Does not void warranty or extended warranty. Obviously use with factory panniers, which I think are great for my riding. I'm adding a SW-Motech Jetpack tailbag to round out the set. Right, Termi Low is the best and most natural looking of all and likely has the best components (metals) and surfaces. It's iconic Ducati. Though Corse runs Akrapovic on their GP bikes, the Termignoni is the proper choice for a street machine. Only trouble is I've yet to hear one.
Why does everyone think modifying their bikes voids the warranty? Have the Americans here not heard of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act? It's the legal requirement of the dealer/manufacturer to prove any problems were due to the modifications, not simply say "oh, it has an exhaust, so we can't warranty anything".

As for the exhaust though, sure. The Termi low was designed for the Hyper in a way most other exhausts weren't. But you can have fun paying for it, I'd rather spend the extra money on other fun bits for the bike.

Lets be honest here. 95% or better of us cannot ride to the bikes full potential in it's stock form. So most mods done here are mental mods, visual mods, or aural mods.

Sure I can mod and get tires, which living in Chicago won't ever get used to their potential, thus being a waste of money in the sense that you're going for.

High flow air filter kit? For driving around the city and hwy I will most doubtfully notice any gains.

A slip on exhaust that enhances the sound of the motorcycle as well as the appearance that you are going to notice every time you see or ride the motorcycle. That is the mod that you are to enjoy the most.

No engine lights?

Easy install?

And this is the one, correct? https://www.ebay.com/itm/DUCATI-HYPE...b0cd%7Ciid%3A1
To clarify: catless was the Zaard, not the Termi. I left the servo intact (when I was running the Zaard AND now with the Termi). In the low-Termi, the cat is in the pipe.

No engine lights. A breeze to install. FYI: If you plan on removing the baffles, the bottom one comes out easy enough. For the top baffle, I would recommend mounting the pipe and then removing it. Mine was in there pretty good!

Yes, it's the same as the one in your link.

+1 to gatdammit's comment. I essentially DID pay (a lot) for better noise - and I knew that going in. The Zaard (because it was cat-less) made the bike run rougher and didn't have the bass note the the Termi does (with baffles removed). I own a (parked - for now) 900ss with D&D cans and I was trying to replicate the exhaust note of that bike. The low-termi is probably as close as I will get.

I contemplated the high-mount, but like you, wanted to retain the use of my panniers...

LMK if you have any more questions - happy to help.

Disagree. I've scrubbed every set of tires to the bitter edge since new and rip every gear to redline every chance I get. I will also track my bike when given the opportunity. I swapped my suspension because it was inadequate for my riding style. I carefully weigh the performance gains of any mod - if it just looks or sounds cool, it drops on the priority list.

I gotta say, if you're just riding this bike for looks and a throaty exhaust note, you're missing out. I'd probably be happier 70% of the time on an SP, but need the touring kit for daily commuting.

I'm done stirring the pot. Sorry if I offended anyone.

You haven't offended me. I'm just saying that the bike has great capabilities stock. Many of us like I said, can't take the bike to it's limits.

I used to ride sport bike and went through the tires often, put a lot of suspension work into my bikes, etc.

This one is different for me. I didn't want a sport bike because I do most of my riding in the city and near city outlines. I also have a wife and child now so again, that weighs on my choices.

So right now for me, I don't see any benefit of going with tires, suspension, etc as this bike is mostly city and short hwy rides to the suburbs.

I would however like to get a steering damper. I've always gone with the ohlins on my sport bikes, so I'll probably get after that here in the next couple of weeks too.

+1. Steering damper is on my short list. They basically don't enforce traffic laws for bikes where I live and this bike (mine?) is pretty scary above 95 mph - bars get really light and can speed wobble with a heavy hand on one end of the bars. Was hoping the fork inserts would help, but not much.

In my sport bike days, I liked the Scott's unit. Looks like the traditional piston arm is the only option.

To each their own, right fellas. I am bored with stock exhaust and want the best pipe which looks the best and sounds the best and is made perfectly for this bike and that is the Termi Low. A quality pipe adds a lot of positive emotion when riding, for rider and bystander. It adds a flare a sportbike should have, and rubs it in the face of the EPA a bit while it's there. No better choice for me. Now, at $1k, a pipe for a bike which cost me $14k is no big deal. The next best thing is an Akra for a few hundred less. In Ducati world, you pay more for getting more. Very natural revolving door. Above all, the sound is so superior.

When a badass Duc rips past me when I'm walking the streets, I get goosebumps and a grin.
