BREMBO HPK RADIAL MASTER BRAKE CYLINDER 17RCS DUCATI Panigale 1199 (2012 – 2014)
RCS17 Brake Master Cylinder
Radial master cylinder designed for road bikes that allows top level response time and perfectly modulated braking in any conditions of use, with excellent linearity between the force applied to the lever and braking response. The 17 RCS further enhances the braking feeling of all sports bikes equipped with the latest Brembo Monoblock M50 caliper. Optimization of the hydraulics between the M50 caliper and 17 RCS master cylinder was the result of painstaking design work to provide greater braking performance.
This master cylinder is equipped with the RCS system, patented by Brembo for adjustment of the lever’s inter-axis, which allows the ideal feeling between rider and bike to be achieved. In just a few seconds, using a simple screwdriver, the brakes can be made more aggressive and responsive (20 mm) or softer and more adaptable (18 mm). With the cam in position 18, highlighted in red, a more adaptable braking feeling can be achieved; with the cam in position 20, highlighted in black, the braking feeling is sharper and more responsive.
This model uses a 17 mm diameter piston and a folding long lever (LL), a detail which is particularly popular with Racing riders and track day enthusiasts.
Brembo uses only cutting-edge procedures and processes to ensure outstanding operation and performance. In fact, the aluminum alloy master cylinder body is obtained through forging and is subsequently machined with numeric controlled machines.
As with all RCS master cylinders, the RCS 17 also comes with a micro-switch kit to activate the brake light and a special coupling for connection to the hydraulic line.
