Sounds like I'll just need to snag an exhaust and some bits to go play.. hopefully Ducati has the race/track bodywork already ready to go. Going to need it.
front subframe is magnesium, rear subframe is cast aluminium.

That may have gotten scrapped since the original info came out, Ducati lists Aluminum for all models on the spec as of this morning for the front frame.

If that exhaust adds 14hp you can definitely expect it to cost 7k. And that is crazy!

Front sub to Ducati is really the fairing mount, as differentiated from the new "front frame", which is AL on all models. That IS magnesium, same as it was on the now defunct V2 (feels weird saying that!).
Thanks from Riki

Yes I'd call that a "Fairing Bracket", and I'd call the rear seat support the "Subframe" and the front headstock mounting piece the "Frame". So it makes sense the Fairing Bracket is Magnesium, the Frame is Aluminum, and so is the Subframe. Early indications were that the Subframe was going to be Magnesium on the Speciale, as were the wheels, but that didn't happen.

It's actually less than I though it would be, I was expecting $5700.

Well it's around UK£4K here, so not a million miles out. Stil a hefty chunk more than a 1299 full Akra system but if it really liberates 8kg (which I don't doubt looking at that enormous Euro 4 catalytic converter/silencer monstrosity and adds 12bhp, then that's quite a tangible improvement.
