The SIP ROAD 2.0: Wow! Who would ever have thought it possible? Our very-own exhaust guru-David, has taken on the SIP Road as a project and made the almost unthinkable a reality. He has actually managed to improve the near-perfect existing version of our extremely popular exhaust unit. The SIP Road 2.0 now also possesses the elegant feature of not only being able to be fixed with a traditional exhaust clamp, but additionally a spring-fixing system can also be used to avoid damaging the more delicate exhaust-stub outlets of race cylinders. The potentially attainable power output of the pipe has been noticeably increased across the entire rev-range with the version produced for the 125cc cylinder types also providing a welcome extra boost at the top end of the power band. The exhaust meant for the 200cc class of cylinders produces 2 PS more power between 4500 and 6000 rpm than its predecessor. Although the original SIP Road already possessed adequate amounts of front wheel lightener we were also able to improve and increase the available torque, with more flexibility in the low and mid range performance.
Jockeys Boxenstopp, Exhaust test for SIP February, 2010:
"The performance, sound and the paint are great. The dreaded gear-change between third and fourth gears is no longer a problem and it also revs noticeably higher. The version for the 200cc cylinders provides an otherwise standard PX 200 with 13.9 PS!!(Standard exhaust :12.5 PS! Respect where respect is due! The restricted 200cc cylinder with 10 PS put out 10.8 PS with a standard pipe and 11.9 PS when equipped with the SIP Road...If the carb is re-jetted properly a couple more horses are easily available."
Scootering Juli 2013:
"Bettering everything for torque (16lb-ft) and with the widest power spread is the SIP Road 2.0. It´s clearly our pick of the crop. ?. From the box pipes we have a clear winner for the standard engine. The SIP Road 2.0 not only makes 18% more peak power than the standard pipe, but at 60mph it makes 350% more power, leading to a useful boost in top speed. For less than £ 120 it´s a no-brainer if you want a standard looking pipe with more oomph."
Andy, editor of SCOOTERING Magazine, June 2015:
"SIP Road 2 exhaust: as well as being a bit of a test bed guinea pig (like most of my scooters!), I also want the PX200 to be reliable. As such tuning has been a strict no-no. That was until the old standard exhaust pipe rotted out and needed replacing. Unfortunately it appeared at the time that Piaggio was no longer able to manufacture such a basic item that actually fitted, and after rejecting three OEM replacement parts, I opted for the SIP aftermarket standard-looking Road 2 pipe. Friends had recommended it and they weren´t wrong; sounding only a little deeper in tone than a standard pipe, it offers more grunt and fitted like a glove. I´m still impressed."

?Alongside the SIP Road there are also other similar touring exhausts on the market, but none of these so called competitors come even close in terms of performance and production quality. Another advantage of these pipes is their complete legality here in Austria. Guaranteed stamp of approval from the vehicle testing authorities ? Road-legal due to the SIP Road, what could be better than that??
