SAWEET!! Looks like we’re not getting hoodwinked after all Well, not by Redline. It’s a very odd feeling trying to decide what to do with the Akra cans. Such beautiful, trash. Why did they change the SL setup so drastically that Absolutely Nothing carries over?

Well I have my feelings, rooted in my 199 questions coming into my Ducati ownership. BUT! Seeing as the Akrapovic dropped a “service plug” and almost burned a lot more than an SAS can/lines/mount/fairing as mine and numerous others did...

Since they couldn’t muster a simple “Damn we’re sorry” over my melted Parts list because apparently safety wire is too high end for my little FE.... Instead contact me to say “We’ll look into it”. REALLY? Wow thanks, I was worried about other owners, bless them with this knowledge before more bikes are damaged or someone gets hurt? My crazy thinking at least.

No one was notified, other owners who suffered the same failure and even head techs from Ducati shops who did the work; they contacted me. I sought out everyone I could find and let them know; a few techs took it on themselves to talk to owners. But no way that got to everyone.

Since Akrapovic themselves troll my Instagram page, I’m going to publicly call them out again over breakfast.

I was so excited about the FE, huge part being these pipes. I still have the Parts book diagrams of the SL and FE exhaust systems; when they were identical. So why did they render every last bit absolutely useless? Why am I basically throwing away an item worth a fortune?











Why wasn’t our safety worth securing the plug in the exhaust? Best of all is since it was over a month earlier this happened to other people...

Why wasn’t I worth notifying? It makes me SICK. Oh yeah, and one of the two lines it’s melting off is vapor/overflow from the fuel tank. No safety concern there though.

Done! Agents of Italia on IG and DAMN this might get messy. I really do have the proof that we were to get SL pipes originally. Then, things changed.

Very true Sir! My thought process waiting, well discovering their startup may have influenced it. May have thought it through to completion in any and all feasible ways. I dig those guys, true hardcore on the fly startup while racing and traveling and yeah 🤣

I’ve been over-motivated and I’ve been the embodiment of sloth, somewhere in between keeps me happy. When one of the heads called me fresh off a flight from Daytona, from racing and testing the exhaust and exhaust dB and all that stuff.... Oh MAN I knew that tone of voice, the tempo, all of it; FULL TILT.

It takes a special breed to pull this stuff off, let alone correctly. I’m stoked they actually did it, this is a SERIOUS initial product offering, IMEANDAM! People on uk forums were so deep into discussing the worlds finest welding, the production order and methods, I had No Clue what anyone was talking about 🤣

A bit I knew, but this was professionals talking shop about say, how Moto Corse makes a header. But one guy suddenly called Time; and pointed out the only competitors they were talking about by default.... Holy!!!

Ok, startup, group of racers... Trying to make a Titanium exhaust for a Twin? Ducati too?

And Moto Corse, Termi and Akra were the welding being compared down to gas levels with torches. Some points a guy made, he was right, the competition did it better. Except then he pointed out IT DIDNT MATTER!!

Man I hope they’re proud, because that’s comparing corvettes to Ferraris. When half the system costs significantly more than the whole... That’s just unfair. But you know, it was the tiniest bit of aesthetics in the corner of a header pipe. That’s amazing.

Retail on the Redline is $3500.00 for the full titanium system. We got a break on pre-order which was great, but a roll of the dice too. Now that I’m seeing it, SUPERB. The only way to get a better system imho would be go the 10k and up route. Just beautiful.
