New K1600B exhaust option from UK

Just spotted this K1600B exhaust option from a UK manufacturer, nice to see more farkles for the B

Price 610 for 'road legal' (removable baffle) 580 for 'race' (no baffle), they will quote for overseas delivery.

They appear to be selling these on eBay now and they have more pictures posted:

Probably no in-between on these: Either you like 'em or you don't. Price is right though.

A bonus feature to using these would be having a little better access to the rear wheel and fender area for adding air to the tire, cleaning, etc.

I'm sure a lot of options are coming. The price of the remus is insane and that leaves an opening for others in the market.

Talk about ugly!!! IMO the stocks look 100times better. Of course they also cost 5 times as much to replace. Why can't someone just take the tips off the stocks and replace that silly three hole cap with a nice looking single big opening for great looks?? wouldn't cost more than 100 bucks, keep the great stock look, change the sound just a little. The only thing uglier IMHO is the Remus four pipe flute design.

JMHO, YMMV.

WOW !!! Talk about UGLY. I am hoping for Akrapovic to come out with something but I am really liking the quiet hum for now. I have other bikes for noise.

Yea, I'm not sure I'd look at this as an upgrade, certainly not in the looks department anyway

Loud pipes don't save lives - good riding does!

I just installed these: https://www.maxtorquecans.com
I really like them, I'm an old superbike rider, these remind me of super bike pipes so I love the look. I know not all will like this look, but the stock pipes are way too large in my opinion. The B is a power cruiser so these just look right to me. They are about 8 lbs each side. I weighed the stock mufflers with digital scale, 19 lbs each side!!! So I dropped 22 lbs off the motorcycle!! Sound amazing! Removeable baffels also. Really lets the 6 sound like it should, not stock like a sewing machine!! Love that sound, change the ride and puts smile on when you let the 6 sing!!
I wanted the Remus, but couldnt bring myself to spend 2 grand on some black pipes. These were around $850.00 with shipping. Made in UK.

What I want is a set of pipes similar to the Concept 101.

Definitely different, reminds me of the Space Shuttle. Kind of cool in my book, the stock exhaust is simply too massive.
