New, lighter wheels have angled spokes that are said to mitigate external shocks, and the Bridgestone BT-016 tires are variants specific to the GSX-R. The front discs are now 5.0mm thick (versus 5.5mm) and have more buttons than previously (12 versus eight). The calipers' trailing pistons shrink from 34mm in diameter to 32mm, and the radial-pump master cylinder's piston is also smaller (17.5mm as opposed to 19mm) to increase the effective force.
