Taboo or Sexy?

It took a lot for me to give up the four pipe exhaust which is so traditional with the MV Agusta. The 2010s did not have the traditional four salami pipes they were actually squared off so I decided to go with Zard exhaust.

I think it's sexy and the performance factor is much greater with the Zard than the Upgraded exhaust from MV Agusta, plus it was quite a bit cheaper in price. The old headers had a HUGE cat and the pipes were so freakin heavy that just that was a big loss of weight.

This is the first exhaust that Zard had produced for the 2010.

Yeah, that picture did make the exhaust look pretty big.

Hear is a better view with a couple of revs.
