Suzuki Malaysia officially launched the 2023 Suzuki V-Strom 800DE middleweight adventure bike for the Malaysian market held at Soul’ed Out, Kuala Lumpur on Sunday. 

The V-Strom 800DE joins the likes of BMW F 850 GS and KTM 890 Adventure in Malaysia with the introductory price of RM60,800 for the first 50 bookings. 

As usual, one of the first thing that we tend to change on a new bike is getting a new exhaust system. If you’re planning to get your hands on the new parallel-twin powered V-Strom 800DE, you are in luck as Akrapovic has just released a new slip-on for the adventure motorcycle. 

Ideally, Akrapovic new slip-on not only creates better exhaust note but also improves extra performance from the engine. According to Akrapovic, the new slip-on exhaust completely homologated to ECE and meets the latest Euro 5 standards. 

Also, the slip-on exhaust increased the power delivery up to one horsepower and one newton-meter of torque.

The slip-on exhaust is made entirely from titanium and carbon fiber, like majority of the brand’s exhaust system. The system is also easy to install thanks to its slip-on nature. 

As for pricing, the new slip-on system is said to be around the USD1,000 (RM4.6k) mark. Perhaps it’s best for you to start saving now! 

BMW R 18 is now getting an aftermarket rear silencers from Akrapovic.

  • Akrapovic introduced new rear silenceers for the BMW R 18.
  • Features lighter component and is tuned to the R 18 1,802cc engine. 

The Akrapovic rear silencers is 97mm shorter than the standard rear silencers and is made from durable stainless steel, coated in matt black finish.

Together with a silver end cap adjustable in 90-degree steps, the rear of the R 18 now appears sportier than ever.

Interestingly, Akrapovic also designed the end cap with a stylised BMW brand symbol – the propeller – making it extra appealing for the R 18.

The exhaust also features screwed-in heat protection plate to help the rider’s footwear from the exhaust heat.

It’s also important to know that the Akrapovic rear silencers is 1 kilogram lighter than the stock exhaust and have been optimally tuned to the R 18 “Big Boxer” engine to create a powerful sound. 

According to BMW Motorrad, the new rear silencers also compliments well to the BMW Motorrad Bobber Kit. 

The Tuareg 660 is Aprilia’s answer to tackle the middleweight adventure segment which previously dominated by the likes of Yamaha’s Tenere 700 and KTM’s 890 Adventure.

  • Akrapovic features a new exhaust system designed specifically for the Tuareg 660.

  • adds 1.2hp and 2Nm. 

Despite being a fresh model, the Tuareg 660 garnered a lot of attention ever since the motorcycle was teased at the 2019 EICMA.

Modeled after Aprilia’s newest 660 platform, the Tuareg also features top of the range electronic package and suspension.

While the 660cc parallel-twin mill makes a good throbbing sound, it still missing that robust adventure voice note like a proper ADV.

This is where Akrapovic comes in as the Italian expert has a new exhaust system developed specifically for the Tuareg 660.

Made out of lightweight titanium with stainless steel link pipe, the exhaust system is designed as a slip-on for the Tuareg.

Apart from delivering a proper ADV sound, the exhaust shed 1.9 kilograms from the stock pipes. Given how tall the Tuareg is, the weight loss is definitely a plus for any ADV riders.

Akrapovic also claimed that the new exhaust adds 1.2hp @ 4,800rpm and 2Nm @ 4,800.

Like the rest of the material, the link pipe and the optional header are also built out of stainless steel material.

However, it is important to take note that the installation for the new exhaust will invalidates the bike’s Euro5 compliance, making it not street legal.
