Leo Vince GP Corsa Slip-On Exhaust Honda CBR500R / CB500F / CB500X 2013-2015
Better than I expected
I purchased this for a Honda CBR500R to help with sound, performance, and styling. The stock exhaust sounded like a weed wacker IMO and this thing makes the bike sound like a real performance motorcycle. I love the looks of it and it weighs a little over 6 less than the stock exhaust. The sound is much deeper and throatier than I expected and I couldn't be more pleased with it. The price is great too and I feel that the value can't be beat for this exhaust. I would definitely recommend this exhaust.

Great for the money.
Considering the price I didn't expect much. The exhaust went on easily, looks good, and sounds great. I am very happy with what I got. Great product!

Great Bang for your Buck...
As far as exhaust slip-ons go, this was the one that kept catching my eye. There are tons of vids out there showing how it sounds. You will hear about popping on decel, and it is negligible. Make sure you follow the directions, and install takes about 15 min. Removing the stock exhaust was the hardest part. Once you get it on there it is solid, and sounds like a proper exhaust!! Great quality, and another great experience from the guys at Revzilla.

Can't go wrong with spending $200 to make your bike go vroom vroom
Only reason I bought a slip on was to have cars notice me as I ride by. Anybody who rides a CBR500R knows just how quiet it is. I didn't see the benefit in getting a full exhaust as it won't really make a big difference in speed as a 500cc bike is still only a 500cc bike. If I wanted more speed I would save the money and upgrade to a larger CC bike.
The GP Corsa slip on looks amazing in person, super clean lookin' with a nice carbon fiber finish.
Slight air leakage from the midpipe
Slight water leakage (probably from condensation)
The bracket holding the exhaust was annoying to put on.
Make sure you have the spring tool to make life easier when installing but if you are cheap like me just use something you can find at home. Depending on your bike you may have slight air leakage so buy some silicone sealant to seal off the openings.
All in all this really is just for sound and looks. I rate this a whopping 5/7.

This exhaust is very well put together. The welds look like they were made by a precision robot, the whole unit feels feels very sturdy. Everything slides in place perfectly, no exhaust leaks were noted after installation.
The sound is completely different from OEM. The online videos really don't do it justice. Without the baffle it can be quite droney.
well worth the $200

great price for a great slip on
I bought this slip on after reading the reviews and a bit of research. I thought surely you can't get a descent can for 200 dollars but man was I wrong. My order came in and the very next day I installed my slip on. It took aprox 10 minutes to install and then I went for a ride to see and hear the difference. Night and day as far as the sound.... it sounds soooo much better and has a beefy growl to it now where as the stock was way too quiet. For what it's worth I left the silencer out due to personal preference. the slip on looks great and as far as boost in performance I can't tell or have not noticed. This slip on is very well worth the 200 and i'm stoked that I made this purchase.

After a lot of research this exaust in the $200 range is the best!
Had this slip on Leo Vince installed today (had the dealer do the install even though I hear it's fairly easy to do yourself since I'm not really mechanically inclined) Since the install is quick it doesn't cost much to have them do it for you. Cost me about 40 and imo that was worth it to know it's done right. They installed without the baffle which easily can be put back in if needed with one bolt..which is why I like this option in case later on I want it quieter (which will likely not happen though lol)
So..onto the sound..I tried listening to YouTube clips of how a few comparables sounded but you can't really gauge the sound that way so I ended up choosing this one more based on the look/style. I compared with Coffman and the lxil hyper flow but the Coffman I felt was too small which would expose the swing arm too much for my taste and the lxil was out of the 200 range so I choose the Leo Vince based on that.
Sound: Oh yea!! It has that growl I was looking for and I'm happy with it. If you're considering this exaust..I would highly recommend it!!! Looks bangin in the carbon version I bought. Definitely the best mod I've done so far!

No better slip-on for the CBR500R
Sounds great. Looks even better. Installation is definitely a 'one beard' on the Revzilla beard scale (or less). If you're thinking about getting an after-market slip-on for your Honda, do it. Get this one. You won't be disappointed.
Another fun tidbit about this exhaust: because of the material (carbon fiber, I suppose) of the actual exhaust (not the pipe), it doesn't get nearly as hot as the OEM exhaust. So if you're like me and need to chain up your bike to prevent theft, this exhaust definitely won't burn you like the OEM did to me a few times...
