Hello,

I've been looking online for the best deal I can find on the new exhaust system developed by Akrapovic.




The "best" price I could find until now is 1250€ which is still too high for me :(

So ... does anyone know a cheaper place to buy it?

If I had an extra 1250 I would go for the XSR 900...
That's where the patience i've talked about before comes in, it's hard, especially when you have buddies already out and riding around and your not.

But if your in for the long term, a couple years or more, it might be worth holding out.

I know I would but right now i'm quite content with the 700.

Of course I am very satisfied with the 700, but I think that the extra 1000+ would be better invested in better suspension, brakes, anti-spin, and all the goodies that the 900 has, instead of just installing an exhaust.

For a thousand bucks I'd get the Ohlins shock and fork kit - that'll do much more for the ride and handling! I personally can't believe people spend 20% of the value of a bike this on Akra pipes, seems like lunacy to me! Each to their own I guess

The thing. The 900 doesn't really have that stuff better than the 700. It's kind of the same just maybe 10% better
