Brembo Rotor Upgrade

Brembo Rotor Upgrade

 

The pros, by far, outweigh the cons on my 2011 Ducati Multistrada S. The bike

has been raved about, extensively, from owners and magazines alike. I, like most

motorcycle owners, am never quite happy enough. Over the last 2 1/2 years of

owning this bike I have had some of the more standard mods done, including,

exhaust, tune boy dyno tuned, front and rear springs to match my weight,

because I'm a bit on the heavier side, and now upgraded Brembo HP rotors for

the front. I have always had my work done at Indy Ducati and it was their

recommendation to do this. The Multi out of the box brake system is adequate,

for most riding. My complaints came during extended, spirited riding found in the

states to the south and east of us. During this, I would get fade under heavy

braking and at times a slight hop maybe from a small warp in one of the rotors. It

was also underperforming when riding 2 up, with luggage. I never felt

comfortable really pushing the brakes.

I know what some of you are thinking, it's a Multi, if you want to ride like that you

should get an SBK. Well friends, to answer that, I really don't want to ride

hundreds of miles a day leaned over and not exactly sure how it would do on

gravel. To answer that, if you have never ridden a Multi I would strongly

encourage you to ride a demo!

Back to the brakes. Immediately after picking up the bike it was easy to tell the

rotors were an upgrade. The inside of the rotor was once a faded black is now a

very nice Brembo gold that matches nicely to the Ohlins. After taking off, the

initial bite was a great deal better. On my 60 mile trip home of mixed highway and

back roads, the brakes never lost feeling. The brake bite was constant, with no

fade. I'm looking forward to really putting them through the paces! I'm confident

that they will stand up to the task. If you have a Multi, and would like a great

upgrade, I would highly recommend this!

I want to give a big thanks to the folks at Indy Ducati for all of their help.
