Akrapovic has just released a new titanium slip-on for the GSX-S1000 and S1000F.

Akra claims that the new slip-on adds 2 hp, with the most noticeable difference coming at the 5,000 RPM mark. Notably, the new slip-on meets EC/ECE approval without the need for noise-reducing baffles.

To go along with its 2 HP increase the slip-on also saves you nearly 2 lbs in weight and ups torque by 1.5 lb-ft. If you want one it will set you back $796.46.

Akrapovic Press Release:

Akrapovič has unveiled a new exhaust that is designed to make a motorcycle born on the racetrack and raised on the street show its full potential.
The latest addition to the ever-growing Akrapovič range is a Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhaust for the Suzuki GSX-S1000F, a bike that draws directly on the world championship–winning GSX-R1000 and carries the spirit of this famous machine in its DNA. From the conical muffler to its sharp racing sound, the Slip-On Line is designed to impress, and this latest product from Akrapovič certainly achieves this.

Manufactured from race-bred materials, the outer sleeve is produced using high-grade titanium, with the front and rear muffler assembly constructed from stainless steel. With a beautifully crafted carbon-fibre heat-shield and finished with a carbon-fiber end-cap, the Slip-on Line perfectly complements the appearance of the GSX-S1000F and adds to the aggressive roadster design of the bike.

The Slip-On Line is not all about looks, though, because it also adds to the performance of the 999 cc inline four-cylinder power plant that is fitted to the GSX-S1000F. Overall power is increased, especially when the engine hits 5,000 rpm, and torque levels are enhanced to ensure a smoother and more enjoyable ride as the performance increases. With a weight saving over the stock exhaust, the new Slip-On Line delivers in an all areas and allows the bike to demonstrate its true sporting potential. With the increase in performance also comes a sharp racing sound that leaves no one in any doubt that this bike has a racing pedigree.

The Akrapovič Slip-On Line for the Suzuki GSX-S1000F has been designed to deliver. The technicians have not overlooked the need for EC/ECE type approval and they have created an exhaust that has been optimized for the best possible performance and sound, without having the need for a noise-reduction insert. With easy-to-follow instructions, and no additional modifications needed to the bike, the Slip-On Line is a simple plug-and-play operation.

The Suzuki GSX-S1000F is a bike designed to turn heads with its aggressive styling, and with the addition of an Akrapovič Slip-On Line exhaust these values are amplified, making this a motorcycle that will be a delight to see, hear, and ride, and creating a bike that could own the street.
MSRP: $796.46

ROTFLMAO! $800 for 2 hp, 1.5 lb-ft of torque, and noise that is compliant with Euro standards (no volume increase) is a joke. It would be different if there were a removeable baffle. It's purely an aesthetics or bragging rights thing at this point. I would just go full exhaust or nothing. This is right up there with spending $600-$800 for Suzuki painted calipers. Heck, I like the stock muffler enough that I would put that on an Arrow or Akropovic header before this muffler on a stock header. Although, I will admit that the stock muffler heat shield is easy to dent with ones heel.

I like Akrapovič and the fact that its comming from my country its an additional plus but its more then overpriced for a slip on. Other thing that i dont like about is that its attached to the pillion footpeg, that u see the pipe between the can and the carbon cover, and for red/black GSX-S it would be nice if it would be in black and carbon.

If i look at picture1 below it looks great (just not chrom. Black and,or carbon would be perfect)!!! Maybe i dont have a good taste but it looks nicer to me!? And 800 bucks for 2 PS, rear foot pillion,wierd look... is a joke!!!!
Long gone are the times when we were satisfied with this kind of looking exhausts(picture2)

PS: In this case till today remus hypercone for half price and black colour is still a better choice!!!!

All fair points, a sticker at those prices is taking the proverbial.

There are other lesser known companies producing cans as well.

I quite like this GPR and it connects to the front foot peg for the purists.

At the minute I am liking the Yoshimura Alpha and the Remus.

Get a GPR from Italy. Ebay. Used them a few years on RSV, MV800 Brutale and now the Suzuki. Great quality for the price. Various versions and they don't mount to the rear pegs so you can remove them.

Must just add, I test rode a BMW S1000R and KTM Superduke R both fitted with Akrapovic's, in both cases the sound was just intoxicating. Would just rev it up at the traffic lights while waiting for green, and always turned heads. :)

I had a full akra system on my mt09 and it was awesome. Not sure the cost for a slip on is great.
I have a friend who works at bilstein and knows the akra uk sales manager.
May see how much of a discount i can get but even then its probably too expensive

my problem is i like the stock exhaust :) ok it could do with being a little louder and will prob not look great in a few years. However looks wise i really like it. so until i have a reason to spend money on a new exhaust i will stick with stock.

Yes, Akra is expensive, but after trying out many different exhaust on previous bike I must say the quality and craftsmanship on some other brands is waaay below the Akra systems.
So, I have ordered the Akra slipon now. The carbon replacement of the "floppy" OEM cat-shield is worth the upgrade alone. :)
And I think any header for a GSXR K5/K6 would fit if I would try it out (very likely).
