My bet is on Vance & Hines to make a version of their CS One undertail for the R3 (photo of R1). Maybe as a single can, though dual can gives more tire clearance.I'm glad to see some alternatives to the stock boat anchor on this bike. The dual exhaust and some of the other options just look a little bit "too much" to me. Maybe on a ZX-11 or something. Dual exhaust on a 300cc bike may get more chuckles than anything else.
I'd love to see a clean looking tastefully done undertail exhaust for the R3 (like the Honda CBR600RR), but it would probably require an entire new rear undertail to fit clean and would be relatively costly. I'd be surprised to see that ever happen.
The side can doesn't look too bad, just because it is the standard on most sportbikes. Still, room for improvement.
Why not an aftermarket underbelly exhaust that would replace the catalytic converter?
Look at this photo of the 2015 Yamaha FZ6R and tell me why it couldn't be done at the same cost as any aftermarket side can? Very clean.
Love the idea of a undertail exhaust, just don't think it's feasible for a company to make any profit. The Vance & Hines system for the R1 is made to replace a stock undertail exhaust already there. No additional re-routing engineering needed by Vance & Hines to fit it, and still, $800.- Lets say they re-routed and engineered a dual undertail exhaust for the R3. R&D, re-engineering involved plus cost of dual cans? $1200.- maybe? I see that happening on a $15,000 bike but not a $5,000 bike.
Has V&H ever made an undertail exhaust for a motorcycle that didn't already have one engineered on it stock from the factory?
To me, the underbody exhaust is the way to go. Just my opinion, but, the underbelly exhaust on the Yamaha FZ6R looks dam good! Pricetag? Maybe $400.- ? It's almost already there!
No pink or purple accented versions.Very Nice!!
Oh No... I just Realized...
My Girl is Bound to See this post - and instantly want one - for her brand new R3 also Fang Shui...
Please tell me that it "does not" come with "Purple" or "Pink" Accents - I just MAY then be $AFER...
Please prepare me for how much it will set me back here in Canada...
Since I know I'll now be buying one - do you happen to have a shot from a bit further back from the Bike?
