This is identical to the front Beringer 6 Piston Front Brake Caliper that KTM has raced with for years. Over in Europe where Supermoto Tracks are bigger allowing riders the real estate to generate huge amounts of speed you need a brake caliper that will do the job yet stay cooler than the rest.
The reason they use 6 piston units is because of feel and the side benefit is because of the larger surface area of the caliper you also get a much cooler running front brake system. This keeps your brake fluid cooler and your brakes working at optimal performance.
KTM brake calipers are distinguished by the following features:
» CNC-machined from high-strength solid aluminum
» Chrome-plated pad guide pins on the brake caliper
» Reduced brake pad canting, hence no uneven wear
» Constant braking feel, irrespective of brake pad wear or temperature
» No vibration from the brake
We recommend use of hand pump 587.13.001.100 and brake hose 594.13.011.000 (SX) or 800.13.011.000 (EXC).
