Product review: Motad exhaust system

1 of 1

Motad exhaust system, £296
Miles covered/time:
Seven months/1000 miles

What’s good? A full stainless exhaust system for under £300? What’s not to like? Motad cater for a wide range of bikes including many older models like my Kawasaki GPZ550, in sympathetic no-nonsense styling.

It looks and sounds vastly better than the standard boring black system and it won’t rot. It doesn’t offer any notable power increase but maintains the standard, usable power curve and is road legal. And it comes with a 36-month unlimited mileage warrantee.     

What’s not? The rear brake pedal touches it when fully depressed. This can probably be fixed with the addition of some washers to shift the position if the silencer but nevertheless seems to indicate it’s not a perfect fit.

The welding could possibly be neater in places. Other than that, it’s dandy.

Rating: 4/5
