Brembo GP4-MS info

Does anyone on here know prices on these yet?? I just bought GP4-RX calipers but wondering if I should return them and wait for these new ones... so long as they are in a similar price range.

These are going to be 2K + per side with the Ti pistons. Additionally, there will no doubt be a spec master cylinder that is optimal for the calipers and thats going to be upwards of 800 bucks on the conservative side. The question is why do you need a brake upgrade in the first place? Im guessing that you have either exhausted the capabilities of the stock system (yes the stock master is a POS) and are in need an upgrade to match your abilities or this is a ground up, spec built track bike or this is a "Starbucks" purchase. If this is a track bike and you can afford to be looking at those calipers then just get a proven track system from Brembo (WSBK,Moto America) speck. If this is a street bike and you want pretty calipers, keep what you have. The idiots at the coffee joint will never see anything past the shiny nickel. Now the caveat to the above is that you have the means to just buy cool shit regardless of a practicality factor and what the hell, those calipers are the cats ass, in that case, go nuts man.

After my rear header cracked at Barber, a buddy let me ride his 2010 S1kRR. In that session there was also a very superbikey R1M, with those calipers.

I outbraked him on an 8 year old, clapped out bike, sprung for a guy 70lbs lighter than me, on thei last leg Michelin slicks, into Charlotte’s Web, my least favorite turn on that track.


You definitely need those calipers!
Thanks from Blade Runner and able duc

What is the difference between the GP4-RX and the ones below that you are looking at ?

I got a better question: what is the difference between the OEM Stylema brakes and those GP versions?

The RX is a two piece caliper and the MS is a monobloc.
