Like I said in the other thread about the Gen 5, I doubt it will be a ground up re-design. They already have a platform that is super competive so no need to change it at the moment. I think they will make changes similar to the BMW. They will probably revise the cylinder head for more power/torque, probably tweak the exhaust for the same. Expand the traction control system with more levels of intervention, maybe more sensors for slide and wheelie controls, they will probably outfit it with upgraded abs, maybe the "cornering" abs like on the ducati with user adjustable setting and an off position. A quick shifter is all but guaranteed. Some geometry tweaks will probably happen, and maybe a bit of an update to the Guage cluster. That's about what I see happening.
