(cafetheology.org) – Since the 2009 season, BMW is sending the S1000RR to the Superbike World Championship. It is still unclear whether BMW will retain the WSBK in the coming season. And with a view to the 2019 season, which is likely to be the debut of unit electronics, the uncertainty is even greater. BMW has already declared to withdraw from the series, development work on the electronics should not be possible in the future. However, with regard to the performance of the S1000RR, a change to a uniform electronics could even be an advantage. Milwaukee-Teammanager Mick Shanley worked with BMW last season and knows the way Munich works well. Shanley thinks that the S1000RR would be more competitive with the electronics than with the BMW's own electronics. "BMW is using the Bosch ECU of the serial engine, which is probably the biggest problem they have, which is quite restrictive and not particularly advanced "Kaasaki and Ducati are using high-end solutions from Magneti Marelli," Shanley said in a conversation with cafetheology.org. "Electronic electronics: blessing Instead of curse?

"BMW's electronics are not at this level," notes the Milwaukee-Teammanager, who can not properly understand BMW's strategy: "A single ECU could be an advantage for BMW in terms of competition, but they have their own philosophy in the market Moment. "Does the Milwaukee manager think that BMW is realizing the threat and leaving the WSBK when a unit ECU is required in 2019? "I think it's important to be able to use the motorcycle in the World Cup, but I hope they do not leave the WSBK "The more manufacturers we have in the series, the better it is for everyone," emphasizes Shanley, who last winter of "We had a great relationship with BMW, but last year many things were expressed by the riders, but the team and BMW got along very well, so we had to get to know each other and familiarize ourselves with the respective working methods But we ended the season with a good relationship, "he points out.

The low interest to operate motorsport on a world-class level surpasses the image of the superbike, which is extremely powerful in the series. "I think the employees of the BMW Motorrad department would like to contribute more to the factory, but I can also understand the reasons why they use the engine control used in the production engine, for example "It was very interesting to be working on the chassis and driving the development, and at the same time it was a bit frustrating because you wanted to be successful," says the Milwaukee-Teammanager, "We were in Munich and visited the plant, the resources are incredible, we knew they had the opportunity to be successful."
