Could do a lot worse than a Bandit 1200. If that is still too much, an older Suzuki GS 850 would fit the bill, if you don't mind an older bike.

Local CL has a stock muffler for $45.00. Thinking about picking it up so I can easily mount bags as well. Like the sound of the high-mount Scorpion better, but hard to get luggage that works.
