better every year as the bikes get faster and faster. It’s one thing to be able to stop your bike from 200 miles per hour once, but it is another to repeat that feat over and over again throughout the course of a high-stakes Grand Prix race. As such, GP bikes have space-age technologies rather than the stuff that we mere mortals use on a daily basis.
