Engine control requires precision. At 20,000 RPM the Taipan ECU guarantees a precision of 1/10 of degree: this means an accuracy within 0.8 usec for turning the spark ON!

This precision is the key to guarantee :

A very consistent engine rotation.

The possibility to repeat dozens of tests at the bench, always obtaining the same exact result.

A perfect reactivity at every minimum change of any point of a map, resulting in more power at the wheel.

UC Bridge

The UC Bridge is the connection between the CAN bus of the ECCU and the USB port of your PC. It is available in 2 different licenses :

User License : A Taipan ECU comes with some basic maps that already give you better performance than the stock maps. Highly professional tuners all over the world offer specific maps that better fit your requirements, managing, for example, different exhaust, two injectors etc.

The UC Bridge is required for two functions :
- Transfer new and different maps to your ECU through the User License UC Bridge.
- Receiving diagnostic information from the Taipan ECU.

Tuner License :

With this license, the tuner can create different maps, configurations and strategies designed for the rider's bike. The tuner can then flash them directly onto the ECU or send them via email to allow the rider to download and install them in the ECU.

*Please Note: For information regarding the UC-Bridge Tuner, Please contact one of our AiM technical team for further information.
