Akrapovič has taken its fantastic (r)evolutionary exhaust that premiered at the 2014 Intermot show and created the first titanium version, which will initially be available for the stunning Ducati Multistrada 1200.
The innovative shape of the Slip-On Line (Titanium) system was designed by company founder Igor Akrapovič and has already featured in a carbon-fibre construction for several bikes, including the original concept version at the Intermot Show in Cologne. The unique muffler is a dynamic upgrade of the hexagonal version that Akrapovič successfully developed some years ago and demonstrates a revolutionary evolution, which shows why Akrapovič is at the very pinnacle of high-performance exhaust technology.

The 2015 Ducati Superbike family presents a major new player in the category: the 1299 Panigale. The latest arrival at the Bologna-based firm, with its 1285 cm3 Superquadro engine, raises the standards once again in terms of performance for supersports bikes on the international market. Thanks to an incredible torque of 144.6 Nm at 8,750 rpm, a dry weight of 166.5 kg, a maximum power of 205 hp at 10,500 rpm and a record-breaking power-to-weight ratio that puts its ahead of all competing road bikes, the 1299 Panigale is now the new benchmark for ultra-high performance bikes.
The new electronic package, specifically designed for the 1299 Panigale and incorporated in the three different Riding Modes, boosts performance even higher. Thanks to the presence of the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), riders can count on Cornering ABS, along with Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and, on the S version, the Öhlins Smart EC, an event-based suspension control system. Moreover, the 1299 Panigale features, for the first time on a road-legal Ducati Superbike, the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), now usable for down-changing too: this sharpens track performance even further while making the bike easier to use on a daily basis. On the 1299 Panigale, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC) are all optimised thanks to an automatic tyre size and final drive ratio calibration system.
