It is not an easy decision when it comes to making the purchase of an aftermarket exhaust. The smartest solution is to make a complete research before you make your final decision or to go the easiest way and choose a model that was especially developed for your bike.

If you are a BMW R1200GS rider, LeoVince USA makes your job easier, with its new LV One slip-on exhaust which is especially developed for the 2013 R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure. The exhaust promises to significantly improve the motorcycles performances by improving the medium to high end power performances.

As the R1200GS models were designed for tough and long journeys, the new Leo Vince exhaust was especially developed to suit a bike that is ridden at full throttle. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the exhaust is available with both stainless steel ($479) and carbon fiber canister ($579) options.

Compared to the stock exhaust, the LV One is slightly lighter and also comes with a removable EVO II sound insert that gives you the possibility to adjust the tone and lowers the dB levels.

The LV One slip-on exhaust comes with a two year warranty with registration and repack suggested at 30,000 mile intervals.
