Post Ninja H2's Brand New Akrapovic Exhaust



Here come to go fast goodies and from Akrapovic no less, Akra has agreed to debut their new slip-on system with the Ninja H2...






Titanium Tubes
Carbon Fibre outer shell
Carbon Fibre Mounting bracket

Now the question is 1) cost and 2) will a full system follow?

I'm guessing the pricing for this slip on would be the usual $1,000+ and if a full system follows with titanium headers looking upwards of $2,000. Along with the full system expect to spend another $500 for a FI (Bazzaz, powercommander) plus dyno tune another $1000.

I'd like to hear the slip on without the db killer in place.

Too bad there's no video to go with this but it's good to see that Akra acted as quick as they did with coming up with an exhaust for the H2.

Thanks for the post with pics regarding the Akrapovic Slip-On for the H2, Bazza!

Certainly, a different design from Akrapovic.

I definitely expect a Full System to be forthcoming... looking forward to the Dyno and dB numbers from Akrapovic.

Akrapovič to Make Bike “Built Beyond Belief” Even Better!
NOV 3RD 2014 | PRESS

Akrapovič recently showcased a brand-new concept exhaust that caused quite a stir when it was unveiled at the recent Intermot show, as did the Supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2R—a machine labeled as “Built Beyond Belief.” Now the pair have met at EICMA in Milan, Italy, in the guise of the new road-going Kawasaki Ninja H2 machine and Akrapovič’s production version of its latest Slip-On system: the (r)evolutionary exhaust system.

This new exhaust system has a distinctive new shape that follows the lines of the bike perfectly and is constructed with Akrapovič’s beautifully crafted titanium tubes, a carbon-fiber outer sleeve and end cap, and a completely new carbon-fiber bracket, making the system lightweight and adding to the overall performance of the bike. The distinctive shape is initially only available for the Kawasaki Ninja H2, but will also be available for other bikes from different brands soon.

The new Kawasaki Ninja H2 is a one-liter supercharged motorcycle that’s set to change the face of sports bikes, and with the addition of the newly available Akrapovič exhaust system it will make a stunning combination that will make the motorcycle world stand up and take notice. To see the new Akrapovič exhaust and Kawasaki Ninja H2, visit the EICMA show in Milan, Italy from November 6th to 9th and get up close and personal with the future of high-performance motorcycling.

I love the appearance of the Akrapovic Slip-0n. However, what I don't like it exposes more of the Cat converter which I don't like. Hopefully aftermarket comes up with a Belly Pan to improve the appearance.

If you're getting an H2.

Without a doubt you would have to get a full system. Just putting on a slip-on is basically cosmetics. All the weight of the cats, and hardware, must be removed, therefore needing to do the MAP/ECU flashing, After looking over the H2, the
exhaust system is a monstrosity. It must be completely removed.

I thought someone had posted somewhere on the forum the approximate weight of the H2s exhaust...

There is a 22 kg difference in curb weights between H2 and H2R, I imagine a significant chunk is the exhaust system, especially when the H2R is chucking out 120 db exhaust notes, you need a SERIOUS silencer...

That's also what i noticed, maybe an under cowl will help.

Good choice, nothing better at the moment to be first, and probably not for some time.

What mods would you do after?
