Akro slip on vs full exhaust sound

Hey guys is there much of a sound difference between the akro full exhaust and the slip on if any. Iím really trying to justify spending 7 grand on the full exhaust. I donít need any more horsepower Iím just after sound quality.
Iíve been quoted $4800 fitted for the slip on and 7 grand for the full exhaust. Ducati are trying to explain to me for only 2200 more itís worth the full? If there is a significant sound difference Iím sold but would like to hear your thoughts

I heard both, first I tested a dealer demonstrator with the full system, then purchased my bike and had the slip ons fitted.
We had both bikes running and I couldnít tell a difference. With the slip on you still remove the cats and exhaust valve.
I couldnít justify the extra expense and being honest (even with Akra db killlers) i find the slip on option is verging on too loud for me.

Mmm...I think you have made an easy decision for me.... thanks man! I think Iíll stick to saving a few thousand and just get the slip on.

My pleasure!
This is what convinced me the sound of the slip-on would be enough:

FWIW I have the Termignoni slip-ons and the sound is great (and so was the cost).

Also interested in the degree to which mid range power is preserved with the slip ons vs the full system, particularly for the R where mid range is at a deficit to the 1100

You can buy the exhaust from Italy for 4K just doesn't have the umap.

I'm probably going to go akra slip ons or maybe Arrow slip ons.

Does the full exhaust help with heat issues at all?
