    YES INDEED! I wonder if the pricing is including the VAT for EU countries... If so, they would be somewhat cheaper over here. I have heard their pipes on sport bikes, but never on a twin. Need a sound clip

    I have experience with Akrapovič from sport bikes to Audis and Volvos. They are very high quality and im sure will sound amazing. But that price is high for cruiser exhaust. $1k is easy to spend on sport bike exhaust since they are so high quality, low weight, high performance... But on a cruiser the main concern is sound with a little fit n finish. If it was down to the same price as the Cobra "Victory" Tri ovals... I would take the Akra's every time without hesitation. Im excited to see where this goes.

    thanks for the update.

    They sound pretty killer. Not sure about 1k killer, but if it was the Stage 1 kit, this would probably be worth the money over the Vic Performance pipes that are being sold currently.

    Now that is a nice sounding street exhaust. Not so loud as to annoy the public. But a nice deep tone without the raspy crackle. I like them.

    Those are not 1k. At the typical exchange rate of around 1 euro to $1.30, you are looking at a price pretty close to $1900. Then you need to get it shipped to you.

    I guess my point was missed. I knew how much they were and the exchange rate. I was comparing the cost of sport bike exhaust to cruiser and didnt see why this exhaust would be so much for slip ons. I was saying if they were DOWN to the same price as the Cobra Tri-ovals (which are $1k) it would be a no brainer.

    Nice sound. I have had my share of Akro's on sportbikes over the years. Great quality and super light weight... But, I suspect they did not do enough research on the Vtwin cruiser crowd. Not many will pay that much for light weight slipons. Wish them luck, but it looks like they priced themselves out of the market.
