I like loud motorcycles.
I want better looking, performing, and cooler exhaust; than factory issued.
However, ass ludicrous and cartoonish as the cans may be; I find myself enjoying the mid range drone, and the throaty defiance of releasing the throttle when it doesn't want to be released and suddenly surprising him with a downshift: Insert Formula One Race Sound Here.
So, for a bike that I secretly enjoy the look and sound of the exhaust (I was also a fan of Buck Rogers): I will find many other aftermarket items to throw my $1000 - $3000 at. Or spend more on upgrading my gear.
When the exhaust is a reasonable price I will replace it. Until then I will nod along if someone points and laughs at the exhaust and agree with them: "I know crazy right"
I will also know something they don't know: It's not about how these bikes sound - I'TS ALL ABOUT HOW THEY PERFORM AND HOW LONG YOU CAN LAST AND HOW FAR YOU CAN GO. And how you can't wait to wake up the next day and do it again.
There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.
