Dortmund motor fair, much to see and admire…
It was crowded on the Motor fair in Dortmund. With approximately 500 exhibitors there was plenty to see and buy for everyone. Bos Exhausts had much to offer, including new exhaust systems for the KTM Super Adventure and the KTM 1290 Superduke, BMW S1000 R and even for the F750 GS and 850 GS. (For more info, check out our news letters above).

Proud to be part of the BMW Scrambler project by Van Harten Performance!
Old times not only relive, but also converge with contemporary essentials in this BMW R nineT Scrambler project.
The result is amazing looking, strong and solid bike and a fantastic exhausts system.
The facts behind the Euro 4 standard for motorcycles
All new models of 125 cc and up must comply with the Euro 4 regulations as of the 1st of January 2016. For existing Euro 3 models manufacturers have two options: either they adjust the model in question before the 1st of January 2017 to create a Euro 4 model or they catalogue the individual model as a predictive model and they have until the 31st of December 2018 to sell their stock -under certain conditions-.
This means that the dynamic noise must be reduced by Euro 4 with a few dB (A). Your Euro 3 muffler was allowed to make up to 80 dB (A), this is now reduced to 77 dB (A).
The well-known (removable) Db-eaters are not allowed anymore. A Db-eater must be permanently attached now, so that you have to seriously damage your exhaust to remove the Db-eater. The widely used excuse to the police: “Sorry, my Db-eater was really installed and must have fallen during the ride!” is no longer possible!
And then, the electronically controlled valves. This may be used, provided that they always work properly and are not installed with a ‘test cycle’ recognition. Electronics can recognize a ‘test cycle’ and then switch to a special program in which the valve closes and thus is suddenly much quieter. In the media, this software has become known as the ‘tamper software’.
For us as an exhaust manufacturer any new standard means a new set of challenges. Besides all modifications to produce a beautiful and better sounding exhaust, inspections have become more complicated and a costly procedure. Each new exhaust undergoes a rigorous and extensive sound test on special asphalt, before any (type) approval is given.
And perhaps you did not know it yet. As of 2020 the even stricter Euro 5 standard for all motor vehicles will be introduced.
