Hey guys, as some of you know, Brock has is using my bike for his R&D for the new exhasut on the 2016. I have Been privied some information and a picture of what the prototype looks like.

To make that exhaust look alot better would be to shape the end of the pipe on the same angle!check out the H2Rs pipe

I'll give my opinion for what it's worth - which is nothing.

That exhaust is horrible. The conical, slash tip exhaust cans do absolutely NOTHING to compliment the lines of the bike. It looks like what it is, and that it's an afterthought and just thrown on there. The chrome/polished finish is straight out of a bad 1990s fad that it needs to just die already. Looks awful imo. It's neither a shorty pipe nor a full length. Unless that thing adds 30hp with a slight tune, it really should be just melted down into a puddle and forgotten about.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Couldn't have said it better. There was no "prototyping" or "r&d" put into that pipe like you've expressed in your other threads. He takes a generic pipe he has on the shelf and welds the bracket in the correct spot for the application. You're leaving a decent amount of mid-range and top end horsepower on the table by going with a white trash pipe like that.
