08 brake rotor questions

Hey all. Just picked up an 08 with lots of goodies. Some of which the owner didnít know the previous owner had done. The one that puzzles me is the NG front brake discs. They arenít a common upgrade, and only available in Europe. Any insight? I donít see a reason to spend $500 on brake discs if the stock ones are plenty good. Thanks

NG is a company out of Barcelona Spain. I have a set of their rotors and they have been good on the street or for track days. I decided to give them a try when I saw that they were being used by some Moto2 teams.

I haven’t pulled the calipers yet to see what they are. Just wondered if anyone else had used them etc.
