That's a single hole exhaust. Didn't the 2019 have two holes?

The ones in Brazil and Japan have one hole

I drilled my bottom hole out a bit more  :005: :087:

Didn't make any difference  :086:

I drilled mine also 10mm(which is max) seems to sound a little better

No Changes from 2019- to 2020 model years.
(Other than Decals & Color Schemes) - at least in U.S. and Canada. I Agree with previous post - its amazing how little some of the Dealership Sales Staff know about these bikes and Changes year to year.

I finally went for a ride with the drilled exhaust-stuned is the word I would use maybe all in my head(I'll take that) but I found the so called  increased torque of the 2019 and the engine sounds more relaxed-the noise level has not increased going through the gears but at idle it was a deeper tone also the over run pop- pop is reduced 75% which is fine with me-so over all very pleased for one little hole drilled

Now your going to think I have lost it- saying how great I though drilling one little hole is- I went for another little ride today 40 miles-now let me say since new this bike has got 74 mpg US every tank  my riding style never changes so today it jumped up to 79mpg for no other reason  that I can see other than one little hole--I know this all seems to good to be true-but this is what I have experienced
