Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing popularity of less restrictive system like 4-1 exhaust system. Currently, most of the motorcycles are fitted with 4-2 exhaust system (stock exhaust system). However, this system creates a restrictive system for the exhaust gases, which hampers the motorcycle performance in the form of reduced horsepower. Hence, the aftermarket developed 4-1 exhaust system for the customers who are looking for performance improvement in addition to sound and style improvement.”
