New Beringer brake system

 

Beringer the well known French manufacturer of brake systems for motorcycles have launched a new product at the EICMA in Milan 2 weeks ago. An innovative braking system not yet seen before on a motorcycle.

They call it the inboard braking system. The system comes from the airplane industry and has some interesting advantages:

- three times less inertia

- 500 gram(1lbs) weight savings

- 20% more brake power

Some very impressive numbers I must say. Stay tuned for a more indept article about this braking system soon.

Derbi DRD EVO SM Limited edition

 

 

 

From now on Supermoto Central will also be reporting about the Supermoto bikes available for the younger readers(or for the kids of older readers). Like 50cc Supermoto's,Pitbikes and 125cc models.

The first news is about Derbi's new Limited Edition DRD EVO SM. It's pretty much a normal DRD EVO SM with some fancy black Paioli 40mm forks, new rear suspension, red wheel striping, red brake calipers.

Personally I think the bike would look better with a normal Supermoto style front fender but who am I to judge. Prices not available yet.

Another Supermoto boot

 



Today I got an e-mail in my inbox from Bernd Hiemer himself. Bernd is the 2008 S1 World Champion and he told me he really liked the site. He also noted I didn't have the Daytona Evo Supermoto boots in the Supermoto boots feature. Bernd helped designing the boots and has won the 2008 S1 World Title with them.
