So, will we ever see this system brought to market?

What do you think? Obviously it would be slightly different than the WSBK system, but do you think Akrapovic will ever do a replica system for us common folk?

I don't personally think so. Akrapovic has made a ton of special pipes for WSBK/WSS teams that never made it to the consumer level. Which appears to be the opposite of Termi who would sell the Corse parts to anyone that paid for them. That's also ignoring the fact that there are likely flapper valves in that setup which are tied into the electronics they are running at that level. Without all that on a regular bike, it may not even be that much of an advantage other than looking badass and sounding amazing.

Personally I don't like them. The bike looks so clean with the mufflers on the bottom. I would gladly give up a few ponies. I will keep my DP Akrapovic's thank you.
Besides I gave up 2HP just so I can run around with out the baffles in. Love that superquadro sound!!!!
Thanks from Twistedracer

I know on RSV4s you can buy used WSBK exhausts either from teams or even eBay. I don't see why Panigales would be different. Looks like these would be "easier" to make compared to the Akra Evolutions, but their pretty much straight pipe so they'll be loud as hell.

We need a connect in the EU!

Given the small amount of full systems available for the Pani, I highly doubt it.

Besides, the currently Akra design and contract with Ducati has already been implemented.

No,it wont. Teams running in BSB can't get it, so neither will we.
