    They need to do something revolutionary like turbo charging, in this category to excite people about these bikes. A micro electrically run turbo charger will bring power to this category without significantly increasing fuel consumption and busting the treasury. This will be like what Ecoboost did to Ford and the followers will try to catch up for rest of their life.
