BOS exhausts of the Netherlands has designed a light and short silencer for the brand new ZX-6R from Kawasaki.

At only 300mm long, this neat silencer is substantially shorter and slimmer than the original and at just 2 kg it is half the weight of the factory item at 4.1 kg.

Not only does it produce a beautiful sound, it delivers some extra horsepower as well - 113.7bhp @ 13810rpm compared to 111bhp @ 13774 rpm is claimed. Torque is boosted too, by 2.4 Nm at 9231 rpm.

Fully road legal, BOS designed the slip-on silencer to fit directly onto the current system without the need for any retaining straps. Based on the company's popular GTS oval design, BOS offer the ZX-6R silencer in 'shotblast' stainless steel, which has a similar appearance to titanium, or with a with a carbon fibre sleeve. Both have a polished stainless end cap.

The BOS ZX-6R silencer retails for £379 in 'shotblast' stainless steel and at £439 with a carbon fibre sleeve.
