Panigale static noise test

I’ve been doing trackdays for years & pretty familiar with the static noise tests most of the circuits perform. For many years I've been running with baffles fitted to 4 cylinder bikes. Last year my 999 was passing static noise tests at 98db with no baffle - happy days.

I’ve just bought a new 1199 Panigale & the Ducati dealer tells me there is some sort of static noise test ‘waiver’ granted by MSV & the other UK track owners for this bike as I believe static it will fail but a drive-by apparently it will pass (with OEM exhausts)

I’m not finished running the bike in yet but I want to see something ‘official’ with regard to the noise testing for this bike rather than just chance it at its first track day. There is a lot of debate & rumour on other forums that the Panigale is as much as 114db on a static test.

Anyone know if such waivers exists?
