Generator part of Shimano gen hubs has got wider?

Postby SA_SA_SA » 13 Oct 2018, 9:50pm

I noticed that the generator section of the more expensive Shimano Generator hubs has got much wider (ie almost full width of hub just like the cheaper 3x3x ones):

is the reason electrical efficiency or structural strength or just saving money?
