If you tally up all the bikes and riders in MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, WSBK and WSS, you’ll find that nearly 90% of them are running braking systems from Brembo. This is a massive testbed for the development of new technologies, and this is exactly where their newest rotors came to be. These rotors, called T-Drive, use a unique, patent-pending type of interface to connect the disc and the carrier. Gone are the circular button type connectors normally seen on floating rotors. In their place, Brembo used a set of eight “T” shaped pins on the disc side that couple with the carrier through a guillotine type connection.

The new T-Drive interface that gives the rotors their name was developed and tested at the highest levels of competition, where rotors are subjected to very extreme levels of thermal and mechanical stress. When completed, the new design showed improved resistances to both of these forces while also allowing for a more efficient transfer of brake torque from disc to wheel. Improvements to durability and performance can often come at the expense of a higher weight, but that is not the case here. Brembo managed to make these improvements while also saving a significant amount of weight. This reduction in unsprung weight, plus the more efficient performance add up to enhanced rideability for your bike and more confidence for you.

If you’re interested in more information about the Brembo T-Drive rotors, feel free to get in touch with Brad by calling 866.931.6644 ext. 810, or by sending a message through this forum. If email is more convenient, you can send one to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM and we’ll get back to you right away!

Brembo T-Drive rotors feature the same steel used in SBK and MotoGP discs. The carrier has a black anodized finish.

A closer look at the T-Drive interface between the disc and carrier.

Here's a sneak peak at what we'll be pairing up with a set of Brembo T-Drive rotors on our Triumph Daytona 675 project bike. (Hint: There are 7 magnesium spokes sandwiched between these rotors.)
