Scorpion sertket taper or SC project?

Hi all,

I am about to purchase a new exhaust but am struggling between these the scorpion and the sc project

The sc project has been discussed here quite often but nothing about the Scorpion...
I even was also considering the Mivv Ghibli and the ixil dual hyper low..

What do you guys think?

The sc project sounds the beefiest to me and my poison of choice. I looked at the serkat taper and loved it but the can doesnt suit the retroish styling. I will get an sc at some point.

I am really happy with how the Serket sounds and looks but it is all down to your personal choice.

The SC sounds amazing and looks great so you are spoilt for choice

i am also looking to exhausts, one thing caught my attention is, the manifolds are all about the same on the short ones . only difference i see is on the gpr deeptone, the manifold is longer en joins further down, so it gives a bit different sound.

I love the Scorpion sound. The SC is also very nice however it is a bit higher and scorpion has a lower sound which like!
But the scorpion can give me problems if I would ride out to Germany and a possibility to be fined here in Holland..
I like the sound of the ixil Hyperlow L3X black full system, is also pretty low sound

Think I've decided that Scorpion may be the best overal choice for the XSR700, especially if not wanting to go too heavily in a reto direction with the mods.
Even more so as I've now read a handful or posts from SC Project buyers who have ended up changing over to something else after finding that particular exhaust too loud, even at stock.
The guys at Scorpion are seem pretty friendly too - I spoke to 'Stuart' there yesterday, who advised against my idea of adding a factory Black Ceramic finish (I forgot to ask how much this adds to the price - sorry) due to durability concerns, given the low slung nature of the Serket.

I think I'll be going down the Scorpion route as well....had a Scorpion slip on 'power cone' on a previous bike - lovely deep, meaty sound and top quality materials. The only thing I'm not keen on with their XSR offer is the downpipes, which are very straight compared to the nice curves of the OEM pipes. It's worth waiting for 10% offers on Scorpion pipes - they come along fairly frequently from Ghostbikes etc.

Scorpion offer 10% off for sales direct through them
I quite like the linear aesthetic of the downpipes myself - I think it lends itself really well to the industrial nature of the bike.
(I've decided that the bike isn't retro at all, despite Yamaha trying to convince us with the factory colours, round head-light and tail-light, leather luggage and dodgy flipped-up lip on the rear mudguard...)
