Since the electric bike needs no clutch, the logical choice was to mount both brake master cylinders on the handlebar instead of choosing the standard arrangement on motorcycles. This means it is no longer necessary for the rider to use his foot to initiate a drift. The latest Formula brake system features a radial 4-piston front caliper on a 260 mm Wave brake disc as well as a 2-piston rear caliper on a matching 230 mm rear Wave brake disc. New rear brake pads and piston diameters have been reduced by 2 mm in the rear and, combined with a 1 mm increase in front disc thickness, result in an enhanced brake feel for even better control. The new braided front brake hose has an extra tube with an integrated channel to protect the speedometer cable.
