I believe that is the new system starting to come through. not sure about the benefits etc, but it appears to offer a larger breaking area with less weight. I believe the Buells use them now?

I like the blonde "brake" girl seated into the rider seat.

the rotor is in the center of the wheel. so how do the calipers grab? what are they mounted too? for that matter, how does the brake line reach the caliper? i think they made that crap up just to get the chicks.

well further looking at it, the calipers must mount on the hub somehow and the brake line runs into the front axle...still only created to get the chicks.

my buell had some serious issues with the single caliper brake deal.... it would not react good while in lean and you grab the brake, it would stand up very quickly..... not a good feeling while in the turns (one more thing to deal with) other than that, I never had much fade, but the brake pads didn't laast long at all.

I don't know how they have the calipers between the wheel there.... where would they mount??
