Thread: Twin Akra for the RC8

Junior Moto Join Oct 2009 Location Switzerland and up into the blue skies. 134


The problem KTM meanwhile with the exhaust of the RC8 is — they have “shot in their own knee” with the set up with the under the engine Let us drop off the whole marketing with the centralized masses MOTO GP bikes are all working without…) – Then we end up with:

The of the exhaust damper “under the goes along with the 2 major drawbacks:

1.) The under the exhaust technology makes it a that the exhaust — volume is strictly limited…

2.) The the engine exhaust technology it a fact that exhaust gas are excessively high / hot…

And these are the 2 crucial “…” points. The available space and the exhaust gas temperatures will a stainless steel reflexion type exhaust damper as the only single one technologic solution! (Hey – We allready had one — At the very beginning of the

Unfortunately, the solution with a wool stuffed adsorption – the solution which will in the lowest back pressure and with the most horses on the – is prone to excessive hot exhaust and requires a cat — as well as volume and space — in to come down with the and pollutions — on street levels…

And this is exactly the that KTM faces right All the titanium Akras – that are A) not legal and B) suffer from braking – Are talking a clear here…

And because the idiots in Bologna – A) — on one hand side won numerous world championships in the 2 decades – B) but — on the other — have failed to a proper exhaust system for bikes… They’re still with a situation in which C) have to rely on the old fashioned the seat exhaust” — is D) located far away from the of masses of their bikes…

But because KTM has now realized that … has already hit the fan” and they have to do something – in to get out of trouble – They have now

Principally there are 2 different to cure the problem and to overcome the and to get out of trouble and misery:

A) They will copy the from Ducati – and create a new back section — with 2 “under the seat” But — this is in reality impracticable for several good 1.) One can not just simply copy the – No way. 2.) This would a complete re – design of the “aft” section of the bike – And this is not because — the “aft” of the RC8 is the sexiest “arse” in the whole bike scene… 3.) Such a would only be a solution for a new – no way to put it on — on existing bikes… it would not be a real solution for all the “hot” customers…

B) They ask sub supplier (Akrapovic) to create a in classic fashion… We can see here how such a solution eventually look like… That a solution looks a little bit the ones implemented on a VTR 1000 SP1 / on a Mille or even on a 851 Duc – is not a miracle – but demanded by the technical cornerstones…

But – What’s the “bang for the buck” such a solution… It is a:

1.) A high durable and at the same time full solution – Both and without cat…

2.) A solution in “Marjan” and his boys — than the KTM boys — have the lead…

3.) A solution the holy “arse” of the KT8 will untouched…

4.) A solution which fit “nicely” — on existing

For “yours thoroughly” the situation like that — The I look on these new Akra pipes — The more I and love them.

Look – This is just “JLO” — wearing an new JLO” and the RC8 both depend on voices and their performance but also heavily — on the of their … “arses”… And such beauties can easily and survive — with a new

I on my side – I’m very much interested to see the dyno charts and of the 1150 RC8 and the 1190 RC8R equipped with the new “Akra” pipes — fine with the respective maps… I bet the new “Akra” — pipes – equipped with cat AND dB Killers – away” — EVERY existing exhaust system by — at least — 5 This – and nothing else is the world of Marjan and the boys at the factory… They will not — go for less.

Hey – and if this will be the fact – itb is clear to me that beauty of the RC8 — quite like the of “JLO” will tolerate a new – tollerate these ne Akra

Akra Rulez —

(just my 2 little cents).
