I'm affraid it now needs an Akrapovic exhaust though.
The Akrapovic is not bad but to long.

if the cvt is set up properly you will be in the engines power band all the time

Sure, even when you want to save fuel riding slowly around town.
That's the thing.

I've had my bike stock, then added dr pulley sliders to the stock CVT.
Then I got the malossi multivar which made the bike rev above 2/3 of
available revs all the time.
Sure, it was fast, but it was a lot more annoying, and the MPG figures
went down too much.

Also, it was not usable on the highways (everything over 65mph had
the engine screaming).

Now with both multivar AND dr pulley sliders, I got the best of both worlds.

That's a lot of money and time spent experimenting, and any kind of
dual clutch automatic or an electronic cvt like the one on burgman or
aprilia mana will always be superior for it's flexibility.

It's a different story if you care only about performance, that's easy to
do. But then again, buying a scooter if you only care about that was a
mistake in the first place.

Akrapovic is probably the best out there, but if you're after looks, then it
doesn't really matter which one you choose, both of these are well known
and proven products.

Yes, difficult choice. Go with the Termignoni and remove the coloured sticker - as it is more in keeping with what you are trying to do with the bike.

I also think termignoni is the best choise....full carbon.

And the sticker will have to go.

I think the last time I saw a termignoni exhaust system on a Ducati Streetfighter, the logo on the can was riveted on like the Yoshimura exhausts instead of a removable sticker. Not sure if the ones for the tmax are stickers or not though.

just order some carbon fiber sticker and cover the logo if you hate it that much. haha.
Awesome Tmax nevertheless! I can't wait till Yamaha USA brings the Tmax 530 to America. I will put my Burgman 400 up for sale as soon as I hear the good news.
