    Just wondering if anyone can be certain if slip on cans designed for the KTM duke will also fit the Svartpilen?

    I Really like the Remus Exhaust, and I know they make one for the vitpilen 401, however it seems to be unavaliable in Canada. I saw a post where the Competition Werks Decat pipe  for the duke was installed on a vitpilen so it would seem that the plumbing is the same?

    On the Remus I think the fixed bracket would be the issue. The passenger footrests appear to be lower on the Svartpilen. Oddly it looks like the original ktm exhaust would fit minus the bracket but not the one linked. I havent tried it but my local dealer has a 390/Svartpilen side by side in the showroom and its one of the things I looked at figuring there would be more 390 accessorises

    I guess I’ll have to wait for the aftermarket to catch up, I wonder if they will at all. In the North American market, it’s my feeling that small bikes just don’t sell that well, unless they’re really cheap beginner bikes from Japan. At the two KTM dealerships near me the 390s have sold really poorly as everyone thinks they need a litre bike to have fun. The husky dealer I bought my Svartpilen from received only the one svart. They’ll have to make and sell more bikes before the after market takes it seriously. Hope I’m wrong.

    I wrote a nice detailed reply to this thread but it did not post for some reason or got deleted.  ANyway, here is the short version. I have tried 3 aftermarket KTM Duke exhausts on the Svartpilen. These have included an inexpensive Duke 2014 OEM underbelly exhaust, the Duke Competition Werks GP and the Duke Olsen Performance GP. All required to bend the exhaust mounting tabs on the frame to fit the exhaust through the space behind the engine. I also had to install a Tyga Header to get any of these to fit, since the 2018 Svartpilen exhaust has a cat and different clamps, existing Duke/RC exhaust systems cannot mount up to the new header configuration. The Competition Werks looked awesome but was waaay too loud with, even with a Bristol Core repack. It will deafen you and I’m not sure how anyone runs the thing, even with earplugs. I sold it. The Olsen sounds perfect and looks great when mounted but none of the brackets line up. I have it zip tied at the moment but am hoping to have the mounting tabs replaced at a local shop. That said, I’m sure other off-the-shelf options will be available in the next year.

    It’s been a bit. I think I originally ordered for the wrong year duke so I had to find that mid pipe.
