Does the akra that comes std with the R have the butterfly valve in it for the noise emissions ?

You know the one where we all disconnect the cable.

I am totally guessing here and stand to be corrected..but I am thinking the R will be shipped with the same Pipe as the S ..with the Akra accompanying the bike in the crate... The dealer will install... Just like the Tricolore was shipped with stock pipe with Termi slips included... This is the only way I see DNA getting around the DOT regs on emissions/noise..... So..no valve or cats in Akra pipe... But.... I'm guessing as I say...

I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick up the base model. I could swing the "S" model by not convinced the extra $6k is right for me. The electronic suspension control seems cool. All fine and dandy for your advanced rider but I weigh about 250lbs all geared up and still can't out ride the track only 2007 CBR 600RR I have now with properly sprung Ohlins. I'd hope if I ever track the Duc I could get a traditional Ohlins set up for my weight for id hope a few grand.

In the U.S. the 2015 Panigale R will come with full Ti Akra homologated exhaust ONLY, it will NOT come with the optional non-homologated racing mufflers like the SL did. Those will be available separately in Ducati Performance catalog.

I guess the question is what is the difference between the current 1199 akra system v's the homollgated system v's the non homologated racing cans.

Insurance 1299s

My business partner a I are just about to order a pair of 1299s'.
We have been looking into insurance and no one seems to be able to help.
I'm 35 with full licence for 14yrs and my partner is 42 with a full licence for 16yrs we have no claims or convictions.

Can anyone help with who to use or is it more to do with the fact the bike is not released yet?

Try Ducati insurance.

I have the new Panigale R on order, they quoted me £610 fully comp.

I'm 36, full bike license for 9 years, Male, works offshore (apparently not good for insurance!?!?), seeks female with big............. hang on, wrong forum......... Maybe a speeding fine and 6 points a while back.

The only thing is they have specified a tracker for theft reasons.
