Perhaps it has been removed, it's bloody loud

The photos of your bike show that it still has the cat and the OE silencer in place, so unless someone has gutted the internals (unlikely) then you’re experiencing the stock sound. The pre-2017 bikes are surprisingly vocal (though maybe not in the “how did that pass the noise regs” way that some Italian bikes are). I had a couple of people assume my old 2015 bike wasn’t stock when they heard it - though it definitely was. I personally loved the pops and bangs and didn’t have any problem with droning (but I do wear ear plugs every time I ride).

They are loud, it even had an MOT advisory for it at its first MOT!

The 2015 silencer was amazing for BMW to release. Sounds nasty loud for a beemer. I went through a bit of a trial to get it to fit my 2017 bike. It is smaller and sounds perfect. Plus it has the Federal approval embossment on the inside if questioned. No law enforcement will know the difference between the model numbers in the lettering unless they are seriously anal. I love my S bike. So light and quick. A great partner to my K13S bike.

It is a beautiful exhaust for a stock system
