Question radial brake setup

riders,

i just saw a sneak peek of the 2003 zx-6r. radial brakes? what is that about and whats the advantage over the regular setup?
if its soo effective, how come manufacturers didnt use em before?

The radial mounting setup is noticeably stiffer under braking, providing better feedback and control. Or so I'm told, anyhow. Trouble is, the parts are insanely expensive...EMA USA sells 'em, look around their site for an idea.
