The Evolution Line Full System with shorty muffler.
The shorty muffler has a carbon-fiber endcap made of pre-preg CF. The endcaps are placed in a mold, vacuum bagged and cured in an autoclave. Unlike some exhaust manufacturers, Akrapovic not only designs, but also builds all of their own carbon fiber so they control quality from start to finish.
Akrapovic headers have a balancer pipe between cylinders 2 and 3 to improve low-end power output.
Akrapovic uses TIG welding methods both, by hand and by machine to assemble these exhausts; humans doing the work only where machines cannot. Machine or not, it’s still hard to tell what – or who, exactly, did these welds.
Barely visible in this photo is the weld on this shorty muffler’s sleeve, same goes for the weld that mates the downtube to the muffler’s endcap.
The Akrapovic Shorty Full System installed (minus clamp between the muffler and the downpipe). It re-uses the stock mounting point for hold the muffler in place.
