Akrapovič has launched its latest range of innovative exhaust systems for the 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R with designs strongly inspired by the exhausts used by Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea during the machine’s 2015 World Superbike Championship–winning season.
The Akrapovič Evolution Line (Carbon) is a full system designed to deliver an impressive increase in power across the entire rev range while also improving torque delivery and decreasing weight by over 5 kg. Constructed from a high-grade and race-proven lightweight titanium alloy and finished with a hand-crafted carbon-fibre hexagonal muffler and endcap – inspired by Jonathan Rea’s 2015 WorldSBK winning machine – this system is beautifully designed to blend in seamlessly with bike’s striking appearance while still making a statement that this Akrapovič system means business. With a power increase in excess of 16 HP (12.1 kW), the Evolution Line also delivers a unique deeper, sporty sound to enhance its racing heritage. With the option of a carbon-fibre muffler bracket to further complement the entire system, the Evolution Line is certainly the complete package to improve the performance and appearance of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R.
