Italian brake systems manufacturer Brembo S.p.A. signed a deal to supply a brake system to Harley-Davidson Inc.
Published reports citing sources within the company say the deal will probably contribute less than EUR10 million in its first year.
Financial details weren’t disclosed. Brembo says the deal is worth several million dollars annually. However, Paolo Magri, director of Brembo’s motorcycle business unit, said the company hopes to expand the partnership.
Brembo, headed by Alberto Bombassei, already cooperates with Harley-Davidson’s Buell unit. The company also provides braking product for two-wheeler brands Ducati, Aprilia, Piaggio and Yamaha, and auto brands BMW, Porsche, Ferrari and Honda.
