Akrapovič Gives the Latest Yamaha R1 a Grand Prix Feel
Akrapovič has launched its latest exhaust for the 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 It’s inspired by the race-winning machines of Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, and it will give the latest generation of R1 the look and sound of a Grand Prix bike.
Akrapovič’s Slip-On Line represents the first step in the exhaust system tuning process, and the all-new design for the Yamaha R1 features the new-shape muffler design. Made entirely of lightweight titanium, the Slip-On Line gives the bike the Grand Prix look, just like the 2014 Yamaha YZR-M1 machines ridden by Rossi and Lorenzo. The Slip-On Line totally transforms the bike by adding more power and increased torque through the entire rev range, giving the R1 that unique Akrapovič sound to further enhance that Grand Prix image.
This beautifully crafted, durable titanium muffler is manufactured from race-proven materials and comes with a carbon fibre heat shield to boost the racing look. Lighter than stock, the Slip-On Line exhaust perfectly fits within the lines of the machine and gives added value to the bike. With a comprehensive and easy-to-follow mounting manual included with the muffler, this 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.
The optional lightweight titanium link pipe is designed exclusively to be used with the titanium Slip-On Line muffler, and it transforms the exhaust and takes the Yamaha R1 to a higher performance level. Yielding more power and increased torque, the link pipe makes full use of the machine’s potential. 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.
