World's top 5 worst exhausts

There's little doubt we are leaving the age of the aftermarket end-can. With legislation tightening, Daily Mail readers not going deaf in sufficient numbers and many simply becoming annoyed by the sound of their own engine spinning at an apparent 46,000rpm let alone anyone else's, the first rung of the bike modification ladder is rotting away. A decade ago such a...

How about...

The five worst exhausts of production bikes? Could get contentious...

I will start off by proposing:

1. MZ 250 ETZ (circa 1980) exhaust that looked like a fallen over industrial chimney and has to have an extra metal strap to its end to hold it on...

2. Honda deauville exhaust. Sorry Honda but this effort is close to the MZ. Understand that it can't go through the panniers but it doesn't need to be so big or stick out so far... How about looking at an ER6 type or a Fazer type exhaust to see what alternatives you could have had?

3. Honda CBF125 exhaust that is so lightly painted it rusts in the showroom a (shame on you Honda such a great bike apart from that). Another concern is that the engine is much too quiet - you can't tell its running when at idle!

4. BMW F800 exhaust that is far too long.  Even 6 inches shorter would be better.

5. Honda VFR1200 Exhaust. The back part of this is really ugly and big. It looks like some horrible bit of folded up fat..

(Dis) Honourable mention to the Honda SS50 (1976 era) up and over exhaust - A horrible piece of chrome work that burnt hands and injured people in accidents and was fitted to a road bike with a pressed steel frame (that you really shouldn't take off road).

Honda Deauville exhaust

Andy949494 is nuts!  The stainless steel exhaust heat-shield on NT700V Deauville exhaust has an attractive shape, and goes well with the rest of the bike, especially silver (guess what color my NT700V is).  It could be a bit quieter, however.

I don't care nearly as much for the muffler on my 2006 CBR600F4i (aka Hurricane), as it is just a plain stainless steel cylinder, which does not match the rest of the bike (yellow and titanium).
