Makino is a leading provider of a diverse range of two-wheeler products, catering to both the aftermarket and original equipment (OE) segments. With a strong focus on quality and innovation, Makino manufactures a wide selection of brake components designed to meet the demands of various motorcycles, ranging from 50cc to 350cc, including the iconic 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet.

Makino’s product portfolio encompasses a comprehensive assortment of brake shoes, with options available in both asbestos and non-asbestos materials. Its brake shoe kits come with springs, making them readily available for aftermarket customers. Right from 50 cc up to 250cc motorcycles, Makino offers brake shoe solutions based on customer needs.

P.C. Sudarsan, RSM – Sales & Marketing, Makino Automotive, says, “In addition to brake shoes, we offer a full range of disc pads, including semi-metallic non-asbestos options suitable for OE applications as well as the aftermarket. Our commitment to excellence extends to clutch plates as well. Alongside standard clutch plates, we also manufacture fibro clutch plates that are designed particularly for motorcycles in 150+ cc range. Makino holds the distinction of being the first manufacturer of fibro clutch plates in India and we are also one of the largest manufacturers of Inner Clutch Assembly (ICA).”

He adds, “We also make Centrifuge Clutch Assembly (CCA) which is Makino’s proprietary offering, fully assembled in India, and includes components suitable for Honda Activa and other gearless vehicles in the OE and aftermarket segments. We go the extra mile to provide customers with a plug-and-play solution, significantly reducing installation time for mechanics.”

Makino’s commitment to innovation extends beyond conventional motorcycles. The innovative supplier has introduced e-rickshaw brake shoes earlier this year, made from high-quality rubber and leather materials. The company also manufactures and supplies leather OE components for housing and roller assemblies.
