brake pads

I just installed new OEM brake pads on my k1200r and noticed the new pads had a bevel on both the leading and trailing sides of the front pads. Has anybody else seen this? I ask because both the old and new pads have the same part number but the old pads did not have this beveled design.

Let me know what y'all think.

Pretty standard design on pads, my K12RS is the same way. Can't remember if the stock pads had it, but all the various OEM and other pads have had them to varying degrees. The stock pads on my K13S have them.
