Urban Brawlers Power loss

So I've been looking to purchase V&H Urban brawlers for my 2013 n1k, but I've been reading reviews on multiple websites that say after installing the slip ons, they feel like they've lost low end and mid range power.

Can anyone confirm this or give they're own views on this? I don't want to buy them and be unhappy with the power loss since I mostly use the bike for city commuting to work/school.

I only had the Brawlers on for three days before fitting headers and installing Ivan's, but not once during those three days consisting of maybe 2-3 hundred miles did I feel there was any power decrease.

Motorcycling is not of itself, inherently dangerous. It is however extremely unforgiving of - INATTENTION, IGNORANCE, OVERCONFIDENCE AND STUPIDITY.

I only used mine for a day but did not feel any difference in performance.

And I have a used matte black set in case you don't want to buy new

No, there's no power loss with them. The rest of the exhaust is there, and that has far more impact on power than the slip-ons. The headers and stock muffler/cat are what impacts the power the most. If you look inside the stock cans, they're mostly hollow.
