Already caught that on the Tube. Sounds impressive.

Was it pricey and have you tried it with the dB killer in place?

$1,600NZD. I haven't tried it with the DB Killer, I don't think I will.

Yowzer, that ain't cheap. Suspect my neighbours will be happy (for a while).

Shame you're in Welly. It would be good to hear in real-life.

The Akrapovic sounds great and should be lighter than oem.

Wow, that is a great sounding exhaust. It really pops. What does that price translate to in US dollars? Sounds really expensive.

@eikon

sound great! Wish i was there to hear it in person. It has a nice deep tone to it but I am sure once you crack her open it'll be different

You should try and get a fly by and take off video up

It sounds really good in that video, in person it will sound far better. I hate how he kept moving the camera close, just made it worse.

Not as much as what we pay in NZ and AU, Akra prices are much cheaper in the US than over this way. Just a guess but you could probably knock roughly $600 off it.

Nice sound by the way, fingers crossed they do an underslung.

Apparently it's about 4kg (8ish pounds for you US guys) lighter, which is a lot.

Cost in USD works out to about $1,300.

Worth it IMO. It's sounds and feels like a different bike. A nice low end note, you'd never think it is a single 375cc. Sounds like a bigger V-Twin. Full throttle has an angry growl, its heaps of fun. Slowing down from any rpm range on idle makes it spit like crazy, love it!

Ya sorry about the camera, I was playing back on my phone and it sounded crap. I didn't realise it was because of the phones speaker.

I'll see if I can do a fly by, or throw my phone in the tail bag, and sound record.
