2010 front brake calipers work on other gens?

Sat on a '10 10R at Dealership other day. The front brakes were excellent. No extended long pull like my 07. There was only a quarter inch pull maybe til the pads were on rotor tightly. I know the bike has revised forks to go along with the new front brakes. Does anyone know if the calipers will fit/work on the other gens? Preferably the 06-07 gen2 10R. The feel of the 2010 10R brakes was impressive.
On a side note, the bikes rake is nice aswell. Agressive.

3rd gen brakes are on point thats for sure, and i believe the calipers should bolt right up correct? same 310mm rotors?

Thanks. I'll be keeping an eye out for used 2010 calipers for sure.

ZX-14 calipers/galfer lines fixed mine. First panic brake almost threw myself over the handle grips.

I was on a friends 07 a few days ago and the brakes felt horrible. I put 07 CBR1000rr calipers on my 1st gen with galfer lines, and they're amazing. Cheap too, way less expensive than ZX14 brakes.
