Guide: The Best LeoVince Streetbike Exhausts


What bike enthusiast isn't quick to replace the stock exhaust? This is the often one of the first aftermarket upgrades to be performed, and is perhaps the only one that improves performance, look, and sound.

It's not the cheapest upgrade, but because of the significant impact on your bike, I think almost every bike owner will say it's well worth it.

Today, we're introducing you one of our favorite boutique brands in the aftermarket exhaust market - LeoVince! They've been in and out of popularity over the past decade but they've always been churning out a quality product. They make sexy, high performance exahusts for all kinds of bikes in a variety of attractive materials. 

Exhaust Systems Overview

For those new here, first here's a quick refresher on exhaust system basics.

A motorcycle exhaust system consists of:

- A header collecting exhaust gases from the engine
- A mid-pipe bringing fumes towards back of the bike
- A muffler allowing exhaust gases to exit, while muffling volume

Full Systems vs. Slip-ons

A full system exhaust replaces all three sections listed above. Because of this, there is significant weight shed and noticeable performance gains. It also requires a much more complicated installation procedure.

On the other hand, a slip-on exhaust is quick and easy to install as it's literally "slipped-on" in place of the stock muffler. It'll offer a bit of horsepower gain, but not as much as with a full system. You will, however, get that desirable rumbling sound.

Exhausts are bike-specific, so make sure you do compatibility research with your bike before making purchases.

This is just a quick overview, but you can read a more detailed explanation of exhausts to understand the benefits and the differences between the two.

LeoVince Exhausts

LeoVince is an Italian company that dates back to 1954. Today, LeoVince has a beautiful range of special exhausts systems and end cans. LeoVince has an extensive motorcycle racing history - from the high speed circuits of road racing to the most technical and challenging off-road competitions. Because of this, its high-quality products are true "racing" products rather than just "race-inspired". LeoVince uses the best materials on their exhausts, including stainless steel, titanium, and luxurious carbon fiber.
