From a very cursory observation, I think I prefer sans baffle. Because with the baffle, it sounded high pitched. In fact, louder. Like a shrill sound compared to deep without the baffle.
I'm not sure if you could notice that from the video.
But, this is observation from revving in a garage. Driveability will be tested soon.
Regarding social consideration.....It's a bit different from you folk in western Europe.
Over here, people are up till 10 pm. Cars, delivery motorcycles, ppl are still out and about till 10pm. Plus, there are enough super cars in the area that they drown out whatever decibels my r ninet excretes lol.
But, yes, if I were in North Europe, West Europe and the UK, I'd think twice about my sound contribution.
Thank you for the suggestion.
Are you referring to this:
If so, while it's nice. It feels a bit too futuristic for me personally. I feel it'd deviate away from my vision of what I want my bike to look like.
I don't know if you've noticed, but I've got that rizoma tail/brake/running lights on the rear seat sides.
