I'm pretty sure it's non-homologated x-pipe. I haven't seen an aftermarket x-pipe that was!

I am in the process of buying one as well but A&J Cycles are out of the Motone X-Pipe Lite version. This one is the lightest I've seen that doesn't require brackets to hold it in place.

I will email to them, but check image, it's made from pressed steel sheet and not from pipe, so i'm pretty sure that is homologated
Also check width, 2x pipes are wider than this from center.

I’m also pretty sure that any xpipe isn’t homologated & won’t pass emissions regulations.
You can buy homologated exhaust pipes, but decat xpipe? Never seen one.

Do keep us informed though. Would be interesting if it is homologated.

Same pipe, states you will loose homo.

The method of manufacture is irrelevant, if it hasn't got a catalyst it won't pass the Euro 4 regulations. So it can't be homologated and is illegal to fit in most countries.

Method of manufacture is relevant !!! I don't want to loose original homologated design where back pressure equalized.

Now ladies and gentleman the answer from Boxup:
Hello,
The pipes inside are not separate.

Einen angenehmen Tag wünscht Ihnen das Boxup Team

So what is conclusion ……..
