The software rule in the spec ECU was introduced to pacify the manufacturers, they asked for 5 engines to justify going racing, Dorna wanted spec ECU to so the teams could get a good deal. The factories also want to continue to develope their own software, hardware is not important but the I/O of that is, and this will limit how much sofware can be written, if you don't have an encoder to tell you how far over the bike is leaning, you cannot guess it, and it goes deeper than that. Take the factories out of racing, another technological house will replace them and the one who does it best will win. THATS WHAT GP is about, F1 is the same the only thing that has changed there spec ECU but then add on things like DRS and Kers, and maufacturer the racing with tyre degredation. Still you get half cars finishing 3 laps down and that is OK? BSB are able to do this because this is what SBK's is supposed to be about, getting the best out of what you get over the counter.
