Akrapovič has launched an all-new exhaust for the 2021 Yamaha R7 with the introduction of the Racing Line (Titanium) into the Slovenian company’s product range.
Constructed with a high-grade, lightweight titanium outer sleeve and end-cap for the muffler, allied to a stainless-steel link pipe and headers, this latest product from Akrapovič weighs in at 0.7 kg lighter than the standard stock exhaust. The innovative design is an EC/ECE type-approved complete exhaust system, with a catalytic converter included in the package, allowing the system to comply with the current Euro 5 approvals. This type-approved version adds an increase in performance of 1.5 kW (2.0 hp) at 9,200 rpm, and there is an added +1.1 Nm at 5,000 rpm when tested on the Akrapovič dyno against a standard stock exhaust. A distinctive deep and vivid Akrapovič sound rounds out the package, perfectly tuned to match the bike’s sporting credentials.
Shadowing the look of the Yamaha R6 and R1 Akrapovič exhaust systems, with the same muffler shape but a smaller volume, the Racing Line (Titanium) has been designed to perfectly harmonize with the bike’s lines. The pre-muffler is located under the main body of the bike and is hidden by the fairing, leaving the muffler to exit on the right side of the machine, where an exquisite hand-crafted carbon-fibre heatshield adds to the aesthetic value of the exhaust.
The launch of the Racing Line (Titanium) comes hot on the heels of Toprak Razgatlioğlu of the Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK team winning the 2021 WorldSBK championship on an Akrapovič-equipped Yamaha R1. This new system for the R7 shares a similar design to the version on the WorldSBK–winning machine, and there is also an option to give the bike even more of a racing look with the addition of a muffler bracket in black-coated aluminium for the version of the R7 without the passenger foot-pegs.
