At the recent 2018 EICMA — also known as the annual Milan Motorcycle Show — the newest edition of the Ducati Panigale — the V4 R — was unveiled with a roar. Even with its OEM parts, this bike weighs in at a mere 172 kg with 221 HP, giving it an unbelievable power to weight ratio of 1,300 HP/ton. Of course, for any avid Ducati Panigale enthusiast, these numbers simply mark the starting point for some truly inspiring aftermarket upgrades.
The Ducati Panigale was first released in 2011, named after the small manufacturing town of Burgo Panigale. Since its initial release, the designers and engineers at Ducati have worked to make this model even lighter an faster with every new version released.
For any one of the five Ducati Panigale models currently in existence, swapping out the OEM Ducati Panigale exhaust system for an aftermarket upgrade is made all the easier with handpicked parts and top-notch support from Design Corse. From enhancing the sound this bike puts out to increasing its already notable performance, how you personalize this piece of precision machinery depends entirely on your tastes and needs.
Ducati Panigale Exhausts From Design Corse
When it comes to aftermarket upgrades, you’re looking for two things above all else — choice and quality. The last thing you want is to be stuck with a part that looks generic or one that isn’t on par with the excellence and craftsmanship of the rest of your bike.
Fortunately, at Design Corse, we take all the guesswork out of the aftermarket upgrade experience. You can shop, ask questions and make decisions about your Ducati Panigale exhaust options with full confidence that the results will be up to the standards you expect for a world-class superbike.
For example, if you ride an 1199 or 1299 Panigale, you might want to consider a full exhaust system aftermarket kit from FM Projects — the Italian exhaust replacement specialists that go all out to give every bike equipped with their products better sound, performance and, of course, aesthetics.
In addition to full titanium racing exhausts, front collector pipes and undertail exhaust systems from makers like Moto Corse, Zard Exhaust and CNC Racing, we offer the refined beauty and convenience of an underbelly road slip-on exhaust — also from FM Projects. Designed specifically for the Panigale V4, this aftermarket slip-on will give your bike a new voice that has to be heard to be believed.
Why an Aftermarket Exhaust for Your Panigale?
If you’re on the fence about the slip-on versus full exhaust debate, it’s worth asking yourself what you really want from your aftermarket upgrade. If improved sound and appearance are what you’re after, the ease and simplicity of a slip-on exhaust could be a perfect, cost-effective solution. With slip-on exhausts, the installation procedure typically involves merely swapping out the OEM muffler for the aftermarket part, so installation is simple.
For enhanced performance, greater weight shed and more horsepower, a full exhaust system is the way to go. For this option, you’ll need to spend more time and money since the installation process is more involved. You'll likely require a jet kit or fuel controller as well.
Whichever option you choose, you'll find out why the benefits of making the switch to an aftermarket exhaust system are so gratifying for Ducati Panigale riders who want to put their own stamp on a motorcycle that’s already meant to be the center of attention on any road or racetrack it travels.
