Yoshimura has added a touch of magic to its range of slip-on cans for the Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa and GSX1300 B-King.

The extra detail is a brand new finish called `Metal Magic,' which offers riders the look of a carbon fibre slip-on, but is in fact made from metal.

The difference isn't just about styling, as the `Metal Magic' slip-ons offer a price advantage over carbon fibre items, plus superb durability, as the exhaust sleeve material used is stainless steel.

The Yoshimura slip-on exhausts for the mighty Suzuki B-King are tailored to fit the new muscle bike, with slash-cut end sections and a rakish exit angle, which echoes the B-King's tailpiece styling cues. The Yoshimura B-King slip-ons also feature built-in heat shields.

The B-King exhaust slip-ons are EU legal and offer a decibel rating of 92dB, with a level of 99dB produced without the decibel killers. A weight saving of 2.9Kg over standard is another bonus.

A pair of Yoshimura slip-ons for the Suzuki GSX1300 B-King cost from £903.80 for the stainless steel option, with titanium cans costing £984.50 and the new Metal Magic finished items retailing at £1016.78 per pair.

The same three Yoshimura Stainless, Titanium and Metal Magic options are also available for the Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa ( 1998-2007 models ). These slip-ons offer a healthy 7.4 kilo weight saving over stock, with a 93dB noise level.

The Yoshimura slip-on for the Hayabusa echoes the curvaceous styling details of the 185mph speed machine. A scooped exit cone, with an oval edge, plus an oval section Yoshimura badge, makes sure this slip-on looks perfect matched to the bike.

The Yoshimura slip-on for the GSX1300R Hayabusa costs £790.83 for the stainless item, £887.66 for titanium, with the Metal Magic finish retailing for £919.94.

All prices include VAT and the slip-ons are available in the UK from March 2008 onwards.
