2012 Sportster SuperTrapp Exhaust

SuperTrapp Industries has announced their full exhaust systems for 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster models.

The SuperTrapp and Kerker 2:1 SuperMegs both work with OEM and mid controls. Both are available in chrome or black.

The SuperTrapp 2:1 is tunable and provides a 15-percent bolt-on horsepower gain across the board. Both feature a rebuildable core and packing.

The Road Legends X Pipes, another Yaffe-design, offer that over-and-under shotgun look and sound. X Pipes offer that classic, deep, loud, drag pipe tone. The removable louvered baffles come pre-installed. Optional end caps and heatshields are available to customize the look.

Mean Mothers exhaust for Harley-Davidson Sportsters are serious. They offer a 33% weight savings and an 8% horsepower gain over stock. These are drag pipes with a Hot-Rod sounds that lets out an intense, booming roar. Four different pipe lengths and three different end cap options are available. The pre-installed baffles and heatshields are also replaceable.

The SuperTrapp XR 1200 Megaphone System is a brushed stainless steel, tunable, 2 into 2 system. SuperTrapp lightened the load for XR 1200 riders by reducing the weight of the exhaust by more than half compared to the stock exhaust. The stock exhaust weighs a whopping 36 lbs. and SuperTrapp’s XR 1200 system weighs in at a modest 15 lbs.

The new XR 1200 system boasts a 10% horsepower and torque gain through the mid power range and a heavy rumbled thunder sound complements the sporty and aggressive look of the bike.

All Tunable SuperTrapp exhausts include discs and truly demonstrate the performance and customization that a tunable exhaust has to offer as it doesn’t lock you into any one sound or performance. Rather, it allows you to adjust your exhaust to your riding style. Adding discs will increase the horsepower, exhaust tone and flow. Subtracting discs will reduce the sound
