I Ride: Panigale 1199 R w/Dymag & CMC rotors, Ducati 916SP, '05 Gixxer w/BST's & CMC rotors, Ohlins
My understanding based on contact w/Jeff and the engineer, plus reading financial pages. Starfire, the actual manufacturer, made rotors for airplanes and trains. The motorcycle market is miniscule. Plus, there is a slight judder in the last feet of stopping on the street. Some persnickety Ducati and BMW owners complained.
Starfire tried to get the Corvette contract from GM but lost out to Brembo.
The manufacturing process, while more cost effective than ceramic, still requires many steps. The CMC's Are more versatile than either ceramic or full CF.
Sicom seems like a (not very) reasonable alternative.
Thanks from bradp51
