SILMAR8A9S plug Socket Size?

Well it appears that these plugs SILMAR8A9S are so new they aren't listed on the NGK site. Anyone know what socket size they are if they need a special thin wall wrench? What MM?

I am trying to find out if there is an equivalent to these. I wonder why bike manufacturers keep coming up with new exotic spark plugs. They are nothing special (except in price) if they are supposed to be replaced at 48k kms. Iridium plugs would last at least twice as long...
