The front section and muffler are characterized by a main structure in titanium CuNb (the same material used by the Termignoni Racing Department to construct racing exhausts) with a carbon fiber sleeve, rear cap, and heat shield.
Titanium deriving its name from the second generation of Greek gods, Titan meaning strong, is the 9th most abundant element on earth. Pure titanium is typically used because of its strength to weight ratio. However pure titanium is weaker than steel and can corrode when exposed to salt water. Because of this, Termignoni uses a titanium alloy in this exhaust system that is infused with Copper and Niobium (CuNb) giving it considerable performance advantages over stainless steel.
The addition of Copper increases the material’s mechanical strength even at temperatures above 1100 °F (600 °C), and the Niobium increases the exhaust’s resistance to corrosion above 1500 °F (800 °C). The increased mechanical properties not only greatly increase the lifespan of the exhaust, but also allow for a thinner tube wall that reduces weight and improves exhaust gas flow. Because of these characteristics, similar titanium alloys are used in commercial aircraft, the international space station, Formula 1, and NASCAR.
The performance enhancement and weight savings are inherent to our racing character. Offering an even more powerful driving experience, coupled with our unmistakable #italiansound, to make your bike unique.
