2012 CBR1000RR how to get Moto GP sound?

I have just purchased a Honda CBR1000RR and wondering what would be the best exhaust system to purchase to make sound like Moto GP bike?

As far as I'm aware MotoGP bikes have straight-through pipes with no mufflers so I doubt it'd be possible to replicate legally even on the track (most race tracks require less than 102dBa I think and MotoGP bikes are _way_ louder than that). They also rev higher, and very significantly faster, than most litre-class road bikes which probably also contributes to the sound.

There are lots of really good systems - Akrapovic, Arrow, Sato and such.

Are you new to street bikes? All those names Bladeracer listed are common and out there on a ton of bikes. Next time you hear an rr you think sounds good, make note of it and see what brand it is.

yeah its legal and its fine, loud pipes can help driver's be more aware of you possibly/probably and of course the tracks are okay with it over here, we have a lot of CMRA in this area too, a lot of bikes running motoGP exhaust style

Akro is quiet? since when? I have 400cc less, and its not quiet at all.

R6 Akro. Gives you an idea, and that is with 60mph wind noise. I wouldnt call it quiet, not annoyingly loud.

I ran my old CBR900 without a pipe for a day. Gets annoying far to quick.
