Akrapovich Panigale R Options

Anybody hear first hand the difference in loudness between the Akropovich Race Cans vs the stock Akrapovich Cans on the 15-17 Panigale R?

Also any 3rd party Can recommendations that would fit the 15-17 Panigale R stock pipes?

It's a shame Ducati didn't include the Race Cans in the box of extras that are included with the Panigale R.

There is a little difference between stock cans from the 15-17R vs the full Akro race system. All the manifolds bolt pattern are the same 1199/1299/1199R.

I’ve had experience with several exhausts on a 2012 S and 2013 R.

I personally like the way the 15-17 R Akra cans sound, better than the Akra full race cans. Actually, I like the way the stock 15-17 R Akra cans better than Termi Slip-Ons, Termi Full, Akra Race, and Termi Front Exit slip one. To me, all the exhausts I mentioned and had experience with sounded too raspy compared to the roar of the stock 15-17 R Akra stock cans.

Of course, the Akra race are lighter, look better, and should give better performance (especially after some tuning) since they do not have any restrictions.

The only exhausts I like that to me sound better are the new style Akra WSBK exhausts (supplied with the 1299 SL), the Storm Racing versions, the other WSBK Akra with quality issues (Redline) that were sold here. The Stock Akra on the 1299FE sound good also.

I had a 15R and installed the DP full Akrapovic with a RB Racing module. I honestly couldn't tell any difference in sound from the homologated Akras that came oem on the R. I got a great deal on the DP system and that is the only reason I switched. I wouldn't do it again.

I Ride: Some pretty amazing Ducatis
Akrapovic Panigale R Options

I have a WSBK exhaust on my Superleggera from one of the WSBK teams at one of the rounds and it's a million times different from the race exhaust that my superleggera came with. It's 70mm vs 60mm and it has a large hoop extension that gives the bike a ton more mid-range (18hp on the dyno in the mid-range). But that's an actual WSBK exhaust. I don't know how many are floating around out there but it would bolt on a 15-17 Panigale R.

Very Nice. I love the original SL. Closest I have is the side fairings (in a box). There is a nice one second hand here in Australia. But too pricey for me

Some exciting second hand offers are floating around recently:

BSB
https://www.racing4fun.de/markt/details/186227.html

WSBK
https://www.racing4fun.de/markt/details/186452.html

Both offers come from the same seller. I have had business with him. Must have close connections to racing teams for sure.
Thanks from Mrdcook2
