Vance & Hines Torquer 450 Mufflers Offer Superior Sound for Milwaukee 8 Tourers

Nobody loves the sound and feel of a Harley-Davidson Milwaukee 8 motor more than Hall of Fame drag racer Terry Vance. So, when consumers told him they wanted better sound from their Harley touring bike’s exhaust, the company he founded went after the solution.

Nobody loves the sound and feel of a Harley-Davidson Milwaukee 8 motor more than Hall of Fame drag racer Terry Vance. So, when consumers told him they wanted better sound from their Harley touring bike’s exhaust, the company he founded went after the solution. The result, the Vance & Hines Torquer 450 Slip-On muffler. It delivers superior sound, improved horsepower and torque and it’s designed to be used with stock exhaust headers, which many riders choose to keep on their bikes.

“On my annual trip to the Sturgis rally, other riders told me they couldn’t find slip-ons that delivered great sound,” said Vance. “We needed to reinvent the 4.5-inch category.”

“I gave the challenge to our Engineering Team, and they needed to invent new baffles to do it,” continued Vance & Hines President Mike Kennedy. “Now we offer the best sounding M8 slip-ons in the market and we can build them at Vance & Hines for a great price. That’s pretty cool.”

The Torquer 450 slip-ons are the newest entry into the 4.5-inch diameter segment of the exhaust market. The 50-state emission compliant slip-on mufflers deliver superior sound and improved horsepower and torque, the best performance of any Vance & Hines slip-on exhaust. 

Vance & Hines developed the new free-flowing LS-275 baffle (patent pending) specifically to address the concerns of owners of Milwaukee 8-powered Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Design and manufacturing of the Torquer 450 takes place in the company’s plant in Santa Fe Springs CA. 

Style is important to every rider, so the new mufflers were designed with maximum visual impact. Featuring a huge 4.5-inch diameter slip-on and new, stylized, billet end caps, the exhaust makes a visual statement along with a deep, throaty sound.  

Pricing on the Torquer 450 is a winner, too. At $599(US) for Chrome and $649(US) for black, the new slip-ons are the lowest price of any 4.5-inch pipe in the industry. 

Vance & Hines is a manufacturing and product development company that teams up with distribution partners and OEMs to reach our customers. Torquer 450’s are available through distributor partners in the USA and abroad. Vance & Hines offers product displays and point of sale materials to dealers through their distribution partners.
