Default GXP sway bars

From a Motor Trend article about the GXP found here: http://www.motortrend.com/features/n...ews031103_gxp/

"Performance-tuned DeCarbon monotube dampeners, progressive spring rates and large diameter (30-mm front, 22-mm rear) stabilizer bars allow the Bonneville GXP to provide both excellent driver feedback and a smooth, compliant ride."

30mm front and 22mm rear sway bars don't sound very "large diameter" -- Damemorder posted (here: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=16864 ) that the SSEi sways were 43mm front and rear. Am I missing something?
