EN­GINE MAPS

Bike India - - BOSCH TECHNO BIBLE -

In bikes with elec­tronic fuel-in­jec­tion, the con­trol unit for the fuel sys­tem is loaded with a set of pre-pro­grammed ‘maps’ which dic­tate how much fuel is to be in­jected at what en­gine speed, based on ev­ery­thing from air pres­sure and air tem­per­a­ture to fuel qual­ity and throt­tle po­si­tion. The con­trol unit can also vary the fuel in­jec­tion as well as ig­ni­tion tim­ing dy­nam­i­cally to im­prove en­gine re­sponse, ef­fi­ciency, and per­for­mance. Mod­ern sport bikes such as the Du­cati 1299 Pani­gale and Aprilia RSV4 let rid­ers fine-tune these maps, us­ing spec­i­fied soft­ware ap­pli­ca­tions.
