Euro 5 emissions regulations are set for introduction around 2020. These new regulations present very significant challenges for motorcycle manufacturers in terms of maintaining engine performance, brand attributes (aesthetics and sound quality) and minimizing add-on cost.

Ricardo was contracted to develop appropriate Euro 5 emissions-control technology on a high-performance motorcycle engine, via a structured programme of benchmarking, strategy identification and adoption of appropriate technology, some read across from the automotive sector, to provide a modified engine that meets the requirements of Euro 5 as well as customer expectations (performance, driveability etc.).
