So Kawasaki is putting a launch control button on their 2012 450's. It remaps the engine to reduce wheel slip for the first two gears, until you shift into third. Once you click into third gear, it shuts off completely, even if you go back down to first and second. From what I have read, it is now ridiculously easy to start with them. I could deal with the electric start button on the newer KTM's, but this I am not a fan of... At the pro level, if they really want to use launch control fine, but I mean the best part about local mx races is the chance that at any given day, you can pull a 'butter finger holeshot'. Not everyone can afford a brand new bike, as I'm sure the other OEM's will create their own launch control and by 2013, every 4 stroke will have it, creating an even larger disparity among those who can't afford a new bike every year, or even three years. I love watching riders hang on for dear life at the start, and seeing who has the best throttle control. The start is one of the most important parts of a motocross race, and dumbing it down just seems so dumb. I'm not saying its unfair, but it just seems so...un-motocross like, if that makes sense. The AMA should be focusing on closing the money/equipment gap at the amateur level, so those with true skill shine, and I feel like this does the opposite. Anyone else feel like sharing their opinion?
