Euro 5 has been mandatory in heavy duty engines (i.e trucks) since the mid 2000's so I don't think it's going to affect motorcycling hugely.

Your right the rumour of the RVF has ben going for some time. Since before the road going RCV bike even. When i heard the rumours of them building an RCV, a new V4 superbike and updating the CBR all happening in sucsession of one another with the publicised decline in sports bike sales, it sounded unrealistic.

Id love to see an new RVF but at a price where its affordable and sold in large numbers.

There looks to be a special model of the CBR being released and sold in limited numbers to meet homologation requirements for SBK along with race kits.
