Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust Triumph Daytona 675 / 675R The Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust represents the first step into the world of exhaust system tuning. By no means entry level, it offers a great balance between price and performance. Each bespoke exhaust is designed to enhance the performance and match the design philosophy of your motorcycle. Transform the nature of your bike by adding not just more power, but also that unique, deep and resonant Akrapovic sound. Whether your choices are carbon fiber or titanium, you can be sure that every step in the RD, design and manufacturing processes of each exhaust has been performed by a team of highly skilled and experienced engineers. Its not just about peak power - Akrapovic exhaust systems deliver increased performance throughout the entire RPM range. Increases in power and torque result in a much smoother power delivery and ride. All Akrapovic exhaust system measurements are formulated on in-house computer-controlled flow benches.

I was fortunate enough to have this exhaust slip on come with the Daytona I bought. It is gorgeous as heck, and the sound has a very distinctive touch to it, I cannot speak too much about the performance seeing that I've never rode the Daytona with the stock exhaust. I've received many compliments from my bike buddies, even the ones who have the arrow exhaust setup. Definitely a solid constructed piece of art, and it will give you that special feeling knowing that not many bikes on a the street will ever sound like yours. Highly recommend!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am 5'7 with somewhat an athletic legs, I noticed that they come in large, but fits me like a glove! covers the knee and the upper shin very well! Keeps my lower legs warm too when I ride on the freeway. Very comfortable to ride in, and they aren't too bad walking around with. I ride with them on the outside of the jeans. Definitely recommend them though! Sadly, they do not offer too much of a protection on the sides of your knee.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ordered a large thinking it would fit my size 40 alpine jacket, but it almost fits... It is sleek and not too thick for it to stick out of your back. It is comfortable and feels durable. If you're a size 40 alpine jacket or smaller, definitely get medium. Overall, I definitely recommend!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fits into my alpine jacket like a glove! These are huge but basic upgrade to the foam pads! They are sturdy but light, and have little mesh holes in them for the air flow! Wish it was cheaper though.. a little bit pricey

I was looking for riding shoes that would offer me just as much protection as the racing boots but don't sort of stand out when you're walking around, these did the trick! Shoes are very stylish and go along with almost all my clothes I wear. Leather was thick and sturdy, shoes are comfortable when you break them in, my ankles do not feel naked, the heel of my foot is padded, and there is some steel toe padding in the front of my foot (not over the top of the toes though!) Definitely get these shoes if you're not looking forward to carrying an extra pair of walking shoes around!
by the way, I normally wear size 11 shoes, but the us size 10 fit me pretty well!
Yes, I recommend this product.
