The Fuel penalty for factories using their own ECUs appears excessive. I am surprised that Honda and Yamaha agreed to such a reduction in fuel allowance AND to 5 engines versus twelve engines per season. I have previously suggested that by limiting the number of sensors per bike ( and thereby reducing the parameters that ECU's can control ) would be a far more effective method of controlling costs and reducing the technology gap between the various teams. I can't see any downsides to this solution- I wonder if Dorna and the factories have considered this ?
