Not that excited about dual exhaust on a dual sport, while it may look cool, is it practical for most dual sport riders?
I would imagine there would be a 2 into 1 aftermarket exhaust for us to buy down the road, so maybe not really an issue. I'm not as jazzed as I thought I would be, but that usually changes over time.
It appears the 2 goes almost to the left muffler and must split just before hand to go to the right side muffler. Why I have no idea, but a 2-1 should be a simple in the aftermarket.
Mine is loud with the Leo, but the stocker is HEAVY and a power hog. I see no reason why this model would be any different in the hi-perf DS market. They have to be able to sell it and meet EPA criteria.
