What advantage do Wave rotors have over regular rotors? Pardon the noob question.

Does it have something to do with cooling? And they they really have an advantage?

Im not sure if you've ever touched your caliper or rotor after a moto or a ride, but they are hot. Metal expands when it gets hot and with a design of a wave on the exterior and on the inside, allow it to get hot and when it cools down, stay flat. Thus never/taking longer to warp/ware out.

Also, saving a bit of weight can help with rotational mass and letting you brake later giving you an advantage over someone who is using a typical rotor setup.
