Gixxer muffled

The sporty middleweight Suzuki GSX-8R has been given a sonic and performance boost by Slovenian exhaust gurus Akrapovič. The new two-into-one race system comprises a stainless steel header, resonator and link pipe, topped off with a carbon fibre silencer fitted with a titanium endcap. The use of all these lightweight materials mean the system is less weighty than the OE exhaust, coming in a full 3.2kg lighter. Power and torque figures are also said to be improved, with power rising by 6.4hp and torque increasing by 4.7Nm to give a useful boost when giving it the beans. Akrapovič says that the new system doesn’t require the bike to have a remap, and also that Suzuki’s OE soft side cases will still fit despite the new routing of the exhaust, so it is essentially ‘plug-and-play’. SRP is £1370.
