The Tagma Is A Scorpion Exhaust Made Specifically For Suzuki Gixxers
So you want a new level of performance and a better tone to your exhaust but you don’t want to have to remap your whole fuel injection system to make that happen right?
There’s also the nuisance of having to strip the bike down and get it up on a hydraulic lift to get the job done properly. There has to be an easier solution right? The good news is that if you’re a GSX-R fan and you want to upgrade your exhaust system then something like the Tagma slip-on Scorpion exhaust might be ideal for you. This is doubly true if you’re getting sick of your Gixxer sounding like a scooter because of the ridiculous noise emission laws that are doing the rounds at the moment.
Scorpion is one of the best known manufacturers of aftermarket exhaust systems in the world, and oddly enough they’re based in the United Kingdom. Then again when you think about where the most iconic road race in the world is held it’s on the Isle of Man – the UK has had a long tradition of motorcycle road racing. Anyways Scorpion have been producing cans for bikes for over 20 years, so you’re getting a product that’s been made and tested by some of the very best in the business.
A Scorpion Exhaust For Gixxers Only
The Tagma slip-on Scorpion exhaust was made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the GSX-R range of bikes, better known as Gixxers (or the Jigsaw) by their owners. This short profile exhaust is perfect for Gixxers made between 2005 and 2010, and it comfortably fits the 600, 750 and 1,000cc models without any modifications to the bike being needed.
The Scorpion Tagma takes the classic Gixxer engine tone and makes it even better, plus you’ll also get to enjoy a power boost because of the fact this can is designed specifically for the GSXR range – they’re even dyno tested before being shipped.
In a world of mass-produced, cheap products it’s really nice to see an aftermarket exhaust look and feel like something handmade because…well…that’s exactly how Scorpion roll.
The Tagma is hand built from fused segmented steel pipe, so you’re not going to have to worry about it suffering from a serious case of “fall apart” any time soon. The trade off in the extra weight of the steel used to manufacture this exhaust is more than worth it.
Easy To Fit
The Scorpion slip-on was originally designed for road racing but is now street legal, so you’re getting a high performance exhaust but one that’s a no-brainer when it comes to fitting it. To be fair most exhaust systems aren’t difficult to install, but once you’re done remapping the fuel injection or carbs you swear that you’ll never change an exhaust system again. I know, I’ve been there.
In fact a lot of motorcyclists wind up going back to the OEM cans because the remapping can be such a nightmare. So you’ll be glad to hear that the Tagma slip-on doesn’t require remapping of any electronics, and there’s no need to repack the exhaust when you’re done either.
Scorpion is so confident in the quality of their product that if you manage to damage the exhaust you’ll get a replacement at 50% off normal retail. Remember these guys have been making exhaust systems for motorcycles for 20 years, so they know how to manufacture an exhaust you can rely on.
Choice of Finish
This Scorpion exhaust comes in a carbon or titanium finish, either one of these will look fantastic on a Gixxer but obviously it will come down to personal preference, and whether or not you have custom paintwork on your bike too.
- Being a slip-on makes this exhaust very easy to fit
- You’ll love the extra audio grunt this gives your Gixxer
- You can look forward to a performance increase over your OEM exhaust
- It’s already pre-tuned to your GSX-R
- It’s a welcome upgrade to the boring exhaust on the GSX-R
- You can fall in love with this exhaust if you want but it’s for Gixxers only unfortunately
How much this slip-on Scorpion exhaust will cost you depends on the model and year of the Gixxer it’s being fitted to. This means the price can range anywhere from $470 right up to almost $1,100 in total.
The Scorpion Tagma slip-on is one of those products where it’s kinda hard to find any real fault with because there’s not much that can go wrong due to the fact that firstly it’s a Scorpion exhaust, secondly it’s made from fused-segmented steel so it’s more than durable, and thirdly you have a lifetime guarantee on it if anything does go wrong.
If you’ve been itching for something new to add to your GSX-R that will bug the hell out of your non-Gixxer owning friends then the Tagma slip-on Scorpion exhaust should be at the top of your shopping list.
