Is it just me? I am so disappointed with the Termis on my Full throttle. They look cheap and sound like a kitten. I am now looking at changing it but then that is another $1500 (Aus). Any one got any suggestions?
Thank you,
Tracey

When my dealer came back from Spain for the introduction and scrambler riding of the American dealers, He was told that the FT system added a little sound and looked nice. He called me when he got back and had me change my order to an icon and ordered the full termi system with it. I am much happier now. The salesman knows me fairly well ( I put V&H on Harley, full Terni system on Streetfighter and full akrapovik on my S1000R). He knew I would be happier with full system and I am glad I went this way. However I sometime regret thinking about the mods I might have done with the FT. I like black bikes a lot. But it was silly to spend the extra money on items I would be changing out anyway.
Sometimes I still think of painting my bike black.

Hi Baimo,
I wish I had the thoughtful dealer that you have. Even though I have bought my 3 current bikes through them. I would have definitely gone with the icon and put the full system on it. Would have come out less than the cost of the standard FT. But saying that I do love it and look forward to getting to know it a lot better.
Thanks for your imput.

We haven't seen a red one in Queensland (AUS) as yet. It looks cool.

Check out ZARD, they have a delaer in Las Vegas who stocks up on most of their products. They have a slip-on priced at < 700. Sounds much better that anything I've heard so far. There is a video on Utube, check it out, awesome...

I like the sounds of the Termi's - they are not too loud, and have a nice engine breaking reverb.
They should 'develop' the sound a little more as the bike breaks in (only have 600Km's on clock so far)

And to change them up, I literally just painted my FT Termi's with VHT paint (and the heat shield) - going for an all black look.
They are drying now, then some baking to do, I'll get some pictures up soon.

The only reason to buy a Full Throttle over an Icon is the exhaust. Out of the line up I think the FT has the least value for money.
An Icon painted Matt black would be much cheaper.

What Ducati have done in the past is fit a noise abatement valve in the exhaust which closes at certain revs where the noise readings are taken. (I still remove them) This allows the exhaust to sound a lot free'r most of the time.
If they had done this then FT buyers may not feel cheated. It's not like Ducati to make a muted exhaust on what's meant to be Sporty Spice.

I remember reports when the Diavel and panigale came out first everybody wondering how such a nice sounding exhaust got through testing.
