Have you actually tried emailing them or calling them? I have sent them a couple of emails and they responded pretty quickly. As you may or may not be aware, they seem to be a fairly new company on the scene, judging by a lack of market presence and likely run by a couple of enthusiasts who track their own bikes and are using these as developmental test beds for their work. I like this approach, as by their own admission they are on incarnation 7 of the original design and have steadily improved on it each time, slowly perfecting the layout. I also like the fact it comes with both wide and narrow band Lambda sensor bungs, which is bonus if you run an RB Module on your 11/1299. Several professional welders on the UK forum have also commented on the quality of the work. Worth noting is that possibly as a small company, they have much fewer overheads, so as time consuming as it may be to produce these systems, without the automation of a larger company, they can offer them at a much keener price. They actually list the system for $3500 but are offering it at $2800 for early adopters. I'm on the fence with this one, to the point where I am actually considering ditching the full Akra system, but my only concern is the design of the belly pan which I am waiting to hear back from them about, with a view to changing it's profile to better match the lines of the lower fairing (less bulbous shape). At the moment it's more race than road oriented, presumably to comply with oil containment regs, in the event of a leak.

BTW If you want to see more images of the system, then check out the UK forum thread on it I started (link below). Why oh why is the image uploading engine on this forum so bad by comparison. Admin, where are we at with this issue?

Hey topolino I actually asked them about the underbelly and some more additional information. Check it out maybe it can help answer some questions.

PS: If the questions seem kinda stupid please ignore =) we are all students after all

MY QUESTIONS:

1. For your price 2800 would it be in USD? Also, what about shipping?
On your website, it says the product is Full titanium from headers to cans. I was wondering tho what kind of titanium do you guys use? (this question is more interest level)

2. what does your package include? Headers, Cans, Bolts, UnderBelly pan, Read Exhaust heat shield, etc etc etc..

3. After I buy the exhaust is there any additional tuning I need to do for my bike? Re-map etc etc etc

4. If I pre-order how long would I have to wait to receive my product? (It says November on the website, but would that include the carbon Belly Pan?)

5. I'm planning to track this beast exhaust. What is the DP level on the thing?

6. And do they come with options silencers for us to put on and take off?

7. Hopefully, you can have the Dyno info for us real soon!

ANSWERS:

1. Shipping is done via the site when you buy within the US. It really isn’t that expensive as the entire package weighs about 13 lbs, exhaust is 10lbs…rest is cardboard and foam.

2. We use a Grade 1, Annealed Titanium.

3. Contains everything to mount and use the exhaust. However, the belly pan is NOT included. We are finalizing it.

4. We are recommending a Rapid Bike tuning module. This utilizes the narrow band and wide band sensors. Thus, the reason the RedLine System is the ONLY systems designed to accommodate both bung styles. NOW, you do not have to use the Rapid Bike, you can simply upmap.
a. We recommend jumping over to a high flow K&N filter as well. If you get the stuff out fast, get it in fast too.

5. Should be shipping early November. The belly pans should be the same time too. We are really excited about making the FIRST race belly pan too.

6. Regarding the decibel rating….we don’t have one. It is deeper, it is louder…but it is not louder than an R6 at WOT.

Other fun facts:
A. We have tracked the crap out of this system. It was designed for the track. Our stock systems were melting plastic and cooking oil.
B. This system dissipates so much heat, you can literally put your hand on the header five minutes after riding.
C. We will be making the V4 exhaust as well…


Hopefully, this will help you guys as much as it did for me. Furthermore, as u said before they are a new and small company, but they seem enthusiastic about and their quality lookes good. This will be my next order up~
Thanks from Twistedracer

1. How is their build compared to AR or Akrapovic?
2. How is their sound compared to AR or Akra?
3. why do they cost so much lower would it be because of branding?

Excuse me for the 20/20 questions but I just love to keep myself educated on this kind of stuff and thanks in advance for answering me

Cheers~
Our build quality as you can see, surpasses Akrapovic and AR. We use high quality titanium that has been argon purged.
Our system sounds identical to the Akrapovic SL system
Our cost is lower because we are trying to make a name for ourselves, while providing a high quality system that doesn't break the bank.

This is our first product which is why we have been working on so many prototypes. The company was founded by Ducati racers, and we are currently discussing distribution with multiple Ducati dealers and Sportbike track Gear

I Ride: 2015 Panigale R
Built with performance in mind? But we have no bhp figures........ So you can post dyno vids, but you're not willing to show us the results?

Designed by top engineers and ex racers but no DB level, and again no bhp figures?

"gives your Panigale a deep angry Ducati sound, almost like a tiger, lion, and bear combined" and "Plus, the look it produces is a chick magnet". Who you trying to sell this to? 10 year olds?

Forgive me if I just wait a while..........
Thanks from highside49
