The first thing my HD-riding manager said when he saw the SCR950 was, "You gotta get a louder pipe on that thing! It'd sound awesome!"
That was in contrast to my friend that actually owns an independent Harley repair shop who said it sounded, "Pretty healthy".

Me? Actually like the volume/tone of the bike at cruising speed.
Somewhere from 55-60mph, it's got a nice, relaxed rumble that's there without being obnoxious or intrusive to the ride.
Sure, I wish the exhaust canister looked better. I'll keep it for the sound, though. Until the aftermarket comes through with something more suitable to the bike than a repurposed Bolt muffler. =)

It sounds fine to me, especially that nice growl when you accelerate. Depends on what you like and how far gone you're hearing is from years of riding without ear plugs. :grin2:

I prefer the stock sound over the V&H exhaust which reminds me of a very loud lawn mower for some reason. Maybe an exhaust will come out that'll change my mind.

I'm always an advocate of more loud lol. Even if it was naturally loud, I would want it louder. I just have a hard time keeping things the same. It does sound good but just isn't enough.

Personally like to hear deeper sounding exhaust notes and most motorcycles just do not come with it stock. At least it's just a matter of changing the muffler for a different sound and there's no need to change he whole system including the pipes.

Glad to know you like it since that's just how I see it, no burning need to change it out. I have a feeling if anything worth while comes to market then its price will reflect that and already I can name a few things I would change first well before exhaust.

Anyone saying it could sound deeper, I would question if they heard it all throughout the powerband, although even at idle i'm convinced :D

What?? What was that you said? I can't hear after watching the Denali SoundBomb video!

The thing is like a higher pitched truck horn and i like how compact it looks. More used to seeing the circular kind installed on bikes:

I've had a Stebel Compact Nautilus air horn (similar to the Denali ) on several bikes. My girlfriend liked the sound so much, we put one on in her 2007 Toyota Yaris hatchback.
I laughed when I removed her stock horn. It was literally the exact same make/model as the tiny beep horn I took off my KLR650!

Note to those installing one of these:
Do NOT test it in your kitchen with a spare 12V battery.
At 1am.
In an apartment.
Just saying... ;-)

I'm surprised to hear that cars are using the same horns as motorcycles, they're generally not that loud and reminiscent of the cartoon road runner. It's more of a safety concern with loud horns and exhaust, a way to let drivers know that you're there.

The loud exhaust is one of those back and forth discussion, but a horn I can definitely agree with. These bikes shouldn't be coming with quiet higher pitched horns that are essentially useless on the highway. That's not safe at all.
