Upgrading 2014 to 2018 DL1000 - slip on muffler question

Hi All,
I'm in the process of trading my 2014 Vee for a new one.
Wondering whether the MIVV stainless slip on muffler I have on my current bike will transfer to the new one?

The Mivv is great -- excellent sound, slightly lighter, slightly more power and torque, and about half the price of other competing slip ons on the market. Delivered from Italy.

Sales guy says no problem -- engines are similar enough and the Lambda sensors will pick up on any tune issues.
If so, I can slot the old original muffler back on the old bike before trade and slip the stainless onto the new one.
Is this true, or am I better off getting a new one, specific to the new bike (which is likely to be virtually the same in any case) ?
