Yeah, a 90 degree V-Twin will do that.  It's a great sound!  Take a look a
Staintune pipes.  They have a great sound too.  My friend had them on his
Ducati and on his Aprila Falco.  By the way, if you ever consider a Falco,
the first year is the one to buy, they have much more hp.  All they need as
an upgrade is a new seat and rear shock.  Okay, maybe Heli Bars too!
