I Ride: 2018 Panigalè Specialè , 2015 1299S, 2013 BMW HP4, 2005 ZX10R, 1997 GSXR600, 1979 CB750SS Cafe'
Wink V4 Exhaust

WARNING!!!!

Anyone considering the full Akra exhaust for their V4 should know that installation is supposed to be a "bitch!" My dealer us charging 9-10-hours labor for the install. Supposedly you have to remove subframe, tank, rear wheel, etc..... I had them go ahead and install mine on my Speciale' since I had a $1000 credit with them. Just wanted to warn other Speciale' buyers that the upgraded exhaust doesn't come installed and isn't cheap or easy to do so.

good to know that on top of the exhaust, the labor will be 500-800. This is not even including a tune to make it run properly.

Tune most likely comes with the exhaust in the form of an upmap unlocking key that plugs into the diags port.

Every Akrapovic exhaust comes with a serial number so the Ducati dealers can request the tune. This can only be done 1 time so used exhaust won’t be able to sell with a tune.

It was a pain on the 1199 as well... although if you know basic Maintanence and can follow instruction you can DIY. Took me about a week, few hours after work with a cold one, but I got it done and learned a heck of a lot about my bike!

Here's an example of privateering engineering at its best.
His call sign is Beaker from New Zealand.
