HP Corse

Hydroformed FTR 1200 Double Muffler

Noted Italian performance exhaust manufacturer HP Corse has introduced a homologated (EC- approved) dual muffler slip-on for the Indian FTR 1200.
HP Corse specializes in hydroforming, and that is how the unique shapes and radii of the new HYDROFORM-SHORT series application for the FTR V-twin has been achieved - the results of the hydroforming process are said to include precision manufacturing and smoothest possible air flow.

The shape, curves and variable geometry internal diameters produce a largely weld-free, lighter weight reduced sheet thickness that is mechanically very rigid. Two versions of the HYDROFORM-SHORT double exhaust are available, one Euro 4 approved, and the other racing.
The homologated version has the dB killer and keeps the original catalyst, with replacement fittings between the catalyst and the double exhaust made in-house by HP Corse in steel. "A beautiful carbon cover partially covers the catalyst and fittings and guides the eye towards the two beautiful superimposed exhausts that completely change the rear styling of the FTR - making for a unique and performance oriented Italian styled layout."
The racing version eliminates the catalyst "for an even more powerful engine." A laser engraved logo is dedicated to the Indian, and differs slightly from the usual HP Corse logo. A black ceramic version will also be available.
