Akarpovic has released an exhaust line for the revamped 2015 YZF-R1 – Yamaha’s latest superbike inspired by the YZR-M1 MotoGP prototypes currently piloted by Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.
The 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 Akrapovic exhaust slip-on line features a unique GP design for the R1, and is made of lightweight titanium. It “totally transforms the bike by adding more power and increased torque through the entire rev range, giving the R1 that unique Akrapovic sound to further enhance that Grand Prix image.”
The titanium muffler is crafted with a carbon-fiber heat shield, and arrives with an easy-to-follow mounting manual. Akrapovic says this is a “plug-and-play exhaust is easy to install and needs no remapping or other parts. It is ECE and EC approved and is also CARB and EPA noise compliant.”
Also available is a lightweight titanium link pipe, which helps yeild increased power and torque. Akrapovic says “this beautifully finished optional extra includes the link pipe and resonator in titanium and is perfectly matched to fit on the stock headers. The addition of the optional link pipe turns the Slip-On Line exhaust into a full system and will totally change the performance of the Yamaha R1.”
