What is the best exhaust for a 2013 Honda CBR 600 F?
I have been looking the Scorpion Serket Taper but don't know if there are better manufacturers/ products at a better price?

OUR EXPERT ANSWERS

Ask anyone what they think of their replacement exhaust and nine times out of ten their exhaust will be the best even if it was cheap as chips, a bitch to fit and has messed up the fuelling and engine running. The golden rule is the better known the brand the better the quality and performance of the exhaust. Nearly all the big exhaust manufacturers are producing systems that perform, fit and don’t sound bad even though they are EC-Type approved to make them road legal. This is because they are based on racing experience and have a heap of development behind each exhaust, and in most cases do not require any additional fuel mods. Such development costs money and this is the price you pay. You’re also paying for the material quality, workmanship and peace of mind. Simply put, the days of simply bolting a bent piece of tube in place without any baffling are long one. Akrapovic, Termignoni, Arrow and several others are popular choices.
