I bought this as it's the only custom can for the GS that BMW themselves market, so I knew it would definitely work with the bike. The only difference is BMW will charge you north of £600 for one! It's a fraction of the weight of the BMW standard, in fact it's the biggest single thing you can do to reduce the weight of a GS - and I should know as I've done them all. Once you feel how heavy the existing one was compared to what you just put on, you'll wonder why you hadn't done it sooner. Looks the part - which you mightn't think for such a "sports" brand, as that was a concern of mine. Sounds great too, and even gives it a few extra horses. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Titanium sleeve AND internals - made completely from Titanium for weight saving. The other R1200GS slip on has stainless steel internals hence the lower price for that one !
Good power increase. Standard Akrapovic badge
When fitted with the Akrapovic conical collectors the power increase is 8bhp (baffle out) and 6.5bhp with baffle in.
This figure is peak power, but does not explain the surge in mid-range power gained. There is a MASSIVE increase in torque between 3,500 and 5,500 rpm.
No other modifications to the carburration are necessary when fitting this silencer.

The only difference is the price and the badge between the 'real' Akrapovic products sold by us and the ones sold in BMW dealers.
