2020 New Motorbikes and Scooters
Euro 5 is the big thing for 2020 so we're likely to see lots of exhaust and fuelling changes to sneak older designs past the new regs. These will mostly involve additional catalytic converters and "enhanced" sound profiles.
Many models will see new engines with Variable Valve Technology (VVT), which has already debuted on a number of key 2019 models and ABS systems now need to be road legal when used on a track.
Apart from Euro 5 compliance there is likely to be a continued roll out of more ride modes, traction control, cornering ABS, cornering lights and shiny colour TFT consoles.
