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!
