The Company is HMF, who SUPPOSEDLY made these pipes specifically for FAST BY FERRACCI DUCATI for people that are not looking for High performance , but wanted to eliminate the stock catylitic Converter exhaust due to the extream heat tha FRYs your ass after 15 minets of riding .My son and I LOVE to do odd/Unique high performance builds but im so happy with the 1198 I want to ride it more than do performance work and at 155HP at the rear wheel the bikes performance is already better than my riding skills . lol
The cost through Ferracci is 785$ and the quality is yet to be seen being the outer coating is carbon fiber ( some are durable some are NOT ) The COMPANY of HMF makes the exhaust for 600$ on EBAY. Competition unit is identical looking ( maybe identical period lol) to the Ferracci unit , but the sport unit has a different end piece (turn down) brushed aluminum AND you can choose from10? different colors MIX/MATCH ect including a DUCATI RED if your like a little bling for your bike .( not my style but to each his own )lol
Feracci is WELL know for racing having won AMA championships as well as WSB championships .
Being HMF is a small company that will even mix and match colors for a customers exhaust , its likely that they indeed made a spec unit for ferracci . But for 185$ differance it pays to call HMF to see if they can send you the Ferracci/no fueler needed unit direct .
