    Sorry, that must have been to the live show.
    Try this one, it should be a link to the recorded show.

    (edit: I tried both links and they both work. The JC interview starts about 11 min in.

    Speedbrain and the rider's contracts are with BMW Motorad and are in effect for one more year. Also Speedbrain owns the engineering rights to the bike, but not the motor. Interestingly, Speedbrain's engineers in Germany massaged the motors built for races previous to Dakar 2013, but the Dakar motors were supplied directly from Husqvarna Italy. With these they had problems they never encountered before.

    In theory what this means is that Speedbrain continues on presumably with the TE449RR bike badged as a BMW, but with what motor is the mystery. BMW no longer produces a 450 so without a production bike, are they eligible within the rules? That is the big question.

    at the moment it's quite hard to figure out all the strings connected between BMW and Husqvarna from the outside. The new models at Husky have basically modified BMW engines (Nuda, TR650 Terra, the 449ers ...). I can't believe that BMW motorcycle will let all the know how get into the Indian market (via Bajaj) . so maybe Pierer cut off all strings to KTM and therefor Bajaj and starts all over again? Only guessing...
