Anyone got one of these? Was tempted with a fuel exhaust but the wings just looks like it was made for it. Just emailed to find out the current price....preparing to be shocked!

Had a shortie fitted on my 1190 and yes it really looks sharp, so much better than the akra trumpet, sounds lovely with the small baffle OR offensive with no baffle.
Quality is first class titainium...........ordered and it arrived in no more than 5 days...

oh and you get a free T shirt and sticker...

By far the best looking pipe for 1190.........Was about 500 squid delivered to UK

Yep, shortie on my 1190R. I have the louder baffle in - you would need to be brave or deaf to run with no baffle. No re mapping required if you run with either of the baffles in or apply the Akra map if running without any.

Been on mine for 30k miles now and 2 winters in all weathers, still good as new. I think the prices went up a fair bit recently but I paid round £500.

It is what the bikes should have had from the factory.

Only note is that they don't have a e-mark which is important in continental Europe but not in the UK.

Why not important in the uk?
Because here the coppers can only do you for a single crime, and if you are pulled over there are almost always greater things to do you for - so basically they don't care that much....

Maybe they are just more pragmatic/realist too...

Maybe you've met the nicer ones.
But then I do tend to do most of my miles in national parks where coppers love making life difficult for bikes...
Having been pulled twice for roadside checks with a non e marked can on personally I go down the legal route these days.

Not quite as pretty as the Wings, but way nicer than standard and the Akra:



Cheaper than the wings too...

I like the Leo Vince and the Arrow, but they are a bit long, or look it due to being ba more conventional size in comparison to the ballast that KTM provide

Better looking than the akra but the connection to the link pipe looks a bit shit.

GPR still stands out for me - nicely made, nicely small, super light, looks good.... And I paid £180? Or maybe £230, but certainly no more.
Close second IMHO is the Fuel
Then the rest of the over-priced glamour-badges ;) :p

Fuel cans are well made and of course made here in uk, as Frog says though the link pipe puts me off it unless someone could come up with a heat shield to cover it that makes it less ugly it's not going to win in the looks stake

I'd have bought a Fuel straight away if they had a cover on the link pipe. They're well made and a nice design but it is a bit of an ugly union.
