Concept - Akrapovic Exhaust on new 1000

Currently have an Akrapovic installed on my DL650L2, and love it

When I get the new 1000, the Akra will be the first thing that I get for it.

I decided to do a quick mock up of what I think it may look like, this is not something confirmed by Akra, only my take on it.
Just a bit of fun :mrgreen:

TITANIUM


CARBON



Transforms the bike IMO

It doesn't look that much different than the stocker really. Not for 600 plus bucks anyways IMO (Ackrapovic for Tenere is $779 at Revzilla.. ouch).

I guess if you have loads of extra cash then why not.

Hopefully it doesn't mess with the gas mileage too much. It will sound different anyways.

IMO, it'd be nice if some aftermarket company came up with two small mufflers, simply for symmetry, or a single muffler under the seat. I'd gladly take the latter and sacrifice some suspension travel.
