MotoGP edging closer to controlled ECU

Plans for MotoGP to switch to a controlled engine management system in 2014 have taken a big step closer today after it was confirmed that Magneti Marelli will make an ECU available to all teams from next season onwards. Dorna has signed a four-year deal with the Italian-based specialist to supply a highly sophisticated ECU that a Dorna statement said would...

Anything that brings the bikes closer together on race day is a good thing. I think Honda know this and are just posturing.

Honda

What Honda want is to build the best bike and win races. That is the idea of the premier class.

.....if Rossi couldn't hack it anymore he'd do a "casey" and runaway long before the natural end of his career.

Technology

So Honda are upset because they won’t be able to develop their own anti-wheelie and tc systems.  So when might we see a new Blade with this technology i.e. one capable of competing with the likes of the S1000rr, RSV4 & ZX10R.  Not everyone can afford 40k for a RSV road bike.

Tris123.....

I am sure the Big H could of put TC and anti wheelie onto their Blade years ago, but decided a smoother engine, a more pure ride was the better option. I have a Blade and along with the bike press, agree that it is the best road ride bike out there. I've riden lots of different bikes (owned and demo'd) and nothing comes close on the road. How much full throttle do you actually use on your bike (if its a thou) on the road? Hardly ever I guess and therefore TC is a gimmick. How many racing starts do you do away from the traffic lights? Anti wheelie needed? I don't think so. Since when does a road bike need all of that crap? It's brilliant for the track and if you race a bike, buy a race bike. There is far to much technology being thrown onto bikes these days and although brilliant technology and a real progress is being made, we are going against what motorcycling is all about. No one buys a bike because they are safe and practical. We buy bikes because they are raw, fast, stupid, loud and can spit you off at the blink of an eye. It's like owning an elephant, stupid but also wonderful!

Which RSV model is that much? I'm buying one for next season and the best my money can buy is an RSV4 APRC all the toys in the box15,900 ontr.

An extra three litres of fuel on board and a lot of the electronics wouldn't be needed. It's a dangerous sport Carmello, stop trying to sanitise it just because someone happens to go to the great beyond. We all end up there sooner or later, and to be honest the danger is a great deal of what makes it interesting.

Get it right Steve?

"I think we have to try it and to see if we still have the same security on the bike. Because now we avoid a lot of crashes, especially highsides, and maybe with the standard electronics the bike is a bit more dangerous. Because now, the bikes are more powerful, we have more than 250 horsepower, so we have to be careful of these things." - Lorenzo yesterday, talking about the new control ECU.

Carmelo is trying to de-sanitise and take away all the poxy rider aids matey.
