Akrapovic Releases Slip-On Exhaust for 2013 BMW R 1200 GS

2013 BMW R 1200 GS Slip-On Line (Titanium)

New to the extensive portfolio of Akrapovic replacement sport mufflers and complete exhaust systems for motorcycles is the Akrapovic Slip-On Line replacement muffler for the new adventure-styled 2013 BMW R1200 GS (K50).

This detailed – and EC Type approved – race-styled titanium bodied muffler is considerably lighter than the stock item and increases performance and throttle response without the need for additional tuning.

As with all Akrapovic products, durability and ease of fit of the new muffler are second to none and, of course, is accompanied with the deep, resonant exhaust tone that is the unmistakeable sound of Akrapovic.

The sound of Akrapovic in this case can be heard via dual-exit exhaust ports that are clearly visible from the rear and are neatly set within the confines of a heat resistant carbon fibre muffler end cap. The muffler outer shell and its solid-weld mounting bracket are made from selected titanium alloys and connected to a titanium 1-into-2 link pipe that carries an Akrapovic carbon composite heat shield.

Friedrich Thomas (Akrapovic Product Manager) says: “The sports-style Slip-On Line muffler for the new GS was borne from many requests of previous GS owners who have already enjoyed the merits of Akrapovic ownership – a sportier look and improved performance. As you can see from the photo graphs, the Akrapovic sports exhaust and the adventure styling of the latest R 1200 GS go hand in hand. Along with the famed Akrapovic exhaust note.”

Key features of this new model are:

  • carbon fiber muffler end cap
  • welded muffler mounting bracket
  • EC Type approval
  • increased throttle response
  • max power/torque gains – 1.3kW (1.8HP)/4.7Nm (3.5ftlb)
  • weight reduction of 1kg (2lb) compared to stock muffler
  • allows use of pannier systems
