I have a lot of closeups from them (not all final versions) and will have install pics followed by dyno video and results under Agents of Italia on IG soon.

Seriously! I fully understand where folks are coming from, but having experienced this attitude directed towards me with no good reason before; well itís just unfortunate After seeing the $5900.00 tag on the Akra, more excited than ever 🦆

Yes I'm sure all is legit , but they wanted payment in full , then we will build it for you . I was looking at getting these , but no dyno figures/graph , small headers and I believe unequal headers. Still a very nice system. I went for STORM PERFORMANCE EXHAUST in the UK , I ordered the pipe , he sent updated photos of the build and asked for payment just prior to shipping . Still, supporting a smaller company to make a product is great.
Is that correct Ducati are only taking orders for the V4 with full payment in advance ? Sorry just shit stirring!

I agree with you NESBA. I honestly didn't think anything of the immediate charge until I read the comments here. They undoubtedly need the capital to support the raw materials purchases.

They have been very responsive with me and expect to be shipping in about two weeks. I will definitely check back in once I receive the parts with my review.

Totally understandable. Iíll be the first dyno figures and data made public, Faster Twin will be doing the tuning and Raffaele has an amazing reputation. The Panigale is tricky to tune, very few setups exist in the US to do it 100% properly. Apparently the computer fights back with aggression unless you have an intense airflow replication setup.

I came up around Traxxion Dynamics, Graves selling bits trackside themselves... Penske using us as testers and such... So the r&d Racing and just the whole deal, is awesomely reminiscent of the good old days.

The pics get difficult because many are of first versions. The 7th iteration header sizes and length are spot on. And the bike is running almost 20 degrees cooler on average in a race environment.

Any which way Iíll have parameters and results on film for everyone ASAP. I can only hope Akrapovic provides such information and test results for everyone. Iíd like to see how theirs actually runs.

We also got $700 off our systems in exchange for pre-ordering. Thatís kind of an informal agreement imho. They actually apologized for being in Daytona Racing and unable to process my charge for an extra week.

Iím a paranoid sob with any reason to be, Iím just excited to hear her, no worries here

PS: Iím not sure about the deposit deal on the V4, but I did read some folks still havenít gotten their FEís yet. Thatís gotta hurt, almost 3K on mine and innumerable adventures 🦆

Right! This is exactly correct, just that businesses donít care generally. The issue as pertains to Redline I assumed it was the reason for the hefty price reduction. Just excited

I got charged within hours for an agv pista gpr and i waited almost 4 months for the damn helmet. I actually called my CC provider to see if i was covered just in case they closed down and they said i was good for more than a couple months as long as i had proof they were stalling me. Cant wait to see this exhaust
