Press Release: Akrapovič Goes on Its Adventures with the Africa Twin
06. April 2016
Akrapovič has released an exhaust specially designed for the all-new Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin that will add even greater freedom and enjoyment wherever riders’ adventures take them.
The Akrapovič Slip-On Line (Titanium) was created to embrace the rigours and challenges that the Africa Twin is designed to tackle. Constructed from lightweight, durable titanium alloy, the Slip-On Line exhaust is the perfect accompaniment to a machine that aims to conquer mountains, deserts, rock, sand, and everything in between – including the urban jungle. The uniquely designed double-flow muffler is a combination of a hexagonal shape and a more classic rear endcap, giving the appearance of an exhaust that means business wherever it may roam.
With a design inspired by Akrapovič-equipped cross-country rally-winning motorcycles – including rallies in Africa, the continent that gave birth to Honda’s iconic machine – the Slip-On Line is every bit an exhaust that has been developed under the harshest and most gruelling of conditions. With its durable titanium muffler sleeve and robust carbon-fibre clamp, this is an exhaust designed with adventure in mind. This EC/ECE type-approved exhaust also provides a performance increase at lower and higher revs – where an adventure bike needs it most – fully designed to provide a smoother and improved ride.
Akrapovič’s sound engineers have created a deeper more enriching sound for the Slip-On Line, which uses the best characteristics of the Honda’s 270° twin-cylinder engine. Enhancing the engine’s pulsating beat, the Slip-On Line will deliver a rewarding and enjoyable feeling no matter what landscape the rider is tackling. This beautiful and rewarding exhaust is a simple plug-and-play easy installation – without any need for remapping – and comes with full instructions.
The Akrapovič Slip-On Line (Titanium) is an exhaust designed to take on whatever adventure comes its way, and it is the perfect accompaniment to get the very best from the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin.
