It dosent have the loop. To my understanding, the loop is there to help the engine maintain it's much needed torque.

The loop is not some sort of "torque magic" - it is there to simply provide more pipe length than you can otherwise fit under the bike. For any given engine and operating rpm range, you need a certain ideal length. Some exhaust systems simply put that extra length behind the rear axle, which has the advantage of looking a LOT better! It's also a lot less restrictive than a 360 degree loop!

The companies that put the loop there under the bike are simply trying to avoid the expense of providing a mounting setup to the passenger peg, or they are trying to keep the exhaust under the bike so that saddlebags can be more easily mounted.
