if the cans were black with that carbon belly pan it would look good IMO.


even if you don't like the titanium welding I'm surprised the hate on the motogp style exhaust routing . does anyone think the exhaust flows with the bike ?

the other exhaust I've seen looked like snaggletooth sticking up on one side and down on the other .

oh well to each his own

I would think ceramic coat would work. That blue on the cans looks horrible

Its like a Star Wars figure in the blister pack.....if you take it out the value drops 30 percent. I think the pop rivet that hold it together looks like crappy pants too.....all that time and money spent on titanium with fancy welds, and they use a Home Depot rivet to hold it together.

That bike is going to EICMA. So go figure, he wants to keep the tires pristine.

Also, gas tight rivets are state-of-the-art in MC exhausts. They differ a bit from home depot LOL

GOOD LORD!!!

Not wild about the blue, but the welds look pretty cool.

Why does the v4 attract shitty aftermarket exhausts? Are they trying to see what they can get away with?

For Sherpa and others interested.... Tooling for complex bends is very expensive. Factory race teams for many years have used multiple cut weld angles to make exhausts in small quantities because they are constantly experimenting for best performance. Obviously for production purposes, once a design is decided, it is more efficient to tool up. There are those in the market place, and many Ducati owners fall into this category, that find aesthetics (somewhat subjective) paramount and many find the "factory" race look appealing. As they say, "to each his own"...
Thanks from Phl and Sherpa23
