Ferodo adds over 100 2018 applications

Italian brake pad manufacturer Ferodo added more than 100 new applications to its 2018 new model brake pad programme at EICMA last November, with more introduced since.
The latest additions include front pads for the Tokiko calipers on 2018 Honda models, including VFR F, CB 1000 R/plus, and the 2017 1100 RS and 1000 RR.

 Ferodo’s new front pad applications for 2018 include the Honda CBR 1000 in road and race compounds

Other recent additions include pads for Aprilia RX/SX; BMW, including the F750/850 GS; Derbi Senda; Ducati models; Husqvarna TC 50/65; Kawasaki Ninjas and Z900s; KTM models; Kymco; MV Agusta; Piaggio MP3s; Sym Cruisym, Jet, Joymax and Mio; Suzuki models, including GSX R/S, 125/250 ABS 2016-17, the Triumph Tiger and Yamaha models, including Tenere, TMax, Tracer and X-Max.

Ferodo also has a new brake grease available - a copper-free mounting paste based on high viscosity silicon oil containing pure, natural graphite. It has high lubricity and delivers long durability, and high damping properties reduce vibration, squeal and noise; and is rubber compatible, so it won’t cause issues with tyre compounds.
It has been extensively tested, successfully reporting less than 10 percent loss through evaporation when exposed to 200 degrees centigrade for 500 hours - low evaporation loss is a main characteristic of a high-performance grease.
