I'm definitely going full system. The problem with slipons on the R3 is the big box will always be there which accounts for the majority of the muffling if I were to make any assumptions.

Delkevic

Delkevic (Dell' Kuh Vitch) verified to me via email that they WILL be making several different slip-on exhausts for the R3.

They just have to find an R3 to borrow to do development on, so it will probably take a few months or more.

These should start in the sub $200 U.S. range and go up to around $275 U.S.

They are a British company with a regional office in Colorado, U.S.A.

I have their DS70 on my CB500X and it's great. Very lightweight, has removable DB killer baffle and took all of about 15 minutes to install, including removal of the stock muffler.

I would say the quality is comparable to the high end products out there like Akrapovic, Two Brothers and Yoshimura, etc.

You're right...$600 Beans is too much...I may just go Akro and call it.
If you can hang on a bit longer there should be a lot more choices out there.

I'll throw this one out there again. It will be available for the R3 in a few months or so.

I was seriously impressed with the quality of these. They ship from Denver, CO.

These should start in the sub $200 U.S. range (actually c. $160.00 for polished aluminum) and go up to around $275 U.S. (for Tri-oval shaped carbon)

I have their DS70 Carbon on my CB500X and it's great. Very lightweight, has removable DB killer baffle and took all of about 15 minutes to install, including removal of the stock muffler.

I would say the quality is comparable to the high end products out there like Akrapovic, Two Brothers and Yoshimura, etc. at 1/2 to 1/3 the cost. Unlike these brands, with the Delkevic you can tailor the sound to your liking with the removable baffle.

I'm waiting for the Yoshimura R77 Full System(carbon). $665 but for a full system it's worth it. The sound of that particular system on a ninjette 300 is amazing. Next to styling the noise becomes a safety aspect aswell. In the two days of riding I've seen cars not noticing me. And when even your 74 y/o grandmother calls your R3 a sweety, you know you have to do something about it aswell.

Revzilla says it's a race system. Still I'm wondering, does it affect the engine like in long term and does the engine needs to be reset/modified after placing?

And ofcourse local laws are important. But since Ducati's drive mufflerless here I don't think it would give any trouble

Is there any actual weight savings on the carbon fiber version or is it just aesthetics? Too bad it isn't available until late June. I'm considering installing the Akrapovic for now until the Yoshi's are shipping..

The stock muffler sounds pretty good IMO, especially when you get in the upper rev range.

My only issue with aftermarket slip-ons is (IMO) they look weird where the heat plate is in front of the rear tire. The heat plate is designed for the stock muffler so it looks odd to me with a smaller diameter pipe going through that area.

I had an Akrapovič on my VFR and it was an awesome muffler.
