That choice is very difficult, I've ridden my first CT for three years with the original Honda can.
Now on my new CT I'm also looking for a replacement one with a bit more rough sound and better looks.
My new can has to be black or Carbon, because I don't like the chrome can near the black frame.
I've judged a lot of them and the finalist are Remus Okami | Leovince | Bodis.
The Bodis (€720,-) is something special and gives the bike a complete other look.
Leo (€379) is nice but nothing special, good price, almost as heavy as the Honda
Remus carbon (€529) is nice and very light weight.

I think the Bodis will become the one, not sure yet...  :155:

 Whatever floats your boat and what you can afford. They may save a bit of weight and sound better but none of them are going to improve perfomance. So, if you like the sound and looks , buy it. To conclude, a £600 Akropovic will probably not sound any better than a multitude of cans half that price. I think it's a snob thing. Only my opinion!

Thanks superjeap I have a Remus on my FZ1 and must say the roar and pops put a huge smile on my face, especially letting it free Rev near the window of an inconsiderate driver. They leap a mile!
should get my CT this week and rather hoping I can get the same mod over what I felt was a very subdued stock can.
I too love the bodis a great look.  Any idea if it will sit happy with GIVI outbacks?
Are there any decent sound comparisons?

Sound?

Here is mine a few years ago with a Leo Vince can on it.

I went for the LV for looks (pacman sticker now removed!) and being very light. Bought it before I had the bike. :001:
