Exclamation Aftermarket Exhaust Recommendations?

Can anyone recommend a good exhaust for the 15 Versys LT? I want something that looks kick ass, sounds kick ass, but is not going to be crazy loud. Bike will be primarily commuting and touring so I just want a clean, deep sound that won't kill my ears.

Thanks

If your only going for looks,sound and a weight loss then an aftermarket exhaust is worth it. Other than that their a waste of money. Not sure about the 15's but i liked the yoshi on my 09.

Yes - the OEM muffler...! Do you realize that on the '15 you need the WHOLE system - headers, muffler are one piece.

I am fine with buying a whole system, I hate the looks of the stock exhaust. Who makes them for a 15 though!? I cannot find many other than a couple no names.

Thanks

That Yoshi looks amazing! I had a Yoshi on my CBR 600rr that sounded like gold.

I have an IXIL SX-1:



You get 3 loudness options - you can run with either of the two provided db killers or without any. One db killer makes the thing almost as silent as stock, the second one is louder (and makes the exhaust sound full and raspy), without a db killer it gets too loud for comfort IMO. I ride with the middle option.

There's one thing to be careful of - the body of that silencer sits very close to the chain, if you have too much chain slack you may get a few scratches...

Thank you ll for the replies. From the looks of it, I feel as if the Scorpion would be the best exhaust for me. Anyone very had a scorpion before and can speak on their reliability? I have had two bros in the past and I have been very impressed with their quality.

Don't see many Scorpion exhaust here. Guess because their out of the UK i believe.I missed out on getting one here in the for sale section in 2010. I like its sound the best and the Scorpions never need re-packing.

As far as quality, workmanship, and involvement in Moto and Auto racing, you'll have a very hard time finding better than Scorpion... Never needs repacking, and is guaranteed for life.

That is a sharp exhaust as well. I like the fact that it only adds 2DB of volume to the system. So is the pipe alwas that stainless color as in the picture, just with the choice of a different end cap? Or can you get the whole exhaust in carbon?

It would appear that they offer eight or nine different options. The headers are stainless, but you can get a "carby" silencer with "carby" end cap.

The Kawasaki Parallel twin will never sound kick ass. It will sound like a big thumper.
