Default Considering A Magnum X1 Stealth Edition

Hey all, yep I'm a new guy. I currently ride a 2008 Victory Hammer Premium, but I've been contemplating buying something that's a bit more comfortable on longer rides. Originally, I was looking at a Harley Street Glide (put away the pitchforks), but after I saw the Magnum X1 Stealth Edition, I was hooked. I've reached out to my Victory dealership, and I'm looking to get one even more blacked out than they come. Admittedly, my knowledge on aftermarket parts is limited, but I'm hoping you folks could help me out. Attached, you'll see what I plan on having added out of the box. My two biggest additions would be ape hangers and exhaust. Is the factory "custom" stuff any good? Should I consider another direction? Thoughts are welcome!

The factory custom goodies are great quality, but they come with a premium price IMO. I would go with Whitewall Choppers, RJC customs, Arlen Ness and Witchdoctors to customize your ride, if you choose to purchase the X1.

do a lot of research on parts. There is a lot out there so don't be sorry later. Buy once. If you're going to work it all into price of bike make dealer give you a good discount. Maybe even free oil change for a year. Don't settle for a tee shirt get a jacket.

I must concur , stay away from the Victory branded exhausts unless performance doesn't matter to you ....

I do plan on working it into the cost of the bike. One of my best friends (who's a Harley guy, ironically) has a family member who owns a dealership, so I'm getting a pretty smoking deal (read: at cost). What exhaust do you recommend?
