There are alternatives between $20 and $500.
First I would do some internet sleuthing and see if a Ninja 300 exhaust fits the Versys. With patience you could find one for ~$100 on eBay or a forum. Or be really patient for someone to sell a used Versys 300 exhaust
Without a tune, any exhaust will have little positive effect on performance. An exhaust would have to be really poorly made to damage the engine, but backpressure is important to performance, so a bad one could hurt performance and be obnoxiously loud... so for $20 a China experiment is low risk, can always put the stocker back on. I balk at the high prices for new exhausts too and just watch eBay and forum listings for used ones, eventually works every time!
