“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Akrapovic on the Ducati Scrambler

Akrapovic reveals a brand-new aftermarket addition for the Ducati Scrambler, an exhaust silencer accompanied by accessory exhaust lines that will change the character of the bike. Aimed at "releasing the beast", the new slip-on dual can integrate the design of the Scrambler to perfection.

Here it over here - SOUNDBITE

The Slovenian manufacturer replicated the overall looks of the stock cans, and upgraded the design with some of its characteristic lines. The result is a silencer that retains much of the stock looks and also brings a dash of aftermarket DNA to the game.

An all-titanium build, the new exhaust was engineered with input from the conical designs that equip the Grand Prix bikes. The sleeves are painted matte black, with an inconspicuous, but ever-present Akra emblem to tell the story of an upgraded machine.

The noise inserts are removable, so the rider can choose between a tamer, well-behaved tonal characteristic for daily urban riding and a much more aggressive, throaty tone. Since the Scrambler is powered by one of the Monster engines, you can expect it to never pass unnoticed. 

While the stock silencer of this Ducati is rather plain and modest as far as the sound gets, the Akrapovic cans change everything. Plus, installing them will add as much as 2.3 horsepower at 7,200 rpm and provide a 3.7 Nm (2.7 lb-ft) gain at 4,150 revs.

You'll also jump from 6 kg (13.2 lb) to only 2.4 kg (5.3 lb), meaning a 60% weight reduction. The noise level will increase from 96 at 4,125 rpm to 98 at 4,125 rpm. Ducati riders can rest assured, as the Akrapovic silencer is offered with ECE and EC compliance testing.

A Slip-On Line Open version is also available, sporting a full titanium link pipe and no pre-muffler. For prices and availability you should contact your nearest Akrapovic dealer, but installing the new exhaust is an operation that only requires minimal tech skills. A manual is supplied with the cans, and Akrapovic says that the whole thing should be completed in around 45 minutes.
