Akrapovic Exhaust System BMW K1300 R/S Akrapovic Racing and Evolution Systems are designed for racing-oriented riders who demand maximum performance. Both systems feature exceptional production quality, high-tech materials and increased engine performance. Their quality and reputation are further augmented by the use of the high-tech hydroforming production process to form the header tubes. Beside performance you will also benefit from great weight savings, up to 5.4 kg if compared to stock system. The change will be also visual as our hexagonal muffler perfectly fits the exterior line of the aggressive roadster and adds a clean racing image. We offer titanium or carbon-fiber muffler outer sleeves to satisfy each specific taste. Evolution system is made entirely of our exclusive high grade titanium while Racing system uses stainless steel header tubes and link pipe. Systems are not homologated and are developed only for race track use. Power Torque The installation of the Evolution System results in a major boost in performance, delivering a massive 168.2 HP at 9900 rpm on back wheel. But the increased power isnt available just at the top of the range the system shows its quality already from 3500 rpm up through entire rpm range. Max. increased power between the Akrapovic and the stock system is 9.5 HP at 9900 rpm. Besides this, the torque is substantially higher in a lower rpm area already at 2500 rpm and from middle to high rpm area. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

Exhaust shipped to Australia in six days. Thank you guys, great service.
Fitting took two hours if you include the strip down time for the OEM exhaust.
This exhaust is very well made, with no noticable flaws in the welding or carbon fibre. Fit is perfect, with no shoving things into place or bending things out of the way, a quality item.
Performance is certainly improved, but what is really evident is how much smoother the bike runs; any snatchy throttle response is eliminated and hesitation is banished.
This system is obviously noisier than the OEM part, but not obtrusively so. Below 6000rpm it's not much louder at all, but rather deeper and with more of a growl. Above that and it does rather start to wail gloriously; not one for the shy and retiring at these engine speeds, but one presumes the shy and retiring rarely see 10000rpm plus anyway.
Overall a very good upgrade and certainly better value than a slip on. Would commend.
Yes, I recommend this product.
