Your Ideas requried please

Was chatting to my boss today, as you may or may not know we manufacture PFM's 6 pot radial calipers in our factory http://www.pfmbrakes.com/ and they want to "update the look" of the calipers.... so anyone have any ideas as what would float your boat on an MV?
Some pics of caliper on a Diesel bike here...

Post anything that comes into your heads..... I will pass on to PFM..

Cheers, Juan

Hmmm.... i really dislike the look of the calipers showned on your online catalog but those one on the diesel superbike look way better. (maybe because they're radially mounted?)
I don't know.... i really like the way the new 1098 monobloc brembos look, so there's a start

LOL you guys.... Let me make it clear.... I work for a company who make parts for PFM..... I DO NOT WORK FOR PFM !!!!!..... I can't even get myself a set

They only make the Radial calipers.... no conventional mounts....

Draw away guys!!!!!

Well, if we can't get one, what does that do for us? What about the winning design...does he atleast get a set at cost?
