There will be an large number of exhaust options hitting the market very soon. That is the reason I have held off on the expensive Termi race exhaust. The downside to other manufacturers is that you will need to find another way to remap the fueling on the ECU, since the re-map key is only available with the Termi. (so far as I am aware).
You may well find that the fueling improves with a less restrictive exhaust. I'm not convinced a re-map is necessary on such a modestly powerful engine.

The more open exhaust makes the bike run even more lean which makes the low-rpm fueling worse. Frankly even the stock exhaust needs a richer fuel mix at lower rpm. That would address the snatchy throttle. The motorcycle manufactures are forced to set their low-rpm fuel maps to be very lean to mean emission regulations. :-(

I've investigated this with two different exhaust manufacturers. It is near the same price as doing the Termi when it is all said and done. Of course I just over 250 off of the retail price ($1039.00 USD) for buying the bike through this particular dealer. If you pay full price then I would seek an alternative. IMO

Isn't part of the point of having an oxygen sensor on the exhaust pipes so that a FI computer can adjust itself for rich/lean conditions?

I know that new maps help the bike, but it's not the same thing as putting straight pipes on a carbureted bike and holing the pistons, right?

Yep, spot on, if you consider that the ECU can adapt and cope with all the different fuel ratings and variable qualities plus air density issues caused by hot versus cold days and altitude, then changing or even removing a muffler is no difficult change.


The Termi / Ducati remap will be a generic tune to improve / increase (optimise) power delivery, the ECU won't necessarily be able to do that on it's own. Plus it gets you back into the Dealers showroom.


Having said all of that, I fitted my Termi 300km's ago. no remap, it's running perfectly.

These are mainly slip on cans. A remap will make very little difference. If you went for a full race exhaust, you may get a little more benefit from a remap.
