It was like watching a different bike. Hopefully it gives the Kawi a run for it's money the rest of the season.

I also wonder how much of this development will go into the next iteration of the new Panigale. Not saying it should be replaced, but in an effort to cut down on the developments timeline to make it competitive out the box.

You will notice when Chaz was passing Sykes and Rea how flick able the Panigale is and the lines Chaz could take this has always been a high point for the Panigale and one of the reasons the bike looks a little more unsettled than the Zx 10 .
Now with the new found grunt the bike seems very competitive .

Bravo Chaz. Got the double win this weekend at Aragon. The bike was a weapon this weekend.

How did Ducati get around the rules, or did WSBK change them?

The rules (at least used to) state the exhaust must remain in the OEM position. That is back when the Gixxers had those dual exhausts, they had them in WSBK also. There were many aftermarket systems that dumped the additional can and made them single, but they werent allowed to do it in WSBK.

I was wondering the same thing because EBR's race system is an underbelly design, but they had to use a high mount style exhaust because of the OEM design.

thats a really good question I had to look it up:
2.4.8.18 Exhaust system
a) Exhaust pipes, catalytic converters and silencers may be altered or
replaced from those fitted to the homologated motorcycle. Catalytic
converters may be removed.
b) The number of the final exhaust silencer(s) must remain as homologated.
The silencer(s) must be on the same side(s) as on the homologated
model.
c) For safety reasons, the exposed edge(s) of the exhaust pipe(s) outlet(s)
must be rounded to avoid any sharp edges.
d) Wrapping of exhaust systems is not allowed except in the area of the
rider’s foot or an area in contact with the fairing for protection from
heat.
e) The noise limit for Superbikes will be 115 dB/A (with a 3 dB/A tolerance
after the race only).
FIM 2017 Proposals: 107 dB


Its almost like the single exhaust was breaking the rules

The silencers must remain in the same oem position, which they are. Totally legal.

Portimao WSBK: Ducati debut new exhaust - Bikesport News

Aruba Ducati riders Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano debuted a new Akrapovic exhaust in the second World Superbike free practice at Portimao this afternoon and it propelled the pair to the top of the speed list.

Davies was clocked at 308.6kph on the Portugese track’s start/finish straight on his way to the fourth fastest lap of the day an advantage of almost three kilometres per hour over the pack.

World Superbike technical director Scott Smart explained the new system to bikesportnews.com at Portimao: “It’s a new concept for Ducati and results in one exhaust outlet high on the right-hand side, so it is more like the megaphone arrangement of MotoGP bikes.

“It it still legal, the silencers are in the same place, one on each side and hopefully gives them a little bit of extra performance.”
