More than adequate deceleration is ensured on the 990 SM R by Brembo® brakes with the very finest components. At the front wheel, two radially-mounted four-piston brake callipers bite hard into floating 305 mm discs at the command of the radial master cylinder. So that braking works perfectly even in difficult conditions, a Bosch 9M+‑ABS intervenes in borderline cases to prevent the front wheel from blocking or an unintentional endo. But don’t worry, you only notice the ABS when things get really too hot to handle. Until then, you can control your deceleration with customary, racing precision.
