    "With ever-tightening emissions regulations, the era of air-cooled engines is drawing to a close. Euro 5 standards, which go into effect on January 1, 2020, further reduce limits for carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides, and adapting air-cooled engines to meet these standards will become increasingly difficult."

    Maybe Yamaha will go back to liquid cooled v4 ?

    You two lop eared varmints had the same thoughts as I,,, makes one wonder if Mom Yam's fall back to the old school flat tappet, push rodded, air cooled SVTC was a short term plan right from the onset,,,, or is the new Venture built compliant to the new standards/with the new standards in mind and found a way to overcome the ills that air cooled bikes may have with maintaining compliance... It will really be interesting to see how it all plays out,,,, same for HD..
    Definitely a GOOD read Leo!! It does show that Polaris is in it for the long haul IMHO,, Polaris must be doing OK with their Indian line sales wise!!! Those dyno numbers on this new "108" sound worthy, cant wait to see how they run! I know that the 1200cc HD V-Rod (not the smaller 1000cc 1st one) my buddy had ran pretty good and could almost keep up with my 85 V-Max thru the gears. Maybe HD will fall back on the water cooled V-Rod motor and adapted it into a touring scoot...
    Really interesting,, THANKS LEO FOR POSTING THIS!

    Looks like Polaris is putting their new "108" in a fixed fairing bagger to start with (unless my eyes are deceiving me,, geezer eyes can do that ya know )...
    Be wayyyyyyy cool if my favorite bike tester/reporter of all time,, my dear brother VentureFar ,, could get his hands on one when they are released and do one of his Ultimate reports for us!!!!

    I also like the bike itself. The engine appears to have a lot of potential. One more thing to check out this winter.

    No pass Euro standards means it is a United States bike only.

    Good catch brother and thanks for the reminder!! In the spirit of bike chit chat and in the love of such,,,, I now can't help but wonder if the SVTC was/is built for the U.S. market,,, does that extend to the Canadian market too or is Canada gonna follow the Euro specs/regulation starting in January?? Reports from those above the northern border were reporting sell-out status of the SVTC right from the get go, seems like Mom Yam would find a way around the Euro regs instead of losing that market if Canada is following Euro specs..

    Think "North American" market, Canada included. By 2022 Canada may be untouchable due to emission standards. Then the SVTC will be fer sure a USA bike only.

    ,, I wonder if the Big Block 1700cc V-Max motor tuned down to 175 horse and stuffed into a touring bike configuration could be made to comply with Euro regs ... You know, something that no other manufacturer could even come close to competing with ..
