The lesser known of the schism between Dorna and regarding Ducati being in the Open category of the now multi-leveled class is the software used by the teams, or specifically the software is using on their Open

The ECU and software used by the Open is supplied by Dorna as a control Open teams are using a dumbed-down version of Magneti-Marelli Nicky Hayden said the supplied at the first Sepang to the Open teams had only one control setting, whereas known that factory teams can program wheelie corner by corner.

As per the new MotoGP Factory teams have the to write their own code for the whereas Open teams to use the software supplied by Dorna.

Ducati’s progress at the second test raised eyebrows the globe because Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso the test third-fastest, just a off the times set by Honda rider Pedrosa and Yamaha pilot Rossi. This was an amazing forward. What’s more, factory bikes were almost immediately when switched to the Open configuration.

Honda’s perspective if an Open can write or use their own software what is the difference between an and Factory MotoGP bike?

An story has circulated since the Sepang test which that Honda had their look at the coding update to the Open teams at Sepang 2 and telltale signs that the software had been in part by Ducati, or was simply Ducati’s software re-purposed for the 2014 MotoGP bikes.

The rules are clear: Factory may write their own software. teams must use the software as by Dorna. That Ducati had to choose the Open class its supposedly weaker software but may in be using software written by was more than Honda take.

From Honda’s if an Open team can use their own then what is the difference an Open and Factory MotoGP

Clearly the Open electronics not as crude as some expected to be. And there is much to fear a supposedly Open configuration running on its own software—especially one that has to more fuel and softer than the factory bikes.

This was either brilliant interpretation or smelled like collusion between Dorna and depending on who you talked to. The sense Dorna would be the unmovable of justice when it came to the software crumbled quickly. how different are Factory and Open if teams can write their own

Rivals teams were that Ducati’s software was the accepted version given to Open teams.

Ducati’s is pinned by their steadfast that they simply racing by the rules provided in the and are updating software in the process was agreed upon by all the teams.

Ducati’s response is that in all between MSMA members and it was agreed that the Open would be continually developed. And any team could ask for updates, but if the were not of use to all teams, then the applying for the changes would the costs of the new code.

The Factory and designations of the MotoGP class initially well-defined, but in practice has quickly become a rat’s of rulebook interpretation. The situation has one manufacturer livid.

Honda was to produce a MotoGP racer for a set one that would be sold to teams for an affordable price, they did with the RCV1000R. is the only Open bike produced specifically for the class a class.

Yamaha didn’t produce so a customer M1 as it did basically hand M1 engines and other components to the team—those bikes left the test faster than the satellite Tech 3 Yamahas.

chose Open for their bikes and in just a matter of became the most feared on the MotoGP grid. This when rival teams Ducati’s lap times from the Sepang test and calculated that bike might be of in a race with more and a softer tire, not to mention development time during the

Yesterday’s development, that will now have three ultra-fan-confusing classifications of machinery in the class, and that the newest Factory 2, will have rules than Open be enough to appease Honda and off a major confrontation between and the world’s largest motorcycle If not, Honda and Dorna are on a course in MotoGP.

In 1967 Honda walked out of Prix motorcycle racing of a conflict with the FIM over regulations. They didn’t until late 1979.
