Entirely fair point.
They can run the BSB spec at no extra cost, no problem.
It seems they want to gain an unfair advantage running superior electronics which is hard to justify.
Glad to see that the TT organisers are sticking to their guns.

I thought that the original argument was that both the Motec and the Yam Kit were inferior to the Kit from other manufacturers leaving them disadvantaged either way.

A fairer, simpler and cheaper approach would have been no change 2014 with motec in 2015 skipping this in between stage of allowing both Kit and Motec in 2014.

I bet some big budget teams are buying Kit purely for an advantage in 2014, then buying Motec for 2015.

all the top teams already have Motec so why don't they all run them? Yamaha have already said if all run Motec they will be there!!

A BSB Bike and a TT Bike are 2 totally different Animals and we should not lose sight of this, BSB not designed to run at High Revs for sustained periods as is TT.

If Marelli gives them an Unfair Advantage why have they not won at TT as yet? what they don't want is to be further penalised which is what Motec option would be at a £30,000 cost.

you pay money to make your bike go quicker!!! who in there right mind pays Money to make there Bike go Slower???

Its getting more and more like F1 with all the Politics now, Canging MOTOGP rules to get Marquez on a Prototype as a rookie when before no rookies were allowed, And now all this squbbling over the TT !!!
If this control ECU works then it must be fair for all,
Have a nice day time i stopped watching this Sport and took up Fishing i think!
