Termignoni Evolution slip-ons: first road impressions

Keep in mind that the matching air filter has yet to be installed, and I've ordered a Tuneboy kit to do some custom mapping with a tuner.

- low speed fueling needs a tweak. not that any Ducati shines in this department, but it's a touch worse
- but after 2000-2500, it comes alive. much less of a sag around 5000rpm. definitely feels livelier
- upper rpms at WOT feel more or less the same. it's a lot of power and acceleration in that range so it's difficult to tell. It's certainly not slower!
- less engine braking. I'm not a big fan of engine braking - I run EBC at 3 all the time - and while it's still there, it somehow felt less constrained while decelerating in gear. so that, I liked a LOT.
- coolant seemed to be about 5-10 degrees cooler
- heat coming up to roast the rider, unchanged.

And it has everything else with a free-flowing exhaust, like that wonderful deceleration roar, pops when quickshifting, etc. I like it!

ok, now that I've installed the Sprint filter and the sun has come out, I've taken a longer 50 mile ride to really feel it out. Late afternoon, 88 degrees, 60% humidity.

It's better under 3000rpm than with the stock filter, but really, the bike's not meant to live there :P

It's definitely louder. My ears are ringing; I hadn't needed earplugs with the stock mufflers.

Heat distribution is slightly different. I think it was a bit more tolerable.

Power is smoother from 2500-3000 to 8000...then there is a very distinct surge in power to redline. So...it either leveled out the slight dip around 5000rpm and added some top end, or it weakened the power curve below 8000, but evenly :P

I will need to take it to a dyno, and see what tweaks can be made to the fueling via the Tuneboy that should be here within a week or so. I think all the hardware is in place - now it's up to software to see just how much power this thing can make!
Thanks from karrl and Steve B

Totally makes the bike, IMO.

This is the only bike that I've owned that I wasn't immediately compelled to do a new pipe or/and full system. That being said, I saw this Termi with the front exit and got the "exhaust bug".

Looks awesome man.

no on the road video just yet; just the typical garage "sound check" video, after buttoning up the final screw in finishing the job

I like Art Deco as well but the logo just didn't seem to work with the beautiful carbon in my opinion.
I have seen one other person who has painted theirs over, might go that route.
