Hi all , what's the position with the new E10 ( 10% ethanol) petrol in the UK , can it be used on a fx650 vigor 2001? If I use it will it damage the carb , engine.

Or will I have to use the E5 super unleaded higher octane which is more expensive ? Any thoughts welcome .

I'd just use it. The worst case scenario is accelerated ageing of the fuel pipe and maybe the carb diaphragm fails after a few years.
The main thing is not to let it sit for long with E10, even my fuel injected bikes don't like being stood for more than a couple of weeks with E5 - and E10 will be twice (literally) as bad.
