Are these RG3s with an Arrow decat midpipe?

I have the question out to the seller, but figured I'd check here as well. The tips have a slash cut to them and then the midpipe doesn't seem to be bulbous in the middle where the stock catalytic element is housed. Thoughts?

Not RG3's for sure, he might have just swapped tips over. No cat on there, but not worth that price for sure.

Have to agree, looks like RG3 tips on stock mufflers, w/decat pipe.
You can do this yourself for less.

Don't confuse "slash cut" tips with RG3's Ed. Original RG3's where not slash cut.

The "slash cut tips" fit ONLY on RG3 cans. So, abviously they are RG3s from an 1078RR model, and the cat is removed by cutting out and welding new piece of pipe.

I replaced my original RG3 tips with the slash cut ones. Not an easy job to remove the old ones without surface scratches. The sound is different, deeper, more polite, the shrilled is gone. Any way I like the look.

Wrong, you can buy slash cut tips and install them on any MV silencer. And if you looked at the add, those pipes came form a 2005 bike, no 1078's back then. Do not mistake the Eu3 emission stamp for RG3 stamp, I might be wrong, but I don't think the 1078 came out with RG3's. Here's a pic of the real RG3's next to a OEM set.

I am not "the expert". I just bought from Moyovation USA the "MV Agusta RG3 Slash Cut Exhaust Tips For F4 Series (RG3F41000T)". First I tried to fit them on the original exhaust, and when I found out that they do not fit, I fitted them on the standard RG3. The RG3 slash cut tips they don't have the RG3 mark printed on them, which is printed on the standard ones.

There is only one 1078RR in Greece, and she has the same tips. I will ask the owner if he can measure the diameter of the inner tubes to find out if the are the same.

It did not come out with RG3, but there were slash cut RG3 available as I have those on mine.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.
