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.

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

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 :D

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

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. :)

Oh yeah if eyes were closed I would say it has the tone of a larger displacement bike.

cna't wait to hear her wide open! :D

Which tail bag is that btw looks like a nice fit.
