The Racing Line is a full exhaust system from Akrapovič designed to increase power output and reduce the motorcycle's weight, and this version for the latest FZ-09, FJ-09, and XSR900 appears to be no exception. The muffler has a new shape and is made from high-grade titanium with the headers beautifully constructed from stainless steel, and the entire system is completed with a hand-crafted carbon-fiber end cap.

Akrapovič claims that power is raised from stock by 6.7 hp at 10,050 rpm, with an extra 4.4 lb-ft of torque at 5,300 rpm. The use of lightweight materials has resulted in a significant reduction of 4.4 pounds on the stock Yamaha exhaust, which is 23.8% lighter than the stock system and will improve handling due to the lower weight.

Akrapovič sound engineers have tuned the system to give it a deeper and sportier sound, ensuring that the aural feedback from the bike is as good as its visuals.

The new system is EC/ECE type-approved and totally compliant with Euro 4 regulations for both emissions and noise. The complete exhaust system is EC/ECE type-approved, despite the small and compact design of the muffler, with type-approval valid when the mandatory catalytic converter is installed. With no remapping required and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, the Racing Line is simple to install. FZ-09, FJ-09 and XSR900 owners can expect to see an MSRP of $1,194 for the Racing Line (Titanium) system. For more information visit akrapovic.com.
