It’s one of the early upgrades most motorcyclists opt for. And for good reason. It makes the motorcycle look, sound, and in some cases, perform better. We, however, stayed away from a performance slip-on exhaust system for our Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 for one main reason – almost everything available on the market was just too loud for our tastes.
The thing is, we love the sound of the stock exhaust, and we weren’t looking for anything louder. But, the lure of being able to shed weight by going for an after-market system was constantly tugging at our brainstems. Sure, almost every aftermarket exhaust also promises a boost in horsepower. Which, at least for us, was just going to be a bonus and not something we were actively looking for.
Then we chanced upon the MotoWings Performance exhaust system. Called the Trident, it is made and sold by NGage Powerparts. And among its many promises, the figure 82 db caught our attention. MotoWings claims, the maximum pass by noise that the Trident makes is 82 db, nothing louder, which happily is within the decibel range a human finds comfortable to live with.
And so, we got a pair.
