Has anyone else noticed a valve just inside the tip of the right hand exhaust pipe?
My P250 has one and it is open when to engine is off.
Is it there to change the sound of the engine?

Hi JHP, this exhaust valve is very common on sports motorcycles and it is sometimes explained to be a method of altering the exhaust back pressure giving optimum power or fuel efficiency or both through the rev range and is controlled by the engines ECU. How it's used in the E-Pace I've no idea.
