It would be awesome if you offered an all black finish, like the Dinan.

Probably chrome, but I'm having second thoughts whether your current tip will look better than chrome now.

I found out that polishing (chrome-look) the tips unfortunately is impossible because of the edge-design. I personally like the existing sandblasted tips, because one recognizes that it is titanium when looking at it!

Currently checking the possibilities for black tips.

Based on their pricing in the motorcycle arena, I would guess that this will be an upper end product in terms of pricing.
I would hope that their automotive products meet or exceed their quality standards that is expected of their motorcycle products. With motorcycles, each brand has their "favored tuner" when it comes to parts. As an amateur motorcycle racing instructor I chose Akrapovic for the systems on my 636 Ninjas as they were renowned for their Kawasaki systems. I was not disappointed with the products in any way. Quite the opposite, I was blown away with the way the exhaust fit into the bike more easily than the oem system. Once tuned for the system, the bike would do things not expected from a 600 class machine such as pulling wheel in third on the throttle and giving much bigger bikes a run for their money down the straight. The system on my bike helped pair the weight down to 345lbs for a dry bike and increase the HP to 120 at the rear wheel. As far as bikes are concerned I'm sold.

Let's see what happens.

During acceleration (with load on the engine) you have that wonderful deep V8-sound! In the top revs (above 7.000) it gets a little bit raspy, like a Ferrari 430 for example.

I hope my explanation is understandable - sorry but sometimes I am missing some words in English...

If you need any further information, please let me know!

Canadian (British Columbia) distributor would be very helpful. Also what news id there for the muffler system only? Are they bolt on, price etc?

I have the Dinan exhaust with the black tips. Personally, I'd love to buy the Titanium Akra tips and bolt them on over the Dinans. Does anyone sell just the tips?
