Just like we expected, performance is visibly enhanced after installing the new Akrapovic full exhaust, while the total weight of the bike decreases. Even more, the aftermarket add-on sports the same noise level as the stock exhaust, though with the characteristic Akrapovic timbre.

The new FZ-09 exhaust is a two-piece build, with the collector tubes (with crossover pipes) and the actual 3-port canister easy to install separately.

Customers will enjoy the 5.4 extra horsepower at 9900 rpm, bringing the bike to 117.2 hp, and the 5.3 Nm (3.9 lb-ft) @ 5000 rpm of extra torque. At the same time, the whole exhaust line weighs in at only 6 kg (13.2 lb), a nice shave from the 8.4 kg (18.5 lbs).

Akrapovic makes use of the existing lambda sensor so no tuning is necessary. A catalyzer may be required for full European compliance. The Yamaha FZ-09 titanium Racing Line exhaust system is available for $1,039 (€760).
