I've installed cheap slipons and the build quality was just the same, with a similar sound, as more pricey slip-ons. I know that these companies are not using some special technology that cheaper exhausts don't have. A slip-on is a pretty simple concept, basically a lighter less restrictive version of the stock setup. So why the higher price.

What would be the benefit of going to a Remus slip-on over a LV? Just curious if anyone can enlighten me as to if there is something better about them, other than paying a premium for a label
I totally agree and I have found no major differences to justify that extra cost. The only difference that you can easily find out is the build quality and craftsmanship. Most people buy what they like aesthetically and fits their budget. I have a full Titanium race exhaust on my S1000RR, which was $1800, almost $500 cheaper than Akrapovic, but costlier than some other cheaper brands. If you are looking to get an aftermarket exhaust, you can't go wrong with any good branded exhaust (exclude the cheap fleabay ones from your shopping list).
Currently - '15 Versys 1000, '15 KTM Duke 390, '09 Daytona (track only) Previously - '13 Multistrada, '13 F800GS, '13 MV F3, '10 S1000RR...and many more.
