You won't notice it on the track. Barber's fast left right transitions were a non-event.

Be nice to see exactly how much weight the Akra exhaust actually saves.
Have the bike weighed with this exhaust, I think they list it as 8kg less??

It's very simple to drop the sprung weight of any bike. It's a five points plan:

No Fats
No Carbs
No Sweets
No Alchool
No Seconds

Very true. However, a 10 kg savings would be a reach for most but could perhaps be achieved with Titanium headers and a carbon silencer.

For example, I replaced the stock silencer on a Monster 1200R with a Carbon slip-on.
The stock weighs exactly 16.8 lbs (7.6 kg) and the SC-Project Carbon weighs less than 4.4 lbs (2 kg) for a net weight savings of 12.4 lbs (5.6 kg).

Under braking I will notice 70+ lbs.

I Ride: 1299s, Multi Pikes Peak, 996 Foggy Edition
1299s - 420 wet weight
v4s - 465 wet weight
45 pounds difference.

Will it matter?
That depends on your level of riding. Are you a track junkie that removes the last ounce of unneccessary weight from your bike? Do you work out in the off season to get as lean as possible for the track?

Or...are you a track DAY guy that tapes up his lights and or spend 99% of his bike time on the street?
If the street is your answer, you'll only need to worry about the extra weight when you're at the Starbucks having a d1@k measuring contest...no offense, I like Starbucks coffee.

My 1299s track bike - 390 wet weight
Thanks from MotoX183 and cavlino

Has anybody put the V4 on a calibrated scale?

I can see the 209Kg being off 0-10% if it’s an older uncalibrated scale.

Maybe the bike is a little porky or maybe the scale isn’t terribly accurate

10% isn't going to make up for the difference. I'd think the truth will come out in the mag "shootout" tests, but I hope the factory didn't get so creative with its published specs. 465# wet, really?

A 10% error would bring it down to 418lbs fully fueled, that seems pretty reasonable to me.

10% error in the difference (ie. 35#), or 10% of the total weight? I doubt a scale would be off so much. That's way off. I really want to believe the factory specs, but 35# difference is hard to overlook.
