Road America was alive with the sound of bikes this past weekend as MotoAmerica Superbike Weekend attendees and racers descended on the iconic racetrack in Plymouth, WI, not far from Hayes’ global headquarters. In the flurry of motorcycles, there were a few calipers that stood out.
Hayes Powersports sponsored teams Aftercare Hayes Scheibe Racing and Suburban Harley were both sporting jewel-toned REFLX 32 calipers. Ashton Yates of Scheibe races in the MotoAmerica Superbike series, led by industry veteran and team owner Steve Scheibe. Ashton and Scheibe had a solid points performance and finished in sixth, his best finish of the season on the team’s BMW S 1000 RR. The BMW featured a magenta Hayes REFLX 32. Across the pits, Suburban Harley’s line up of motorcycles also featured eye-catching, jewel toned REFLX 32s, accented against their Harley orange bikes. Racer Benny Carlson, #45, and crew chief Joe Houpt were in the pits when Hayes stopped by and posed with Hayes Performance Systems CEO Phil Malliet. Benny’s feedback about brake performance was simple: REFLX 32 has amazing performance. Even pad wear, superior feedback, and incredible, precise response.
