Hello everyone,

I saw today a very nice exhaust for the XSR 700, here is the link : http://www.broguemotorcycles.com/xsr700-parts/xsr700-hand-built-custom-exhaust-system

I am really hesitating to buy it , my only problem is that I live in france and I don't know if it is street legal. I asked to broguemotorcycle but they could not tell me as they are not familiar with french law.

Any one know if it would be legal in France or a way to know for sure ?
I am thinking about calling my insurance to ask them but I feel like they probably won't know

Thanks for your help

I notice that it comes with a custom tune that needs a power commander, after market air filter and intake mod.....could be expensive! You might run up import duties as well as it comes from USA. If they can't say whether it comes with EU approval, it probably doesn't! Looks good, though! If you're concerned about legality, I'd stick with a mainstream system which is already approved - there are plenty to choose from.

Hey, I have the Zard exhaust and I love it. It's not exactly the same but it looks very nice, suits the style of the bike, and is EU4 compliant (street legal throughout Europe). You can see it in my thread below.

If you're looking at any exhaust, ask the manufacturer if it is EU4 compliant, and if it comes with a certificate, with that you should be OK.

I'm in the same position as you mate – I love the looks of it and am sure it sounds incredible.

Don't think it's road legal here in the UK though.

I did email and ask about baffles etc. and whilst it has none, their opinion is that it wasn't offensively loud…

A lot of money for a gamble though!
