Winning this award further underlines the distinctive design of Brembo’s solutions and confirms the company’s unwavering commitment to bringing innovation to the mobility of tomorrow and the unparalleled capacity to combine design and performance up to top motorsport championships.

The award-winning 19RCS CORSA CORTA RR is the 2022 evolution of the company’s radial master cylinder that combines even greater performance and lightness with a sporty look, in line with SuperSport and Naked bikes for which it has been designed. Machined from billet of Aeronautical Aluminum Alloy and finished with a hard oxidation treatment, its high level of technology is directly derived from the master cylinders used in MotoGP and SBK championships.

In all its improvements over the years, the lever has always been highly regarded by enthusiasts since it allows riders to tailor the “bite point” exactly where they want it, with an easily accessible selector on the top of the master cylinder itself.
