The embodiment provides a vehicle control unit including a road surface friction coefficient estimation module. The road surface friction coefficient estimation module estimates a road surface friction coefficient based on a parameter other than a body speed. The vehicle control unit further includes first and second torque increment setting modules. The first second torque increment setting module sets an initial value of a torque increment to be used in the torque control when a start thereof is detected. The initial value of the torque increment is set based on the road surface friction coefficient. The second torque increment setting module sets a current value of the torque increment after the initial value has been set. The current value of the torque increment is set based on the previous value thereof and a change in the slip amount.

Cup seals are fitted to a cylinder hole of a hydraulic pressure master cylinder. A plunger is movably inserted into the cylinder hole via the cup seals. A fluid chamber is formed on an outer circumferential side of the cylinder hole and between the cup seals so as to communicate with a fluid storage chamber through a fluid communication hole. The plunger is formed in a cylindrical shape having a bottom and provided with a recess portion opening toward a bottom portion of the cylinder hole. A hydraulic pressure chamber is defined between the recess portion and the bottom portion. Plural communication ports are formed in a circumferential wall of the recess portion, to penetrate the circumferential wall. When the plunger is in an initial position and is in a non-operating state, the communication ports connect the hydraulic pressure chamber and the fluid chamber.

One embodiment of the present invention provides a caliper body including an acting portion having a cylinder bore; a union boss portion having a union hole; and a bleeder boss portion having a bleeder hole. The union boss portion is formed at a central portion of a side surface of the acting portion in a circumferential direction of a disc brake rotor, the side surface being opposite to a side surface facing the disc brake rotor. The bleeder boss portion extends from an outer circumferential side of the bottom wall of the cylinder bore to the union boss portion. The union boss portion and the bleeder boss portion form a continuous projecting portion such that the union boss portion projects further outwards than the bleeder boss portion.

One embodiment of the present invention provides a brake hydraulic pressure generating device, including: a master cylinder, a stroke simulator and an on/off valve. The on/off valve opens/closes a branch hydraulic pressure passage, which branches from a main hydraulic pressure passage. The on/off valve includes a first valve mechanism including a first valve portion and a first valve seat, and a second valve mechanism including a second valve portion and a second valve seat. The first valve seat is formed in the second valve portion. A pressure receiving area in which brake hydraulic pressure acting from the stroke simulator side is received is set to be higher in the second valve portion than in the first valve portion.

One embodiment provides a vehicle disc brake, including a caliper body, a caliper bracket, a pair of friction pads and pad retainers. Lengths of a part of reacting claws of the caliper body are set so that distal end portions thereof are disposed further radially outwards in a radial direction of a disc brake rotor than inward pieces of retainer portions of pad retainers. And, distal end portions of the inward pieces are brought into abutment with lug pieces of the friction pads in a position which lies further inwards of the caliper body than circumferential end faces of these reacting claws.
