I just realized last week that this is happening in general. Manufs won't be allowed run the engines "hard" since the upper band has more emissions. So they have to oversize and not use the full potential. I think this is basically what vw gave the finger too, now their sky is falling.

Damn Europeans. Euro4 is a bunch of crap. It's sad to see manufacturers have to limit the potential of their bikes and completely redesign them for something that is completely unncessary. It's a perfect example of government regulations runamok.

The same thing is happening with passenger cars. Unfortunately, bikes don't have the luxury of just turbocharging everything to make up for the change in displacement/emissions.

Look at Mercedes-AMG cars as one example. Everything is being downsized and turbocharged....but they keep making more power. They don't even make a naturally aspirated AMG car anymore.

Turbocharging on bikes is too complicated and adds too much weight.

I have virtually transformed the looks of my 2009 STR I bought this time (spring 2015) last year. Bike looks far from the stock look and I love what I have done. I don't plan on ever getting rid of it.

No need to sell something that beautiful that rides as near perfect.
