I went back and looked again, I still only see one pipe coming out of it :)
Behind the lettering on the frame, hides another cylinder. The pipe from the rear cylinder goes down and joins the front pipe. The 650 bikes have one muffler, the 1000 bikes have two. This is the same set up for the SV sport bikes, and the VStrom bikes.
The 650 engine is much smoother than the bigger engine. The smaller bike is a nicer ride especially around town. Nearly everyone who has a 650 loves them, even for cruising with two up, and loaded with gear.
They are just sweet bikes. With the SV, the advantage of the 1000 is almost twice the power.

This has been a nice lightweight around town bike. The Vision was over 900 pounds, the CTX was over 700 and this one is only 470. Still looking forward to some longer rides.

90 degree twin. That second pipe is under there somewhere.:smile:

I see it now said the blind man. Looking at it in that picture I am going to assume it is also a tuned system.
