Encouraging article about ECU updates

This article was published today on motorcycle.com. It discusses MV's recent efforts to revise the ECU mapping on its bikes. It is nice to see the company working to resolve this problem:

From the linked article:
"According Rob Keith, Managing Director for MV Agusta USA, after importing only 28 bikes in 2011, the company brought over 400 last year and is on track to double that to 800 units for 2013"

I've gotten the impression on this forum that USA was a small market for MV, but I had no idea it was that small: 28 bikes in 2011?? Interesting read - they definitely seem to have a pretty small presence in the USA.

They only talk about the ELDOR equipped bikes (F3, B3, and 2013 F4). No word about the bikes with the Magneti Marelli ECU.

I'm happy I had my Brutie dynoed & mapped - imho no chance to get the older ECUs remapped in a proper way from Varese......

I motori sono come le donne, bisogna saperli toccare nelle parti piu' sensibili.......

I don't see mv doing much to update mapping on the magnetti ecu bikes, Probably just as well to go the path you took.

Maybe I missed something, but how is this different to getting a new fuel map?

If it's the same then what's going to "change" for the F3 on the 10th of September (as per the article)?

I've been getting new fuel maps for my F3 since I got the bike June last year so why the media buzz about it now? Or did I miss something...

Oh and does the F3 have launch control?

I still see many magazines that put that and the lean sensor on the bikes features, but I'm not sure the bike has it?

Lean sensor is a safety device that cuts the motor in the event of a crash.

Does it interface with the traction control?

Are you saying the lean sensor cuts off power if you have gone over a certain lean angle?wouldnt that be more dangerous as the rear shock will rebound and then drift the bike wide as there is no power to the rear wheel ?

The bike has to be horizontal for the switch to work. i.e. crashed.
I may be wrong, but I don't think it is like the RSV4 which alters the TC when a certain angle of lean is achieved.
