so it was bound to happen ,i remember seing 8 piston standard mount calipers, a yr or so ago,and they never really took off .You gotta figure if Rossi and the rat pack are using those 4 piston radial mount NISSINS and BREMBO's for yrs and they are pushing 200+hp and going over 200mph before they grab a handfull ,they would have figured out a long time ago if a 6 piston was better than 4 .I say its a passing fad.Ort maybe something to look forward to if the big boys adopt the technology .You cant go to much further than a GP BIKE as far as ground breaking unimagined TECH marvels ,although im sure they will .What are we to expect in the yr 2020 ? hydrogen powered jet cycles with atomizing flux capacitors ? How far is it gonna go in the bigger is better ?
