SC Project and Competitionwerkes Exhaust for Hyperstrada

Does anyone have any experience with how the SC Project Low Mount Oval Exhaust and the Competitionwerkes GP exhaust sound on the Hyperstrada.

I like the sound of the Termi exhausts for Ducati with the baffles removed but they're expensive and I'm not thrilled by the looks of the Termi slip on for the Hyperstrada. The Compwerkes comes in several different colors and is small and looks cool. The SC Project Low Mount Oval (I'm not interested in the SC Project CRT exhaust) is a little longer but it comes in carbon fiber with a carbon end cap and looks good as well. I'd be interested in the Akrapovic but it only comes in the titanium finish for the Hyperstrada and I like a black finish better.

Unfortunately I've never heard an SC Project or Compwerkes exhuast on a Ducati, so I have no idea how they sound.

Any input will be much appreciated.

I have the Werkes exhaust. It's very well made and one of the better built cans I've seen, especially given that it's one of the less expensive options. It's a little "flatter" (for lack of a better word) sound compared to the Termis. With the baffle it's not much louder than stock, and unbaffled it's extremely loud, similar to the SC CRT. I drilled a few holes in the side of the baffle to get it to the right level.

If you look at my post history on here, I just linked a bunch of videos on GoPro mounting places. Those all have the CW exhaust, however I'm having a lot of audio issues with my camera right now so the sound quality isn't very good.

Thanks for the input on your experience with the CompWerkes exhaust for the Hyperstrada. I think any of these aftermarket exhausts with the baffle removed is going to be pretty loud. It's either that or a sound that sounds close to stock, and for me, that result becomes one of the What's the Point? questions. I've got a BMW R1200 RT sports tourer that I bought used and had the dealer install a Leo Vince exhaust (with baffle) before I picked up the bike (I got the Leo Vince because that was the only reasonably priced aftermarket exhaust they had in stock). The sound with the baffle inserted was pretty close to stock (and for me not loud enough) so I had the baffle removed, and Presto - the boxer twin actually sounded like a real motorcycle and it's not too loud. I guess the lesson is one that motorcyclists are all too familiar with. If you can't actually hear it on another bike, it's a bit of a gamble regarding the end result -- either not loud enough or too loud.
