So, we will know very soon if BMW did something about the motorcar electronics they were using on the bikes the last couple of years. Really want them to do well. I have faith in Melandri, the electronics and Haslam, not so much.

I have talked to marco and looks like the new electronic will not come, expecially because they have no time and they dont want to do like in the past years where every times they were changing 1000 things and messing up. marco wants to change things 1 by 1 and test it. and also he said the electronic package is not so bad, but it needs to be setted up in a better way... about the marelli they will probably wait for the crt to develop it for bmw engine spec and then maybe later on try it

Fabbio - some truth in what you say there.
Edwards has said they don't know which way the CRT team will go Marelli or Bosch, and that the SBK teams are waiting on what they decide and develope. He said he told the Bosch guy if he hears him mention "what we do in cars" again he will boot him out the garage.
Hmm so there is no point to CRT! BMW are benefitting already as are WSB. SO now we see the point of Aprilia entering in a sideways fashion and Kawasaki.

@Fabbio and @Mick - thanks for the informative posts - it is nice to come on here and learn extra details.

By the way - is BMW Italia using Marelli? If so that info will be feeding in to the factory team.
