Akrapovič has introduced two new exhaust systems for the 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 that join the recently released GP Style Slip-On Line (Titanium) and optional link pipe to give customers an even greater choice of high-quality systems for one of the best superbikes in the world.
Developed from the Akrapovič ®evolutionary concept that has been so successfully showcased, the all-new Evolution Line exhaust system for the 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 has been created for riders that demand maximum performance from their motorcycles (+3.6 HP at 13,700 rpm, −5.2 kg / −52%).
The Evolution Line makes use of the company’s experience in top-level motorcycle racing. The ground-breaking muffler design has a high-tech carbon-fibre outer sleeve and end cap, with the rest of the system constructed from lightweight, beautifully finished titanium, designed to perfectly match the sporty nature and lines of the bike. The Evolution-Line system offers increased engine performance and higher torque throughout the entire rpm range, as well as the unique Akrapovič racing sound to make it stand out from the crowd.
The Akrapovič Racing Line exhaust has also been created from a ®evolutionary concept design. It offers a great balance between optimum performance and affordability, as well as adding style and value to the machine. The latest muffler design is crafted using a lightweight carbon-fibre outer sleeve and end cap, with the rest of the system built from high-grade stainless steel, making it lighter than the stock system (−3.6 kg / −36%). The design is perfectly matched to the contours of the high-performance R1, providing improved performance, higher torque output, and that unique Akrapovič racing sound to make the bike look and sound as great as it performs.
These superbly crafted exhausts are manufactured from competition-proven materials and use the experience and expertise that Akrapovič has gained at the highest level of racing to make the best possible system for the Yamaha YZF-R1. With a comprehensive and easy-to-follow mounting manual included with the system, these plug-and-play exhausts are easy to install. Both feature a removable noise reduction insert and Lambda connectors on the collectors. They also include a beautifully finished carbon-fibre heat shield and a carbon bracket that can be used with or without the passenger footrest.
Designed exclusively for the Yamaha YZF-R1, the Akrapovič Evolution Line and Racing Line exhausts will transform this machine and take it to a higher performance level, giving it more power and increased torque and making full use of the machine’s potential. These beautifully finished systems will totally change the look, sound, and performance of the R1.
