The latest LeoVince Scoot offering, the Vintage Exhaust, was done with the idea of combining a classic LeoVince design with the latest materials and technology. The silencer and manifold are made entirely from AISI 304 stainless steel and then a fully chromed casing finishes the details of the exterior. The sound, which passes through both a chamber exhaust and LeoVince packing material, is quiet, European sound level approved. The new product line starts off with top of the range GTS 300 version and the GTV/GTS versions for 125 and 250cc engines will soon be available.
