Akrapovic vs Termi (sound)

I'm thinking of getting the full Akra because of the weight savings ...
The sound on my full Termi sounds amazing, even better now that i have the P16 filter..

In this clip the Akra doesn't sound that different to the full Termi

I guess the horsepower gains are better as most have promulgated....

Please chime in and set me straight ...

PA,
If you are into weight savings then the Akra is the way to go. I previously posted a lot of detail on the actual differences.

I weighed all OEM even brackets and compared. You even save weight removing the motor that drives the valve.

I never had termi so cannot comment on sound but at higher revs the Akra is much louder than OEM. I could get away without ear plugs with OEM but not with the Akra.

IMHO Akra all the way. But I am biased as I spent $3400 USD buying the bastards and then waiting 4 months for delivery.

Akra fanboi

The Akra weighs less than the DP Termi's..

The Termi's pop in a faster speed than the Akra's

Having the termi on my 1199 and the akra on the 1299 I don't think the termi even comes close to the sound of the akra when riding. I always felt disappointed with the termi, compared to the sound of termis on other ducatis. The akra to me sounds the way I always expected a pipe for the panigale to sound.

Full termi sounds nothing like full akra. NOTHING.

Since the full akra is going for $2700ish usd on one of those european sites, the decision should be easy.
