Guys,

I noticed on the MV Agusta website for the US that it says this about the four exhaust tips:

"The 4 “outlets” under the tail section have been redesigned and are removable offering the possibility of being personalised with MV aftermarket accessories."

Not wanting to start any flame wars, but, I actually prefer the look of the earlier F4's that had just four bare metal exhaust tips coming out and not some gray plastic protectors that are pop-riveted on.

If these are actually removable, how do you get them off and what is underneath? Also, I have never seen or heard of any "MV aftermarket accessories" for the exhaust.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

The Tom

I think that MV may have a plan to release some aftermarked tips later on. I was hoping that they would come out with some carbon ones, that won't blister up. I don't really want to buy the RG4 system, but the tips are nice.

BTW, I love the quad square tip design. It carries the flow of the new bike perfectly. The round ones looked good on the older "rounded lines" models. This new one is so rigid looking that round just wouldn't fit well, in my opinion.

I'm sure the stock system can be modded to sound like the RG4 system. Grab a drill and drill out the rivets, pull the tips and see whats underneath.

They've sorted the problems with the carbon. The RG4 is a no brainer even @ that price...

I know they sorted out the problem. I just can't justify buying another full system for a liter bike. I will never use 90% of what it is stock, so why buy addional power?
Because it adds a lot of power to the mid range as well. Bike becomes much smoother..... And yes they all dyno @ 180+ @ the wheel :)

You buy sound. Not power.

Well I'm not paying near $3k for "sound" from a system that looks like the stock setup. It's the same for Ducati, the Termi's look just like the factory setup. That's why I put full akro's on my 1098. However after doing that, and everything else, I have decided that I don't feel full systems are worth the money. Just my thoughts tho.

You are thinking wrong... See if you can ride a bike with a full system. I promise you switching back to your own bike will leave you with the feeling that something is missing.
