I obtained an RC51 radial caliper conversion set from RC51parts:
http://www.rc51parts.com/Product-Radial-Brake-Caliper-Adapters_17.aspx

and it came with OEM regular (2pc) Tokico radial calipers from a 2006 CBR1000RR.

I have the opportunity to get a set of Brembo cast monoblock calipers P4 (34mm) #20.A397.10/20.

I am wondering if upgrading from OEM Tokico radial calipers to Brembo monoblock radial calipers is worth the investment. What are the PROs / CONs ?

The Tokicos are 108mm bolt spacing, so the Brembos will also need to be 108mm as well.
I haven't done this mod, so I can't speak for any problems different calipers may entail.
Those that have done this mod may be able to add more info.

the adapters you bought really only might work with hondas tokico's and IMO they are not the best calipers you can get for this conversion and are not much if any better then the OEMs.

i have used them all and the R1 4 pots work better or their 6 pots even best and they are lighter and also monobloc calipers where the tokico's are not

you are not able to use any narrow band calipers with these brackets either so be sure of what you buy
