Zorst? Yep.
But that ruddy whistling sound? No, no, no.
Drive me nuts.

I'm not really a 4 cylinder guy.. There just isn't much you can do to make them sound strong.. I will admit I like a nicely muted 4 cylinder at 8000rpm!

I don’t think it sounds like a rice rocket. Kind of reminds me of a Jag F........

It is a V6, not a 4 cylinder. The 2ubular exhausts are pretty much custom manufactured to your specifications so they can have very different sounds. They are beautifully done...a work of art. Here is a picture of the one for my 4 cylinder Elise.

Two I like better are a Corvair on trombones or a Jag with bananas but nothing beats a Novi.

You are correct. When playing the video, a message popped up about an Exige V6 sound. I didn't pay attention to the image that in fact it was an Elise, and an older one at that, which could only be 4 cylinder.

You guys need to visit the pits at a bike event.

Sidecar fitted with bored out GSXR and almost straight thru zorst.
May be a four, but it is a very good four.
