Yamaha R1 with Toce Exhausts Sounds Good Even Without a Helmet [Video]
Here's a nice sound from an R1, at idle and running at moderate rpm across the neighborhood. And to judge better the Toce Brothers' work, you also get some footage of the original cans and their sound.
We totally dig the Toce-loaded bike as it sports a more masculine character with a lot more low-end and a milder tone. And the slash-cut 4-pipe design looks killer on the R1, in complete harmony with the aggressive edgy lines of the bike.
However, we did not like the lack of a helmet. Even if throttling up just a bit on the alley, things can go wrong, and this demo movie could have ended in the snuff part of the You Tube.
