The Ducati 1199 Panigale HE (High Efficiency) and Race air filters have shown immediate gains in horsepower - even without additional changes such as an exhaust or tuning. It also fits the airbox better than the stock filter and seals perfectly keeping the airbox and engine clean.
Unlike any other air filter on the market, with the MWR HE and Race air filters all inlets will get the same quantity of air regardless the speed of the motorcycle, wind direction or turbulence from the fairing. Incoming turbulent air is stabilized and accelerated around the edge of the air splitter plate before passing through the filter into the airbox. The net result is a greater volume of air evenly distributed through the airbox increasing power and simplifying tuning since all inlets are getting the same quantity of air.
The Ducati 1199 Panigale Race air filter was designed on the track using race bikes with dataloggers - not on a dyno using estimations. Due to new materials and design performance has been increased over the HE filter while maintaining the same level of filtration, but for a shorter period of time.
MWR Air Filters are handmade in the Netherlands of top quality materials. Unlike all other foam filters MWR Air Filters are made entirely from special Fire Resistant (FR) foam and use FR biodegradable filter oil, protecting both the environment and your engine.
All MWR Air Filters are shipped out pre-oiled and ready to install. Filters should be cleaned and re-oiled with MWR filter cleaner and oil once a year to ensure best performance and the longest filter life. Filters can be washed and oiled up to 25 times. The Race air filter should be checked every race weekend. Always start the race weekend with a clean and well oiled filter using MWR filter cleaner and oil.

I didn't notice a huge power increase. This however is reusable where as the Ducati one is not and is $60 something dollars. In the long run this will pay off.
