Akrapovic Exhaust or termi ?

Alright guys, so I'm up in the air right now which one to get. I would like responses on experiences with both exhaust. Plus the other reason I would like to get a new exhaust besides it being louder is I heard the akra will help dissipate the heat. I dont know about any one else but I got a nice 1st degree burn on my inner thighs. I do wear leathers, i thought it would help but it doesn't.
It's just plain hot in ATL .

I'll appreciate all responses thank you guys.

I don't have an experience of the V4 but my last few Ducati's have had Akra's, the fit and finish were significantly better than the Termi option.

I doubt there is any different in heat dissipation between either brand and if there is I imagine it would be negligible.

Choose whichever one you like the look of the most.

I even heard this lower heat claim on the much cheaper Austin Racing exhaust specs. I've yet to see any actual data to support it though. I'm on a V4 base and had two L2 Panigales before this one and they all roasted me with stock and aftermarket systems. Still stock on the V4 though due to the insane cost of pipes for this platform.

Really wish Ducati would sort this out. Never have this issue on any other bikes including other Ducati models. My Streetfighter is cool as a clam even during in traffic. Three seems to be some serious heat transfer issues between the engine and the new non-trellis frames.

Yeah I spoke with the mechanic at the dealership about heat transfer from akra exhaust. Apparently titanium is good at transferring heat.

Plus the sub frame is where at the heat gets trapped. If only Ducati could fix that issue. Lol

I have the full race akra on my v4s and i don't really notice any difference with the heat. Here in Hawaii, its pretty much hot all year round so i avoid traffic when i ride to save my scrotum from the singe.

Build quality, i had the termis on my 1199 and the build quality of the akra is better. However, i feel like the termi is more robust and stronger (also heavier).

I chose the akra for the v4s to keep the lines of the tail. I love the termi full system but i don't like how the pipe takes up so much of the tail and sticks out like 8 inches. If it was more flush with the tail, like the d16rr, i definitely would have gone that route.

I Currently have the akra but I am thinking of changing to termi. Akra looks better but termi works better. Full akra creates a flat spot in the middle .
I have been using akra exhausts since 1996 and have never seen a bad one but the full akra on the v4 is not a good exhaust
