Slip on exhaust?

Don't really know if I need a slip on. TBH, the original exhaust sounds good in my opinion.
But I have seen 2 exhausts that do take my fancy:

First the Arrow:

Secondly the Sparks:

What I'm looking for is a pipe that looks well & gives a good sound. I don't want to spend money for no improvement. I have searched Youtube, but would like some actual experiences before shelling out on a slip on.

Thanks for any advice.

I like the sound (at least as I heard online ) of the Arrow and I liked the Remus slip on too. Been also thinking of getting one too... but I already do enough hole-shots, as is, it cause the stock sounds pretty good, had a Two Brothers on my old bike and loved the sound of it and usually drove it like I stole it because of it, so I know adding one to my ATAS would add to one to many times that the front wheel will go for a flight off the ground...

Here are some tunes for you
Note none of them give you any more power (1 or 2 maybe) over the stock one, if you want more you need to put a full system in or new headers with the stock muffler.

if there is no performance benefit, seems like a helluva waste of $1000 for noise.

I'm about to spend some $$ on a Remus. In my opinion it sounds better, looks better and weighs a few kilos less than stock. That's good enough justification for me. The stock pipe is the only thing on the bike that bothers me to look at...

Went for the cheapest and turns out it look great and sounds badass, the IXIL exoval, especially with the "track" larger baffle, because no baffle is deafening !

Yamaha XJ6 : the one who started it all (sold)
Kawasaki Versys 650 : 1st trail and sportbike predator (sold after accident)
Yamaha FZ8 : sexiest of them all (sold )
Yamaha MT-09 : waking the hooligan in me (sold not to die...)
Africa Twin : taming the hooligan slightly
Fazer 8 : the every day jack of all tades

Went for a Fuel slash cut exhaust in the end. Ä184 delivered. Seems like no exhaust is going to improve performance etc, so spend little, throw it in the bin if it's no good exercise.

I would change out the muffler only if I get something out of it, more power or less weight or both.
Looks like there is little of either in this selection.
Stock muffler sounds great as it is IMHO

btw, none of these have heat shields.
My wife will not like that!

I liked the Arrow on my 2017. Seems like most exhausts don't fit on the 2018-19...

Wings, not represented in that video, also sounds good.
