The Athena GET ECU for the Honda L and RL bikes - a Taco Moto Co. exclusive.
GET equipped moto magazine cover build, regarding the one of a kind custom build we recently completed for Ron Lawson editor of Dirt Bike Magazine, after his first test rip he said, “I’ve only ridden the bike once since completion but I already know it’s incredible. It’s smooth, fast and the EFI mapping is flawless.”
Check out Ron’s review of his 21’ 500 EXCF with a Taco Moto Co. GET ecu installed.
Oh yea kids, this is the one right here. This is the ECU / tuning device you’ve been hearing about, that lives up to the hype.
Check it out guys, there’s alot of great tuning and engine management products out there: and we like, race, and sell them all.
Each has it's own strengths and merits and all really are worthy of your bike. It's a great time to be in moto with so many awesome engine management choices.
And while many of them do a great job, when you're ready for the best there is you're ready for the GET. There’s nothing else like it.
And we know you can source these from lots of outlets like the local bike shop or moto dealer, on-line retailers, even eBay or Amazon.
They’re everywhere, so what are the advantage to buying your GET from Taco Moto Co?
To help answer that here’s a question I’m asked all the time, "I see these posts and comments on Thumper Talk or Facebook KTM groups and clearly you guys have the best maps and reputation out there for tuning and customer support, but my dealer gave me $100 off a GET when I bought my bike or I found a cheaper one on Ebay than yours. I've already spent a ton on my bike, I'm just trying to find one on the cheap cheap."
I totally get it, dropping this kind of coin on your machine takes a careful look so let’s focus on the Taco Moto Co. difference.
Pretty much all the dealers, eBay sellers and other outlets are shipping this ECU with the generic stock Athena base map in both map slots, likely with some preset traction control on map 2, probably to level 5. And that's cool I guess, because the Athena base maps are great. So much better then the stock ECU and maps.
But we don’t ship our boxes with the stock Athena base maps because we flash each one unique with our own proprietary custom maps none of the other guys can come close to. Every unit that goes out the door from us is custom set up and tested specific for you and your bike.
No one in the tuning business has more dyno, testing, racing and development time on the GET ECU's then we do.
We’re continually testIng and perfecting our maps all through the south west deserts, deep Utah forest tight single track and back canyons, technical gnar gnar in high altitude Colorado, Arizona and Idaho, east coast woods and trails, the insanely grueling Baja 1000 and too many local club races and organized rides to mention. Our test riders and development partners have made our maps what they are and that’s second to none.
We have maps that do things like turn the fan on earlier then the stock fan range, give the tip over sensor extra time to let you pick up your bike after a dirt nap, we can ease back the hit and punch of the power band at low throttle angles to make smoother more predictable power in the low range when you're boulder crawling in the mountains.
Want to have a hard edge rev limiter or a soft entry limit point where the power tapers and flattens off? Want a different rev limit for map 1 then map 2? We got you.
Better power for better control and a better ride.
Did you also know that erratic, choppy, inconsistent power is also terribly demanding and fatiguing to ride? It takes increased focus and muscle attention to ride a bike that’s riding you like that?
The GET system with Taco Moto Co. Custom maps will turn your machine into the most powerful, adaptable and smoothest running bike you’ve ever ridden. No question.

“Just installed the Athena Get ECU (no Wi-Fi) from Taco Moto and also the Graves slip on exhaust. What an incredible difference it made! Lots more power and no more twitchy throttle. A totally different bike now. And the Graves exhaust sounds great and not too loud. And weighs 9lbs less than stock. And added the Smog Block Off kit and got rid of that decel snapping”
“Hey Mike. Jerry here. All I can say about the GET ECU is WOW! Plugged it in. Set the TPS. Took off on a 160 mile loop to the mts. 10% single track, 60% FS roads/Jeep trails, and 30% pavement. More power all through the rev range. Better throttle response all through the rev range and over 57MPG! I like it much better than the Vortex.
Gone is the excessive engine braking of the Vortex. Engine feels freer and smoother running. More power and throttle response throughout the rev range. And the big kicker… I picked up 10MPG! Thank you!”
“When I bought my RL and rode it home all I can say is yawn. It was nothing like what I had hoped for with it. I saw guys in a Facebook group talking about the Taco Moto GET ecu for these bikes so I ordered one and a Graves system and now have almost 2,500 miles of riding so far and it’s amazing, I love this bike so much. It went from a bike I thought I’d made a mistake buying to one that’s now an absolute joy, thanks Mike and team for all your help too getting it set up and configured for me, I so much recommend this set up to anyone on the Honda”
