PERFORMANCE PARTS PARTNERS AKROPOVIC AND RAPID BIKE
March 12th, 2019.



Performance Parts has announced a new working partnership with two major brands; Akrapovic and Rapid Bike its approved aftermarket fuelling partner.


Akrapovic has announced the start of its technical cooperation with the Italian fuelling technology specialist Rapid Bike to offer customers the option of perfect fuelling and injection mapping for use in combination with Akrapovic exhaust systems.

The Akrapovic R&D department has developed dedicated maps, which are available for download directly from Rapid Bike's website at www.dimsport.it/en/rapidbike-akrapovic-maps. These maps can be uploaded on EVO or RACING modules using the Rapid Bike Master software. Performance Parts can also supply the Rapid Bike fuelling module kits
pre-installed with the Akrapovic developed mapping.

Tailor-made fuelling maps used in conjunction with an Akrapovic exhaust system optimises the engine performance and are effective across the entire range of the power delivery curve and improve the motorcycle’s drivability, especially at lower and medium pms (in the “closed loop area”), thanks to the innovative management strategy of the stock Lambda sensor signal.

This partnership is extremely valuable considering the introduction of EURO 4 legislation and the strict limitations on the performance of the latest motorcycle models, especially for track use.

The following Akrapovic exhausts are currently available with Rapid Bike fuelling maps, with more to be added to cover the entire Akrapovic range where refuelling of the bike is required or beneficial:
