Hard to tell from a picture but it looks like water or oil spots. Any good metal polish should fix it up easily. In my garage I currently have two brands, Purple Slice and Metal Gloss.

Looks like the usual water and other fluids spotting common to bike exhaust pipes?  Use a non-abrasive chrome cleaner, follow with a sealant product that will tolerate high temps to make future cleaning easier.  I seem to remember seeing similar spotting on every new bike I've ever owned, prior to a thorough cleaning and waxing.

Is that the satin or brushed finish? If so, do not use an abrasive cleaner or anything with a grit on it. WD40 is a good start. It looks like a you may have ridden on some new asphalt that was wet from rain.

Is that a satin finish you have there?? I have that satin finish on mine and will let you know if mine does the same thing.   Also would love to find an aftermarket exhaust for it with the same finish

Griots quick detailing spray and good micro fiber cloth will take those right off, had the same spots after my last trip from riding in a bunch of rain.  Just cleaned mine yesterday and after a good bath it still had those marks, Griots to the rescue, looks brand new again.
