LUCAS BRAKE DISC, FRONT
Manufacturer details: TRW
Every second counts when you brake!
Quality and know-how from the inventor of the disc brake: In 1952, the British firm Lucas launched the first disc brake system and succeeded in setting the standard for vehicle brakes to this day. The American technology company TRW built Pioneer 1, the first satellite to be launched into space by NASA in 1958. Today, TRW-Lucas is the market leader in Germany for brake pads and steel-braided brake lines. They also produce brake discs, clutch sets and chassis components. Multiple test wins in the trade press are convincing proof that you can rely on safety made by TRW-Lucas.
Professional technical expertise is essential to fit this article. We therefore urge you to have it installed by a motorcycle workshop!
German type approval ("ABE)" allows the accessory concerned to be used on the vehicle models listed in the test report. Here it is the type abbreviation and not the maker's designation that is important for identifying the vehicle. The test report must be kept with the vehicle and shown on request if you are stopped at a roadside check or at the regular safety inspection at the TÜV test centre.
Accessories with ABE type approval do not have to be entered in the vehicle registration documents. To avoid always having to always take the test report with you, you can have a relevant entry made by TÜV (subject to a charge).
If you wish to use an accessory on a vehicle not listed in the type approval, TÜV inspection is necessary. Although ABE type approval confirms the proper installation and safety of the product, it is the inspector who has to decide according to his technical expertise whether it is suitable for use on the vehicle.

What "MOTORRAD" magazine said about the Aprilia RSV mille:
- The Lucas brake discs are superior to the original Aprilia discs.
- Braking power buildup is linear and can be controlled with a light touch; the braking performance is very good.
