Brembo has begun supply braking systems for Harley-Davidson’s Touring Platform. Brembo has been supplying braking systems for the VRSC platform during the past three years and has now added the Touring platform, which accounts for some 35 percent of the entire H-D output, according to a Brembo press release.
With this new agreement, Brembo becomes the braking systems OEM supplier for more than 40 percent of Harley-Davidson motorbikes, around 350,000 per year, according to 2006 Harley-Davidson brand data.
Paolo Magri, director of Brembo’s Moto Business Unit, said the Brembo team should be credited for this accomplishment.
“It is even more of a success, when considering how significantly the volume of motorcycle braking systems made by Brembo will be increased by the new deal,” he said in the release.
