Unhappy Mivv / LeoVince / Akrapovic? - HELP!!

Am trying to make my mind up on which pipe to install on my 650:

1) Mivv (full system) - Does anyone have a view on this product?? (see attached pic)
2) LeoVince (full system) - Again, can you help? (see attached)
3) Akrapovic - For this one we'll have to cut the original pipe in order to fit (see attached)

Need some help here guys...:???:

Thanks,
Leon

If I had it to do over again, I would go with a slip-on... my LV full system has made it very difficult to fit accessories like skid plates and center stands. That being said, the LV system is nice, good sound.

I've been very happy with my Scorpion Stainless exhaust. Yes, you have to cut the down-pipe, but it's an easy job and the pipe fits perfectly. They also include a connector should you ever want to go back to stock.

Thanks guys,

I went with the Mivv solution in the end, a full system which sounds incredible and looks magnificent (or is it because it's my bike? The advantage here is that one could possibly sell the original pipe and get some money back. The price is not too bad either (sold for 700EUR in Athens). Not sure how this will affect future accessories will let you know if any problems come up.

Will post some pics once I have some available.

Cheers,
Leon
