They say "Monoblocks" on the Standard. That suggests M4s. The disc is also 10mm smaller up front on the standard. They didn't leave the rear brake alone. I'm sure it's been redesigned and...

I agree, But I think the camo paint has a lot to do with that and I also think we're not seeing the finished bike in these photos. I'll wait and make that decision when we see one in real livery.
