Detroit-based Brembo, a supplier of brake systems for cars, commercial vehicles, and motorbikes worldwide, has introduced a new concept inspired by the first brake caliper for motorbikes produced by the company, embodying its vision of the future of mobility.
The core of the concept of its New G Sessanta lies in the application of LED technology directly on the body of the caliper. This solution is adaptable to every application and type of caliper and enhances its form and function: it can be both an interface, communicating directly with the user, and an aesthetic choice, adapting to the user’s tastes and preferences.
The light takes Brembo’s experience in the use of color to a higher level, giving it new values, the company says.
The New G Sessanta concept is designed to be personalized, by using wireless technology. When the vehicle is at stop, the user can control the desired shade of light to express mood, enhance the style of the bike, or adapt it to the surroundings.
The use of color and light also has the potential to enable data and information to be sent on the conditions of the vehicle and the caliper itself, or even help find a parked vehicle by emitting a courtesy light.
The Brembo New G Sessanta concept celebrates the design of the brand’s first-ever brake caliper, manufactured in 1972 for motorbikes, and the name of its designer.
