Kawasaki endorse can

Kawasaki endorse can

An Akrapovic slip-on exhaust system for the Kawasaki ZX-10R will now be offered as a Genuine Kawasaki Accessory for the first time.

The road legal silencers emulate the look of the Hawk Kawasaki BSB squad, and comprise of aluminium-bodied pipes with carbon outer sleeves and Kawasaki badging. They also save weight, coming in at 3.25kgs, instead of the usual 4.06kg. And they come with a two-year warranty from the time they're fitted.

not too mention they only have the warranty if fitted by the dealer....

and they are still WAY heavier than other aftermarket units.....



and is this in canada? the US? Europe?

I'm sure the Evo system would be more open.

No fix-it tickets for guys with Akro systems. Get the dealer set-up, then swap it for a less restictive unit and claim factory option.

I think that looks great, even though I'm not much for the K-bikes....

I wish Gixxer's came with undertail exhuast, I'm really digging that look, but the gixxer feels like the best fit to my body and I gotta put function before looks.
