Way better tone and the engine feels like it was meant to be this way. I wear ear buds or plugs so drone doesn't bother me at all.
I have to say I am quite disappointed with my Akra. Nowhere near throaty enough than what I thought it would be.

Wow. With DB Killer out? I wouldn't want it any louder. A couple more db's and I'd have a headache after 10 mins on the hwy.

As for tone, I love it. Mine growls, barks and backfires. If all you want is LOUD, drill the stock can out.

I guess it may be because I'm coming from an RC51 with Ladybird pipes. I just expected a little more from it.
