Speed Triple exhausts

Mon, 19 Apr 2010

The Speed Triple sounds quite throaty with the standard pipes, on the overrun it pops and farts to its heart content but it could be louder. Also standard pipes are usually quite heavy, on the Triple they weigh 9.3kg!!!

Triumphs preferred exhaust manufacture is Arrow and they offer side and under seat options as official Triumph accessories. If you look elsewhere you can get short stubby ones from Scorpion, LeoVince and Yoshi to name but a few.

The long and short of it (excuse the pun) is that if you go for a stubby you save about 7kg in weight but it will be loud, very loud. You wont get such a massive weight saving with an under seat replacement but the noise will be a little more neighbor friendly.

What do you recon?
