The nineties were full of bikes that looked the same and everyone thought it couldn't get any better. Then, BOOM. The CBR900RR comes out and we see a movement to liter bikes and an amazing improvement in bike technology. They will continue to change and for the better. (Except for maybe looks as that is highly objective.)

What is limited the design of engines today are the rules imposed by the racing games. The companies are making engine designs that meet the rules, and then passing the tech down to the street bike.

…and due to the economy, the rules are continuously being tightened to restrict new development in favor of cost savings.
I think the economy and slow sales are creating a false plateau in development. When the big news for 2013 is new headlights on a six year old bike, things are going to feel like they are peaking. Now the big four is somewhat stuck in a loop, why buy a new bike that looks and rides exactly like this 4 year old used bike for half the cost, but the lack of new bike sales is slowing new model development.
