Vance & Hines to Debut New PCX Products at Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 

Exhaust system changes improve torque delivery, reduce heat and include catalyst.

Vance & Hines will debut new Power Chamber Exhaust (PCX) versions of its most popular exhaust systems at the Sturgis Rally starting this week. The company’s new PCX technology delivers higher performance and rider comfort while retaining the popular style of Vance & Hines exhaust systems. The extensive launch impacts sixteen different part numbers and includes top-selling styles, including Vance & Hines Power Duals, Big Radius, Shortshots Staggered and Big Shots Staggered. The inclusion of a catalyst ensures EPA emissions compliance on all PCX systems. 

The Vance & Hines’ exclusive Power Chamber Exhaust technology uses a high-flow double-matrix catalyst that improves torque delivery through the mid-range RPM, which delivers more responsive acceleration. The catalyst positioning is deeper into the exhaust system, moving catalyst heat further away from the rider and improving rider comfort over a stock system. The new technology produces an even deeper, full-throated rumble while retaining the sculpted styling of each of the exhaust systems. 

“The whole team from Vance & Hines is thrilled to launch the new PCX technology at Sturgis; this is a huge moment for our company,” said Vance & Hines President and CEO Mike Kennedy.  “Our technology delivers exactly what riders have asked for: more torque and less heat.”  

PCX technology-equipped exhaust systems will be sold at the two Vance & Hines locations at the Sturgis Rally, which starts this week. Company staff will show all of Vance & Hines’ top products at both Black Hills Harley-Davidson in Rapid City, South Dakota, and at J&P Cycles in Sturgis, South Dakota. In addition to exhaust systems, the show trucks will feature the expanding line of VO2 Air Intake products and the FP4 engine management system introduced earlier this year. 

PCX Systems will replace previous versions in the company’s product portfolio.

RT Exhaust

Sawicki Speed has introduced the “RT” line of exhaust systems for Harley-Davidsons and Indian Motorcycles.

Royal-T Racing founder Patrick Tilbury made a name for himself as lead fabricator for Jesse James’s Austin Speed Shop. His love for motorcycle racing and desire to blend performance with aesthetics led to the pie-cut welded muffler and CNC’d end cap that Royal-T became famous for. Sawicki Speed’s parent company, Proto Titan, was already manufacturing the final rounds of exhausts for Royal-T when they made the bold choice to acquire the design rights and include it in Sawicki Speed's lineup of performance exhaust offerings.
