european style quiet exhaust

without mentioning the 3 iconic letters of quiet 2 wheel motoring, is there a replacement exhaust for the 1000 vstrom. Simiiar to the german original?. Perhaps the stock on the new zux is okz

Quieter than a stock DL1000? Perhaps a bicycle but test it first

Why quiet? Are you a serial killer? Don't you want to save lives?

On that theme. If "loud pipes save lives" is true, how come so many thousands of BMW and Gold Wing riders survive?

"Here I come make sure that you look at me" is a better slogan perhaps.

Coops.

I have a yoshi pipe (baffle removed) and stock collector and it sounds nice! Definitely louder!

I would guess that the 'character' of the sound is probably dictated by the engine. I doubt you could make a v-twin sound like a boxer by changing the exhaust.
