        Few brake manufacturers have the same legendary reputation as Italian brand Brembo, which produces stopping equipment for some of the fastest and best-handling motorcycles around. This company has come up with all sorts of innovations in the field, but nothing quite like its newest concept: the G Sessanta caliper.

        Essentially a brake caliper equipped with LED lighting, the Brembo G Sessanta caliper concept is sorta like the neon underglow you see on custom cars, but this time with phone connectivity.

        Like many smartphone-linked innovations in the field, the G Sessanta works by way of a app that allows you to change the LED component’s coloration depending on your mood or preferred look. Aesthetic reasons aside, Brembo is also looking to use this technology for more practical applications.

        The brake manufacturer has shown in the concept reveal video that the smartphone app and lights can be linked up to the vehicle itself, allowing the lights to indicate things like brake caliper or vehicle status, whether the bike is locked or unlocked, and more. The video also shows that the lights can be used in conjunction with GPS and the vehicle’s courtesy lights, but in what way wasn’t clearly demonstrated.

        The caliper itself is very futuristic-looking, with a metallic finish and the LED lighting components that make the brakes look like something out of a Tron movie. This cyberpunk-esque brake caliper was made as part of Brembo’s 60th anniversary celebration, hence the sessanta (Italian for the number 60) moniker. In fact, the G Sessanta concept was styled after Brembo’s very first caliper design, making this light-up piece of stopping equipment both a look at the future and a callback to the brand’s past.

        Think this kind of technology would catch on here? We reckon the idea of customizable lights on brakes would be a treat for those who enjoy mods, so expect to see a lot of those around if this concept ever makes it to production.
