I've had a few exhaust systems ceramic coated, mainly for aesthetic purposes, it looks really good, is very durable and even when polished, the original finish soon tarnishes on the Aprilia. I wrapped my rear header on top of the coating to give the shock an easier time, temperature wise. 
If you're serious about reducing temperature you need to go down the internal and external coating route I'd guess.

Looks nice that. I like both the matte and gloss carbon so it's easier just to stick with what I already have or it would open up a whole world of expense I can do without.
