Akrapovic Exhaust with Custom tuned ECU deal/Group Buy ?

Hey Guys - for those interested in the Akrapovic Exhaust for the Panigale. I've been talking to the Rexxer guys about this. They've agreed to do a group buy if there are enough people interested in the Akrapovic exhaust for 1199. As you guys know, the Akrapovic exhaust is Titanium and of the highest quality. The price will be around 4k depending upon how many we get into the group buy. But what they are willing to do for people interested before the release, is that they have agreed to include with the purchase of the exhaust through them a rexxer tune module with the tuned akrapovic ecu map. With the actual rexxer module, you will be able to store your stock ecu in the tune module and put the akrapovic tune map onto your ecu. If you ever want to remove the akrapovic ecu and restore to your stock ecu, you can do so with the rexxer program module at any time in the future. I believe this module is like $500. I really like the concept of being able to restore my ecu back to factory if I ever wanted to without sending an ecu module away to be programmed...

To Me this is the best of both worlds IMO. I have nothing to do with this particular deal and am only trying to pass this information along for those who may be interested in the Akrapovic exhaust and want to have the tuned up map for the exhaust. I've put my name down on the list and put a deposit down. If anyone else is interested - please contact david@rexxer.com and tell them you're interested in the Akrapovic group buy with the included ECU up map.

Akrapovic's expected release date for the exhaust is sometime in early to mid May. Found out while in discussions with them that Akrapovic is partnered with Rexxer to develop tuned maps for the Ducati 1199 and other Ducati's (Multi/Hyper/etc etc).

Standard disclaimer - I don't work for them, own them, or have any affilication with Akrapovic or Rexxer, etc. I have been a customer of theirs (and other Ducati dealerships) and many of you guys know them for their ECU tuning for other exhausts.
Thanks from ttkarp, Trauma, Germcati and 2 others

Thumbs up

Sounds awesome! The deal that is!

I like the fact that this system was not rushed out to the public but that they have really done their home work. At least that is how it appears to be.

I don't think I could justify swapping the full DP for this just yet, unless there was some huge power and torque improvements.

I have faith considering my previous Titanium Akrapovic system experiences that this will be the best full system available.

I can't wait to hear how it works out for you and thanks for getting the ball rolling on a group deal inc the rexxer. I'm envious that I'm not in the market.
Thanks from ttkarp and Stw

pics look good on their site. also look like they have the spring moved down farther so it wont melt the fairing like the stock or termi's are doing.

I doubt they'll publish any. That way you won't be disappointed with your $4k purchase

Something to add about the rexxer unit. Had one for my 1098SF, and it was the best tuning unit you can buy. But the only problem is when you go to sell it, that Rexxer unit is locked to that perticular bike. And if you wanna sell the unit, you have to send it to rexxer to get it flashed for a new bike. So the person that buys it second hand has to send it out and they charge you $300.

Just an FYI.

Other than that it a wicked unit.

Just speculation based on what they've done thus far. The system has been available to purchase for a couple of months now yet none have shipped. Instead of posting specs and performance gains they posted video and sound clips. Clearly they felt video and audio was more important. maybe an AK rep will logon and answer a few questions for us?
