Does being socially conscious really mean muffling your pipes?
Well, apparently not!
Watch this video from Jekill and Hyde an exhaust manufacturer from the Netherlands that seems to have hit on a product that can make your motorcycle more socially acceptable.
Some on my Facebook Page where I shared this, this morning, have asked the question how does it affect the tuning, I have no answer to that question, however, I can tell you that according to the company's LinkedIn page, it took them 14 years to develop the product!
Many riders will tell you that noise can be controlled by the way you use your throttle alone, and that statement is true enough to a degree, but what about those nasty Motorcycle Only Noise Check Stops where they rev your bike up? Are you going to pass?
Well, with pipes like these one could pass, easily.
It seems like a solution that could offer the rider the best of both worlds, the sound of a throaty pipe and quiet when leaving your driveway at 6 am, or putting through the neighbourhood on the way home late at night.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on socially acceptable pipes!
Have a great Monday everyone!
