Well......have to admit that - after taking it for a few rides - it is a little loud for me.
There's probably a lot of people out there that would think I'm mad, but I usually take my daughter for a ride and it does get a little noisy. I'm after something a bit more subtle.
It's funny that quite a few people warned me off the Trumpy pipes saying they weren't loud enough......considering my options.
I purchased my 06 with these pipes on the bike. The dealer says they are D&H made for the Triumph America and are very loud.
My BC Bombers should arrive today. I'll fit them on tomorrow morning and update you on the loudness factor.
I bought my 2012 Speedy with the Tors installed by the dealer and feel they are to loud for me also. I thought they would sound the same as the Tors I bought for my 2009 Bonnie SE. Boy was I wrong. The SE Tors were nice and throaty on takeoff but very acceptable at idle and cruise speeds. The ones on my Speedy are just to loud at all speeds for me. Guess I'm just to old for that much noise. Would love to sell them for $190.00 + shipping.
I have 4" baffles in mine right now, it makes all the difference. I drilled a 4mm hole thru the header pipe and also the baffle end to secure them with an M4 screw and nut. You have to use a countersunk screw and a bigger drill bit (M6) to make a slight counterbore in the header pipe. It's an easy job.
If you do it and want a little more silencing, you can always wrap the baffles. I did that too, but most of the wadding got blown away eventually. The bike runs fine either way, the baffles do not seem to cause any excess restriction. I tried the 8" baffles too, and they did screw up the running.
This is what I have, something like this. You would need the 42mm diameter baffles.
ps Just a thought, with a 2010 bike you may have catastrophic converters in the headers, so there may not be enough clearance for these.
