I read about this somewhere else. Regulations make it so that the Japanese have to fit this ugly silencer onto the exhaust in order for the 899 Panigale to be legal in Japan. It seems like such a crime to put that thing on the exhaust. It ruins the whole bike.

Interesting line in the article:

"We’re told the eyesore can be easily removed, with most dealers taking that liberty for an owner at the time of purchase"
I'm guessing in the same vein as the massive plastic rear fender than my bike rolled out of the dealer with. The dealer wasn't allowed to remove it but gave me all I needed to remove it...

It is a seriously ugly exhaust like that!!!

Do you have a pic? I've never seen this before either, only heard about it...
