Akrapovič Racing Line full exhaust system for Yamaha MT-09 2021
Akrapovič had offered complete exhaust systems for the MT-09 since 2016, but the bike’s recent upgrade to an 890cc engine required a new product. Enter the new Akrapovič Racing Line full exhaust system, an upgrade that claims increased engine performance and pure racing sound.
The Racing Line system includes a stainless steel manifold, catalytic converter, pre-silencer and side silencer with a high-quality titanium outer sleeve. According to Akrapovič, the titanium exhaust claims a peak power increase of 2.0 hp and 1.0 lb-ft. increase in maximum torque compared to the original exhaust. The difference in performance is most noticeable at the upper end of the rev range, but there is also an improvement in torque around the 5,000-7,000 rpm range.
Akrapovič also produces a carbon fiber version which claims a gain of 4.0 horsepower and 1.3 lb-ft. while weighing 5.3 pounds less than the stock exhaust, but it does not meet emission standards for street or highway use.
Like all Akrapovič products, the Racing Line MT-09 system was designed by a multidisciplinary team of engineers and industrial designers, which resulted in the design of the hexagonal conical silencer. Akrapovič also uses a Motorcycle Durability Dyno which uses a robot to subject each product to the exact same duty cycle and accumulated mileage tests.
