I try not to comment on the looks of someone else's bike if I don't like it and I won't. But that Acro pipe is the ugliest thing ever hung on a motorcycle. Although it might help the looks of a Harley (I personally don't think anything can). Function before appearance. If I find a quiet, better looking, light pipe, I will probably buy it. Until then I will just have to ride around with people pointing and laughing, got nothing to prove to anyone.
Woman love big pipes, especially the stock H2! The AKRA black banana, not so much!

Rick150 Well, how about asking women about the stock muffler? More pluses then negatives in my country, mind you, most men need a woman to tell them what to wear anyway. In saying that I am running an Austin Racing Muffler if you can call it that. The H2 has destroyed the primary baffle but quick repair with boiler rope shut it up somewhat.

Doesnít have a bad shape!!??
I understand the quiet thing Ted but Jesus itís outrageously ugly!
Honestly the laughs the H2 comedy silencer gets in the UK, I genuinely wouldnít park my bike with that tumor hanging off it!
Iíve never, ever seen one fitted here. Ever.
We were thankfully given an option to junk it during original purchase [emoji4]

My 2015 is almost standard but the exhaust and the equally ugly number plate bracket had to go , at least the U.K. bikes are not fitted with the dinner plate sized reflectors , with that combination of monstrous carbuncles afflicting the looks of the H2 itís a wonder I brought one ! Luckily easily remedied in half a day .



Despite the above statement it wouldnít surprise me to find myself bolting all the ugly stuff back on in twenty years (if I can lift the exhaust at 75 .


I could barely lift the vile piece of shite at 50!!
