I have not heard it in person but suspect it is way louder than I would want. I have the Akrapovic EVO system that is as loud as I could live with on a daily basis, and I much prefer the aesthetics of that design.
I am not impressed with their engineering, especially given what happened to your first system from them.
The AR stuff is loud, which is what I like, I want a bike to sound like a Hot Rod running Open Headers, the Akra full systems that I heard didn't really have the "Bark" when whacking it open, to me the Akra sounds a bit sewing machine like at idle whereas the AR lobes and burbles at idle, very aggressive and attention gathering.
I too am concerned with AR engineering but I'm being offered a fair deal on the Dual System which I don't have to take, they did offer a free replacement can with the older 2 bracket mounting system which I felt should have never been "Upgraded" to 1 mounting bracket, I was all prepared for a hassle in getting them to do anything about my situation but surprisingly the whole affair was rather pleasant, other than trying to retrieve the AR can in the middle of the road, LOL.
Updates to follow, I'm sending my whole AR kit back to them for inspection as well as so they can test fit the Dual System to my AR Ti Headers, supposedly there are some changes to the new headers and they want to make sure my headers work with the new Dual System. They're paying for shipping both ways and regardless of what they find on inspection I was told the discount on the new Dual System applies or the offer for a free replacement ST Range Hi Mount Can.
Lets see what happens during round 2....Now only if Rotti would release teaser images of their supposed Dual System that's in the works.
