Can't believe you lose another 4 kg! That's almost more helpful than the power gains.

Too bad the cost alone might entirely discourage some people but being a bike most would keep for at least a few seasons I can imagine a good portion of buyers here getting it. Maybe its time we get a poll going on this

I love the way they have the sound setup on the website. Definitely sounds a heck of a lot better than stock but hey, what else do you expect from Akra right?

Price, an arm and a leg but i would give up either one for an akra system any day as im sure most would, its worth it. there's little negotiating between it and anything else.

Looks and weight go to Akro. Sound goes to Ixil. I guess street value will be a point for one system.

Kawasaki is also selling an Akro branded exhaust as an official accessory, which may not have as offensive sound level.

It'll sound good for sure, but the price tag is gonna be a kicker for an Akra system

Good mention since odds are it was designed along with the engine or whatever refinements were made with the engine before prodcution. If true that will go a long way for creating the ideal sound, something not as possible to create when the system is designed after the fact.
