Ducati 848 Exhaust???

Wanted to see if anyone had any opinions on a great exhaust for the 848. I dont think there are really many bad ones out there, but have heard a few in person and I really have liked the Zard one honestly. Just wanted to see if anyone had any opinions on others.

I know Termignoni always puts out a good exhaust as well as Akrapovic, but any one feel ones better than the other??

I liked the Leo Vince.
Better fit and finish than the termi's and still very reasonably priced.
Really made that twin sing.

Scorpio had the Leo on his old 848 and the few times I rode with him while he was on that 848 the only thing I could think about that exhaust was just how bad it sounded. It ws pure audio and they looked good as too.

I personally have the termi full system on my 1098 and love it, but all the above listed systems are of good quality

If you just wanna open it up a little bit and give it a nice rumble, this is the way to go.
Few of the Ducati guys at Barber had theirs done and it sounded great!
Most of the high end slip ons will run you $1000+, soo this is a good option for some folks.
FYI, changing the pipes out on the ducs can be a headache.
Do some research first if you plan on installing yourself.
I got mine from Motorcycles Unlimited and let them do the install.
I don't have the patience for italian engineering.

It was fun putting those huge 70mm (thats almost 3 inches) pipes on the duc, but its part of the bonding process for me, i like knowing the ins and outs of my bikes

I'm not a big fan of the Termi. Imo way overpriced for the quality or lack thereof.
Leo Vince, Arrow or Akra work well on the 848 with the Leo getting my vote.

What specifically don't you prefer about the Termis? What I've seen of their units have been good. Expensive, yes. I have not had any issues with mine.

I havent ever had a problem out of prolly 15 systems over the years, yes some other companies might have slightly better piping and welds, but never had a issue with any termi stuff

Full Termi's are nice but expensive and not fun to install yourself.

Another vote to the Leo or Akra, the Leo sounds amazing but you cant really top the fit and finish you get from Akrapovic.

If it's for a Ducati Termignoni can only be bought through Ducati, hence the ridiculous pricing.
The carbon finish is not as good as say Akra or Arrow, and on some systems they use a high carbon content stainless and I've seen them rust/corrode.
My 2 cents, ymmv.

Thanks for all the input!

So had no one heard the zard at all? I've noticed its not a big hit, but is it because people haven't heard it or what?

Looks like I'm leaning towards the leo or akra.
