23 years of Akrapovič exhaust manufacturing technology was called upon into producing the Evolution Line exhaust for the 1199 Panigale– that’s a lot of know how. Despite this, just like Ducati in building the Panigale, the design effort Akrapovič put into making the ultimate exhaust was the most challenging the Slovenian company had ever faced in order to uphold the fact Evolution Line exhausts are the finest off-the-shelf performance systems available.
What is so special about the Akrapovič exhaust; why does it differ from the rest? That’s the easy part…
All titanium alloy construction – only system of this type in market
Heat resistant carbon end cap and protection shields
substantial power and torque gains over standard exhaust
Removable noise reduction insert
Weight reduction of 4.8kg (10.6lb) over standard exhaust system
Every section of the exhaust is produced from an exclusive selection of titanium alloys available to Akrapovič. The complex design and routing of the exhaust system is the result of precise tube forming and surgical-like TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding of the complicated sections. Of course, all done by human eyes, hands and much skill.
As with all Akrapovič Evolution Line exhaust systems, the new 1199 Panigale exhaust is race-ready straight from the box and fulfils noise requirements for SuperStock and World Superbike championships as set by ruling body FIM.
