Before I bought my 959, I had only test rode it with the full Akropovic exhaust because both the dealers that I went to had that on the demo bike. So, I had never heard the stock exhaust. I figured I'd post a short video of my bike (with stock exhaust) so people can hear what it sounds like if they haven't purchased yet. Here it is:

It's just a quick video from right after I washed it. You can still see water on the swingarm. The stock exhaust is fine for me (for now). I know I was pretty curious before I bought it how it sounded.

Not too bad for stock! I was hoping to get some slip-ons with mine but the $4k usd is a bit steep. I'll wait to see what comes down the line in the next few months.

I've always been around premium brands and their subsequent "luxury" tax, but $4,000 on an exhaust that provides single digit improvement to BRAKE horsepower on a $15,000 bike is just insane to me. I can't fathom spending spending 27% of the value of any of my cars for 7% BHP increase. I could never sell this plan to my wife lol.
