Ordering a Termi or Akra

I know the Termi's are normally an exclusive product only sold by Ducati dealers, but now since they switched to Akra's; Does anyone know if other dealers can order the new Termi's or Akra for the 1299s (from the Drag Book or anywhere else)?

I've seen some on eBay, but you're not saving much compared to dealer prices. Not too many options for us right now, and as far as I know, the only up-map available so far is the Akrapovic one.

I saw the Akra full system in a parts unlimited book and the guy said he could sell one to me for $3500. Only thing is the one in the parts unlimited book was for an 1199 2012-2014. He said he'd call them to find out if he can order the ones for the 2015 1299.

If you're wanting the Evo system, it's the same for 1199 and 1299. If you want the DP version with the included upmap and fancy DP logo that gives you an extra 5hp, then be prepared to pay closer to $5000. Get the Evo system and save yourself $$.
Thanks from Mutt1979 and Chaotic

incorrect. the laser etching of the Ducati Performance logo adds 7.9whp peak and 18.7whp at 7900rpm. And the torque gains cannot be measured by traditional instrumentation. This alone justifies the $5000 price for what otherwise amounts to a collection of metal pipes.
Thanks from Phl and Blade Runner

I am still debating what exhaust to get. We just don't have that many choices. I like the GP style exhausts and 2 into 1s but again not many choices. I wish someone like Graves or anyone would jump on a make a good exhaust for the Pani that didn't cost so much.

I Ride: V4S and Ninja 400. Dichotomy.
The way it works is that the licensing for the Termi DP products for everything prior to the 1299 is tied to Ducati, and will continue to be sold through Ducati dealers exclusively. The 1299 Akra exhaust is also exclusively licensed to Ducati, and as mentioned previously it's different from the Akra Evo system which has been out for several years. Going forward we'll continue to see both Termi and Akra exhausts through DP for various bikes, for example the DP exhausts for the new Scrambler are all Termi products. So there has been no severing of ties between Termi and Ducati.

With such mercenary mark ups the profits must be the next best thing to extortion (asking Arsehammer's pardon). No wonder Termi and Ducati are joined at the hip.

Do you know how the Evo and DP exhausts are physically different? (Ignoring the logo/up map). I fitted the Evo, a friend fitted the DP and we can't see any physical difference - except in the price!
