That bike was on the Zard stand at the recent Euro bike show.

More photos here.
Personally I find Zard systems too loud in general. Here in Canada they are cracking down on aftermarket up grades and noise pollution. We also have problems at many of the racing tracks with having to meet sound requirements nearly as strict as for on road use.
I have come to like the triple pipe look and am anxiously awaiting a performance replacement that retains that feature. I may go MVista’s route and just modify the stock muffler.

That looks a whole lot better than that Arrow abomination. This will be going on my short list.

I'm happy that some of you like this Zard system, but, for me, its design takes the F3 in the Japanese 600 direction. Why would you want to eliminate one of the most iconic design elements of this bike (the 3-pipe exhaust) and cover a portion of the rear wheel that was exposed with the SSSA?

I'll wait until the Aftermarket does this right - a lighter and less-restrictive muffler reprising the 3-pipe outlet design.

Most of us that are looking at this system, are seeking more performance. If there were a 3 tip system that reduced as much weight and gave the kind of HP that Zard is known for, then I would consider it as well. I believe the styling of the rest of the bike will make it obvious who the manufacturer is.... sans an "iconic" exhaust.

If the Zard "floats your boat", go for it. It does look slightly better than the Arrow system, but not nearly as nice as the stock exhaust to my eyes. I think you are being somewhat disingenuous, however, as the best performance value is not with an MV, but with the Japanese 600s, if that's really what you want.
