The exhaust are available but in ducati's site it states is 1299 only and not homolagated which is weird cause the R brings it stock.

The guy below installed the 1299 Akra (you can see it has the Ducati Performance logo on the cans) on his 899. Don't know why he went this route since the 1299 one is significantly more expensive than the old Akras designed for the 899/1199.

As for the R having it stock, I was told by the Ducati dealership here that they are having a lot of trouble getting it approved by the local transport agency here. They are having to sell the R by informing prospective buyers that the exhaust is not street-legal despite it being apparently 'homologated'.

Mariner and Ge-spot like this.

The guy went with the ones by Ducati for the same reason I'm looking for one. Which is, assuming it's homolagated for the R than it should be street legal for the 899...

Do you have any buddies with a certification letter? Why not just photshop one and print one off yourself? Is a cop on the roadside really going to know the difference?

Any special stamp or embossing on the letter? Get a buddy to "lose" his certificate letter and get another one to replace and give you an original?

My problems is not the cops, every 2 years we have to pass a government vehicle examination. I do not have a document for my current exhaust but they do have ducati stamped in them.

In that case, why not use non-homologated slip-ons, and switch back to the stock ones once every two years at examination?

We have inspections here as well. If my only concern was the annual inspection, I'd be running slip-ons for sure and get them to switch before inspection.

Well the deal is I live in an apartment complex and do not have a garage. But if I could install the complete system and have my stock exhaust easily changed for the akras that would be awesome. I just haven't had a way to verify is this was posible...

I see. The performance gains with a full system aren't really there (other than saving another 2kg and having nicer looking pipes), so might be easier just to go with a slip-on. That can be relatively easily installed and removed.

Not tempted to go with the Akra slip-on?

The price difference was minimal for slip and full system. So i would rather go with the full system for the looks and the weight saving.

the slip on on the 2015 1199 r is a titanium akrapovic exhaust but has the same design like the stock cans of the 1299. this one is road legal, but only fits with the 1299 headers.


the other akra you can buy regularly has no certificate.

modded exhaust for 899/1199:$450 /959/1299:$550 - more flow, more sound, less heat ---> mailto:
