The Evolution Line Kit delivers higher performance that has been tested on real race tracks and is now offered to a larger audience. The new exhaust system is intended for use with existing Yamaha Racing Kit components for both track enthusiasts and racers.

Those who are thinking about going all the way in the exhaust tuning process will appreciate the Evolution Line Kit. Installing it on an R1 adds increased power across the entire rev range, higher torque, and improved throttle response for more precise acceleration in any section of the circuit.Adds real-world WSBK grunt to your R1
At the same time, the new R1 Evolution Line Kit complies with the FIM noise regulations that apply to the World Superbike series. In terms of outright performance, Akrapovic has not released yet any figures, but the weight saving makes us believe the Evolution Line Kit will be a blast.

The Evolution Line Kit is crafted from high-grade titanium and is therefore 60% lighter than the stock exhaust of the R1. The new Akrapovic exhaust system shaves off 5.8 kg (12.8 lb) from the bike.

And because all Akrapovic exhausts also look sharp, the R1 Evolution Line Kit got a specially-designed carbon fiber heat shield that integrates marvelously with the lines of the bike.

No price or availability have transpired to the media at the time of writing, but we'll keep an eye on this and let you know more as soon as news surfaces. Until then, enjoy some killer Yamaha action with this 2015 YZF-R1M covering a Nissan R35 GT-R in shame.
