Thread: 2019 1250 GS brakes.

    2019 1250 GS brakes.

    Just looked at a 2019 GS at the dealer and observed that the brake calipers no longer display the Brembo name. They simply are stamped BMW. Did BMW stop using Brembo brakes? I cannot find anything on the BMW specification sheets about a change of brake supplier. Any info appreciated.

    The front calipers on the 2019 GS/GSA and RT are no longer Brembo they are U.S. made Hayes calipers.
    The 2019 R1250RS and R still have Brembos front and back.

    Do you know who the brake supplier is?

    I know nothing about Hayes now, but my Father worked for them in the 70's until he retired as a Sales/Factory rep.

    They are the people who patented the heavy truck and a year or two later the car disk brake in 1968 or so.


    They had the chops back in the day, but have no clue who owns or runs them these days.

    They give you more power and add weight. I really hope they did not half step in what you need to haul the bike down from speed.

    It would be disappointing but I can think of no reason to change from Brembo to someone else who brands them with your name, other then cost.
