Ordered the short Wings. Price is 519 euros incl shipping and should be here by the end og August :-)

Compared to the Akra it is a very good deal. Price is about 60 % of the Akra. It's also better looking. Hopefully it also sounds better :-)

The email I received from Gorazd had the cost at:

You will find the prices and the payment methods attached to this e-mail. The total sum would be 598,- 21,- postage= 619,- € via bank transfer or 644,- € via paypal ( I have to add 4% paypal fee ).
644 Euro is more than I want to pay as I could get a Akra for not much more.

Your price is probably including vat.

nah, only reply I got was:
"The 1190 R with the twin exhaust system sounds exactly like my 990R which was fitted with Leo Vince cans.

For more information, pricing and orders on the twin conversion for the 1190, contact Jan Burger 072 864 9185 - he was the project manager on the twin exhaust system.

I know they've made jigs and moulds (on the exhaust pipes and soft luggage side racks) and intend to market the complete system locally and internationally.

I believe the complete twin conversion will be less than the OEM Acro canister......

This is exactly what I wanted.....the 1190 now sound and look like a KTM!"

Good luck with that one as AFAIR, the Akra for the 1190 is 780. But maybe you have contacts.

My Wings, delivered (with a 25 bank transfer charge ) was 550. I've also listened to the Akra and it's pretty quiet. I guess I was expecting more, plus it still looks a bit lardy. The quality of the Wings is right up there and it also comes with a choice of baffles.

Here's the shorty beside the standard pipe.
I had a few mates over to help lift the standard pipe off

Did you get your T-shirt to?
My wings is still in the box. Will fit it next week some time.
Wings say no remap is required. Do you concur?

This is the shortie. Very happy with both build quality and sound. Throttle response seems unchanged from stock as expected.
