Offering more consistent and predictable braking, the new TwinPower one-piece floating brake rotor offers a traditional look and hassle-free installation on most 2014+ Harley-Davidson motorcycles with five-bolt mounts. The Floating Brake Rotor is priced at $184.95 through the Tucker Powersports dealer network. For more information, read the press release below.
FORT WORTH, Texas – Tucker Powersport’s TwinPower brand has introduced a line of one-piece floating brake rotors that offer a traditional look while delivering the performance benefits of a floating rotor brake setup. The new TwinPower units are a perfect replacement for Harley-Davidson models equipped with original equipment floating rotors.
A floating rotor has the ability to conform to the brake pads giving maximum rotor-to-pad contact. Floating motorcycle brake rotors lead to more consistent and predictable braking. The new TwinPower rotors use special mounting hardware which allows the rotors to “float” for improved braking performance.
TwinPower rotors are known to be some of the highest quality products available and gives a builder or customizer the look of a traditional brake rotor. The proprietary, stainless steel friction surface is precision double-disc ground and heat treated, while the edges are laser cut rather than stamped. All machining is done to a tolerance of +/- .004 inch with high-tech CNC equipment.
The new rotors are developed for TwinPower by engineers who specialize in braking products and are manufactured in Spain. Installation is hassle-free using new heavy duty “floater” hardware that is included in the kit. It’s a direct bolt-on using stock or aftermarket calipers and will fit most 2014 and later Harley-Davidson models with five-bolt mounts.
