Just a small note here, as Lyndon Poskitt confirmed in a RalyRaidio call-in, KTM have already started on their next generation Rallye bike, and it is confirmed to have EFI, as EU laws state that all plated motorcycles must have EFi after 2015 (or '17, don't remember). But fuel restrictions in an endurance off road race? Not sure, as pilots always carry extra fuel to make up for navigation mistakes. I think restricting fuel on a race like the Dakar will never happen, it's just that to pass scrutineering you will probably need a "green" sticker or some sort of documentation that the original bike/engine conforms to road - legal emissions / specs etc
