HP Corse

Style and Performance for FTR and Pan America

One of the most beautiful exhausts of recent years, the Hydroform-Short for Indian's FTR 1200 is designed and manufactured using hydroforming technology by noted Bologna, Italy based race and street performance exhaust specialist HP Corse.

Hydroform Short for FTR 1200: available with or without dB killer. The craftsman-built 1 into 2 slip-on replaces the stock catalyst and has 25 hand TIG-welded pieces.

The HP Corse 1 into 2 slip-on is a hand TIG-welded masterpiece with a beautiful partial carbon cover, emphasizing the sinuous curves that HP Corse is able to achieve by using advanced hydroforming, "guiding the eye towards the two beautiful overlapping Hydroform-Short mufflers.
"The HP Corse de-cat is a work of art made up of 25 pieces, welded together by hand. Its function is to replace the stock catalyst for an even more powerful engine with irrepressible torque. We can say with great satisfaction that the HP Corse exhaust system completely changes the rear part end of the FTR - making it absolutely aggressive and even more iconic for an absolutely unique, stylistic lay-out."

Seen here in ceramic coated black steel, the stylish octagonal silencer body of the 'SPS Carbon' for the Pan America integrates perfectly with the retained stock heat-protection cover; features include watertight stainless steel rivets - essential on ADV exhaust designs.

The homologated version has the dB killer and keeps the original catalyst, with replacement fittings between the catalyst and the double exhaust made in steel. The racing version eliminates the catalyst "for an even greater power gain." The company says a black ceramic version will be available soon.

For the 1250 cc Pan America, HP Corse has a model-specific version of its Euro 5 compliant double outlet, dB killer equipped 'SPS Carbon' slip-on with highly sound-absorbent packing. Lighter than stock, it weighs just 3.4 kg (7.5 lbs) - seen here in Satin Titanium.

Also seen here is the 'SPS Carbon' slip-on we first featured in AMD at the end of 2021 with "guaranteed increased durability and performance compared to the stock muffler that Harley is using, with improved hp and torque - especially at the low and mid-range revs."
