    Will have to find out myself when the time comes.

    Looks like it's a different story from Brembo wrt LC brake pads. They offer a range of four different applications, Racing, Performance, Premium & Genuine.
    In the Genuine range, there are two choices, Brembo suggest Genuine - Sinter ( 84),  Product code: 07BB38.84 and quote.

    "Selected by motorcycle manufacturers, this is the sintered material developed by Brembo as OEM equipment.
    The cases where the catalogue code corresponds exactly to the material used on the specific application are highlighted in the catalogues you will find at your local dealer."


    In this case, the differential in cost between BMW OEM & Brembo Genuine is not so great.

      Bike Torque Racing are the sole UK distributor for Brembo aftermarket products.

      Genuine

      The original replacement part for Brembo calipers.


      Selecting these pads, you buy exactly the same OE material as used by the motorcycle manufacturer and developed for a particular application, according to the most stringent criteria. Pads can be of sintered or carbon ceramic material.

          It's just got to be a lot more sensible to get them off your dealers shelf. And it would seem at nearly the same price, maybe even a bit less with some discount.

                  But you have pointed out as have others they are constructed differently.    Just like the callipers, genuine Brembo but specific to BMW.
                  In my eyes brakes are the most critical item on the bike to keep you clear of disaster.  Mine will stay exactly as they were when it came out of its crate.

                    For the 2012 TC RT, Brembo (Official Website) only offer pads from the Performance & Premium ranges, their "suggested" replacement is Road - SA, Product code: 07BB26.SA.

                    "This is a sintered compound, specific for front application, characterised by excellent efficiency in all conditions of use.
                    It therefore represents an ideal alternative to original brake pads, both when cold and when hot."


                    For the 2017 LC RT, Brembo offer pads from Racing, Performance, Premium & Genuine ranges.
                    In the Genuine range, there are two options, Brembo "suggest" Genuine - Sinter ( 84 ),  Product code: 07BB38.84.

                    "Selected by motorcycle manufacturers, this is the sintered material developed by Brembo as OEM equipment.
                    The cases where the catalogue code corresponds exactly to the material used on the specific application are highlighted in the catalogues you will find at your local dealer."


                    Based on the above, for my TC, I'll stick to the BMW OEM pads, an equivalent replacement is not available.

                    However, if it were an LC, then the Brembo "Genuine" range would seem to be the same as BMW OEM pads in construction.

                    If in any doubt, Bike Torque Racing the sole UK importer, should be able to confirm things.

                      And BMW UK of course. Suspect they don't get them from Bike Torque Racing.

                        Different story on the back.

                        For the rear on an LC, the BMW OEM pads, part no. 34218554424 are £72.54.

                        From the Brembo "Genuine" range, they suggest Product code: 07BB03.59 at £35.61.

                          Exactly??
                          Then I suppose you have kept your bike in the crater? because even BMW replace parts afterwards (and for various reasons, new supplier, cheaper? /better? /no longer available …..) ;);)

                            Of course they do but they are still what is supposed to be fitted as opposed to recommended by a third party.

                              If the part no. has changed, does this suggest that the supplier has too?

                                Not necessarily and not in this case.  Could be just a change in construction or material.
