I have the RG3, which recently replaced an Arrow twin can setup. The RG3 is more sedate than the Arrows. I like the look better than the twin can. I just thought the RG3's would be louder. I even removed the cat when I installed the RG3's but its quieter than the Arrow setup WITH cats I had before.

I have never heard the Bodis system (I dont think)

I feel the same. I think the RG3 might be a little too quiet.

Quiet is not all bad if power is there...... obnoxiously loud bikes are a serious problem for all of us.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Ask yourself firstly what do i want the exhaust system for....

1. Race.
2. Track.
3. Better performance.
4. Noise pollution.
5. etc..
Then evaluate how you/bike will benefit...
Get data about both and compare.

I know many people have RG3's...but for my taste they are way too quiet to be worth over $1000.

I like HPE System...very nice and deap...but then again...it's all personal preference and depends what you're looking to get out of your exhaust system.

Some ppl like it quiet...I like it loud.

I have a full Bodis system and love the sound and noticeable power increase, the fit and finish are superb and Don Atchison (who owes Ecosse Motoworks) said it was the best Ti welding he has ever seen.

Do know that they are loud...not crazy, squid, piss everyone within a mile loud, but deff well above all the other aftermarket systems available to MV's out there. I have never had complements on the sound of any bike I've owned up until I bolted the Bodis onto my MV
