Akrapovic release spine-tingling tribute to superbikes

An ode to the exhaust note

HOW do you improve on excellence?

In the case of a superbike it's simple: just add an aftermarket exhaust.

Something titanium and tasty, maybe. Or go classy with carbon.

Akrapovič has released a spine-tingling video reminding us just why aftermarket exhausts - the brand's own to be precise - are so important. 

Watch, listen and try not to drool at the Honda CBR1000RR, BMW S1000RR, Yamaha YZF-R1, Suzuki GSX-R1000, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, Ducati 1299 Panigale and Aprilia RSV4 being put through their paces on track.

A setting sun, moody soundtrack and smooth voiceover add to the already incredible atmosphere.
