RICHMOND, Calif. - LeoVince turns its focus to Honda’s new CBR 500R with two new exhausts for the low-displacement, entry-level machine — the LV One and GP Corsa exhausts, both available in full systems and slip-on options.

The LV One has both stainless-steel and carbon sleeve options, and is designed to offer premium design and quality at a consumer-friendly price point. Part of the LeoVince SBK family of exhausts, the LV One is named as the European Junior Cup Spec exhaust. The full system and the slip-on reportedly offer horsepower gains across the entire RPM range as well as significant weight savings over stock.

The pipes are crafted from AISI304 stainless steel, and each sleeve option comes with a removable EVOII insert to adjust the aggressiveness of the tone.

For those looking for more of a racing style, there’s the GP Corsa (shown above.) Available with two canister options — aluminum or carbon, the GP Corsa is derived from LeoVince’s Moto2 work in MotoGP racing. The exhaust is reportedly ultra-light and provides horsepower gains across the RPM range. The aluminum construction is said to shed weight and each sleeve option comes with an EVOII insert to offer tone options on this aggressive sounding exhaust.
