Gen5 OEM Brake lines

So I've seen quite a number of Moto America and other race Gen5s with OEM brake lines still in place. Or so it seemed. Looking at the lines themselves, it does seem like they're steel braided. Am I seeing things or Kawasaki has finally managed to put a set of decent OEM brake lines on the bike?
