Brembo Brake India which is engaged in
development, production and sales of disc brake systems for 2 wheelers with the Bybre
brand has launched two new products for the scooter and motorcycle segment at
the Auto Expo 2018-Components. The company is based in Pune, and was originally
set up in 2006 as a joint venture held in equal stakes by Brembo S.p.A. and the
Bosch Chassis Systems India Ltd.
Since 2008, the company is
100% part of Brembo. The company is engaged as OE supplier to almost all the
players in India like Royal Enfield, Bajaj, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Harley
Davidson, etc. with disc brake market share of 50%. The company also exports
it’s brake system/ aggregates to BRP Mexico, Suzuki Indonesia, etc. and at
present has 2 manufacturing facilities with mother plant in Pune, Maharashtra
and satellite plant in Manesar, Gurgaon with approx. 1000 people in operation
at these two locations.
The two new products include a
new product for scooter range and a completely new combined braking system for
motorcycle equipped with front disc and rear drum brake.
NEW COMBINED BRAKE SYSTEM
The combined brake system
improves safety and comfort while braking on small and medium displacement
bikes which are equipped with rear drum brake system. The new Bybre combined
braking system for motorcycle is equipped with front disc and rear drum brake.
It improves rider safety by allowing the optimum use of the brakes and reducing
stopping distances when apply the rear brake pedal – even for the novice user.
This system consists of a twin
circuit floating front calliper with three 24 mm diameter pistons. The two
outside pistons are driven by a 12mm diameter handlebar-mounted front master
cylinder. The central piston is activated by a brand new combined brake system
actuator. The actuator, which is installed on the rear drum brake rod, is
activated by pushing the rear brake pedal and it generates a hydraulic pressure
driven to the central piston of the front calliper. This determines the correct
braking torque distribution between front and rear wheels.
The combined brake system
ensures that when the brake pedal is operated the rear wheel will always
lock-up before the front and provides much better performance than a rear only
activated brake. This is an important safety feature, especially for novice
riders reluctant to use the front brake fully on slippery road surfaces. Combined
brake system or ABS will become mandatory on all scooters and bikes up to 125cc
under new Indian regulations that come into effect in 2018.
Besides a complete range of
floating calliper and front and rear master cylinders, Bybre is also providing
front four pistons fix radial calliper currently used on KTM and BMW vehicles. Moreover,
Bybre provides fully bled ABS system to the major Indian motorcycle producers.
BYBRE LAUNCHES NEW PRODUCTS FOR THE SCOOTER RANGE
The new components developed
specifically for medium-engine capacity scooters, an ever growing sector in the
On the occasion of Auto Expo
2018, BYBRE presents a new 190 mm diameter front disc and a new axial master
cylinder with 11 mm diameter barrel, all paired with the new double piston
floating calliper (PF2x24).
The calliper, with an
aluminium body and steel support, was designed with particular attention to the
weight and versatility of the product. The calliper has two reduced diameter
pistons and the geometry of the calliper body makes it compatible with
motorcycle discs as well.
Despite its compact size, the calliper
is fitted with pads comparably sized with those used in larger callipers. All
of this guarantees a particularly positive ratio between the areas of the pads
and the pistons themselves, guaranteeing high mileage before having to replace
The calliper uses a new pads
spring concept that guarantees correct positioning of the pads throughout their
lives and it implements protection systems for the sliding guides developed specifically
to withstand the most severe conditions.
