Unfortunately, no.

The exhaust approval process in Singapore (likewise for cars and bikes), are that the importer will have to request for all the necessary documents from the manufacturer - in your case "Cobra" to show all the technical, engineering, and emissions data that it is compliant for your bike.

Secondly you will have to pay a hefty fee (i've heard anywhere from 3-5k?) to LTA to go through the homologation process. And there is no guarantee that the exhaust will be approved after that as LTA will do their own testing as well.

That's why for rare bikes or bikes that people don't normally change exhausts, it is not worth the hassle or the fees involved in getting an exhaust set approved. Like your Honda Shadow.

Even popular models like the current CB150R and Aerox do not even have LTA-approved exhaust systems available yet.

They are many distributors in Singapore that are agents for exhaust system like:

  • Titi Pte Ltd - Akrapovic
  • Motoworld Singapore - Yoshimura
  • Motovation - SC Project
  • Etc

On a brighter note.. I have heard instances that LTA approves the fitment of an aftermarket exhaust due to the old age of the bike and new OEM parts are not available anymore, but these are usually >20 or 30 years old vehicles.

Good luck!

P.S. I know of Shadow owners whom have changed to aftermarket illegal exhaust systems.. As the saying goes - want to scared don't mod, want to mod don't scared!

P.P.S. Attaching a picture of a beautiful Titanium Akrapovic just to tempt you further hah.
