Akrapovic launches exhausts for ‘04 GSX-R600
Akrapovic has launched its new range of end cans and full exhaust systems for the 2004 Suzuki GSX-R600.
The Bolt-On system is the simpler to fit and promises smoother power delivery up to 5000rpm, with a power increase at the top of the rev range. The maximum power at the rear wheel is claimed to increase from 104.4bhp at 13100rpm, to 107.1bhp at 13400.
The new exhaust features a titanium inner perforated sleeve and end cap, with the outer sleeve available in either carbon-fibre or titanium. It fits to the stock bracket using a carbon-fibre clamp and titanium bolts replace the stock items.
The firm are also offering two full systems, with the Evolution 1 available with titanium header piper, and the Racing coming with stainless steel. The Evolution 1 offers a gain of 7bhp, at the rear wheel, up to 110.1bhp at 13,800rpm, from 104.4bhp at 13,100rpm.
Both are made with a new tube-forming technology called Hydroforming, which Akrapovic claims gives a better flow for the exhaust gases.
Both the Racing and Evolution 1 systems are available in titanium or carbon-fibre outer sleeves.
There’s also an Evolution 2 competition system. But at 107dB it’s only suitable for certain races and trackdays.
The road-legal Bolt On Silencer costs £366, with the Race version costing £338. The complete Race System is £855, and the complete Titanium Evolution Race System is £1179.
