A think Dorna doesn't know what "competition" mean. Maybe I should watch superbike more...

Btw, it was dynamometer and wind tunnel which really expensive.

"Does anyone know how a spec ECU will cope with Aprilia V4s, inline fours of at least three types.?" @rick65

Easy. Aftermarket ECUs (like PI, Motec etc.) already can handle from singles to 12 cylinders (both 2 and 4 stroke).

There is a just a sync pulse from crank rotation, this gives position and speed, then the injection/ignition is just mapped to this. Simple.

This is in a 2 week old interview, in it he says he has been talking to Magneti Marelli about producing this, saying that if he can do a bulk orderof ones made to do the job it will help the CRT as developing the ECU is expensive (just look at Forward, Bosch and Edwards). Magnetti Marelli are about the best and none of the CRT bikes have that system, so will be a less of a headache.
However you need someone to set them up and translate what the rider wants.

He also said its not what he wants and not what the manufacturer wants but Dorna are in the entertainment business and he must do what he has to in balancing the racing, developement, economics and entertainment.

Its not a rule, its a way of helping.
