Quiet Aftermarket Exhausts?

I'm not thinking of buying one yet, but when that day comes, when I do need a new exhaust, over here, it's got to pass the MOT test. That means if it's got "Not for road use" stamped on it, and it's too loud, it isn't going to pass. I came across this website that is selling "EC" stamped exhausts, that are supposed to be road legal. I've heard many complaints on here about aftermarket exhausts being too loud. I quite like the look of the cheapest Remus can, and the cheapest Scorpion can (I think you can buy the Scorpion can in stainless steel elsewhere). I've also noticed that the Leo Vince Evo I and II is being sold on here as street legal. I wonder if they have quieter baffles in them than is sold elsewhere in the world, or they're bending the truth a bit. I thought this may be of interest to those of you who wanted a different exhaust, but also didn't want one that was unsociably loud. ;)

Here in the U.S., under Federal EPA laws it's illegal to modify any part of a street legal motor vehicle emissions system that would render the vehicle non compliant to the emissions standards in effect at the time of manufacture. It doesn't matter whether your particular state or locale does emissions testing or not... it's illegal under Federal Law. That said, I'm not worried about the feds coming around to bust me for my FMF Apex slip on... after March 1st, the feds will be lucky if they have the money to issue parking tickets in the nations capital... :)
Lmao, well put Mike!

There is only one exhaust that's quiet with a deep throaty tone

Akrapovic, it also a much higher quality and the lightest.
I can't complain about the quality of mine either (carbon with db insert). It did make the bike a little louder but not nearly a much as it seems when compared to some of the other exhausts (i have only been able to do this via listening to vids on youtube and comparing vs the slip on on my bike). Best advice I can give if you can't find them in person to compare would be to look for videos on youtube with the cameras about an equal distance from the bike, but you probably already know that.
