WOW... just another example of why electronics should be decreased. I am not saying that with less electronics that the Ducati would be up front , but this wouldn't have happened. Or was it that Rossi needed to finish in front of his team mate at some point this year for his confidence... Amazing how politics can get in the way... Anyway, I truely hope that ducati can get it together and put the hurt on the other manufactures. Getting tired of watching another Aussie run away with thing. I really hope we aren't in for another Doohan show.

I find it interesting that all this crap is banned in bsb, but they hav had a lot less accidents than wsb and motogp. Me thinks the riders are better off without them, and safer.

Why does the bike need to know where it is, surly the rider knows.
The idea of letting the bike control throttle etc is against all my understanding of bike racing.
What next, will Honda be using there little white robot next, paint it up to look like Stoner, no one will tell the difference.

This is mainly for "engine management", ie. fuel consumption/power delivery.

I say give them 5 more liters and ban ALL electronics. If the power scares you, then roll off.
