It doesn't come in until 2014. That's why its thought the bike won't come out until 2013. Existing bikes don't have to comply though so BMW could delay if they wanted or needed to. So long as they didn't change anything on the twin cam and need type approval they could keep it till either 2016 or 2018 can't remember which. This applies to all manufacturers by the way HD Ducati et all. If their existing aircooled engines aren't clean enough they will disappear as well. It's the end of an era and good ridens to it as far as I am concerned.
