The good folks over at Polini have today announced their Polini Original Muffler series. The product targets the market for stock replacement mufflers and is not expected to increase the performance of the engine. All mufflers are UE homologated, which means you can legally ride them on the road.
Polini Original Muffler Compatible Models
The mufflers are available for the following 50cc scooter models:
- Piaggio Zip
- Vespa ET2
- Gilera Typhoon
- MBK Booster
- Yamaha Aerox
- Aprilia SR DiTech
- Peugeot Speedake
- Peugeot Ludix
- Peugeot Trekker
The muffler of course fits matching engines for other scooter models this however won’t be street legal then (if you care ;).
Here are the official words from Polini:
POLINI ORIGINAL MUFFLER
Polini Motori presents the new range of “ORIGINAL” mufflers.
The endless demand from the market of original spare parts has goaded Polini’s technicians to design a new range of UE HOMOLOGATED mufflers for 50cc scooters.
The body, completely made of steel with dull-black paint, has an inside silencer able to grant good performance, maintaining low noise emission levels.
A thermal-resistant bulkhead has been fitted outside to protect from heat.
100% made in Italy
Public price euro 81,00 + VAT
My two cents
At around 100€ including tax, the Polini Original Muffler means serious competition for established replacement part brands like Motoforce. Even more interesting is the fact, that the muffler is made in Italy (hard to believe at this price point). This means we can expect a relatively high quality compared to the usual China made replacement mufflers. Let’s hope that Polini goes further with this approach. We are looking forward to more original spare parts by Polini!
