New exhaust for Ducati Panigale in Japan

1 of 1

The horrified response to the Japanese specification Ducati 1199 when it was unveiled in 2012 has prompted this revised exhaust system, spotted by a spy photographer at the Ducati test track last week.

The noise regulations inĀ  Japan are so strict that the 1199 was unable to pass without a massive carbon-fibre end can and modified crankcase with a noise-supressing cover.

The new twin-stacked exhaust, seen here in a very raw state, replaces the excessively long single silencer.
