Found on the machines of many of today's leading race teams and riders across the globe, Akrapovic has established itself as one of the world's leading manufacturers of motorcycle exhaust systems. Founded in Slovenia in 1991 by Igor Akrapovic, the company has gone from strength to strength in this relatively short time, now being regarded as an industry leader across the multiple disciplines they cover.
Developed to fill a perceived lack of affordable but quality aftermarket exhausts in his homeland, the first units manufactured were tested upon Igor's personal race machines. Notoriety developed, to the point where Kawasaki tested and later utilized their units for their World Superbike machines. Nowadays they are renowned across numerous categories in both the 2 and 4 wheel worlds, and their distinct pincer logo can be seen on the factory race bikes of Red Bull KTM in Europe and America, the Monster Energy Yamaha MXGP team, as well as various leading enduro and off road teams.
Every component of an Akrapovic exhaust is carefully designed and constructed by a highly skilled multidisciplinary team of industrial designers, engineers, and architects. Challenges are dealt with every day, in a process combining technical solutions and state-of-the-art design. Akrapovic’s signature hexagonal muffler took the world by storm when it was introduced to the motorcycle market in 2005. Their desire for constant evolution lead to the development of new conical mufflers, with which came a sharper racing sound and increased performance. In recent years, new designs of their exhaust systems and composite parts have been developed with new innovative shapes and effects.
Akrapovic’s range of off road systems are divided into 3 categories: The Slip-On Line, Racing Line and the Akrapovic titanium Evolution Line.
Their slip-on exhaust systems are designed to deliver an outstanding combination of high quality, durability, performance, visual enhancements and affordability, whether it's finished in carbon fibre for your Ninja 300, or titanium for your BMW F650GS. Easy to install, Akrapovic’s exhausts for motocross models meet new FIM noise limits and feature a more durable welded bracket and titanium end cap. These exhaust systems also feature a new coating for the silencer outer sleeve, giving better scratch resistance and easier cleaning. Newer models feature a spark arrestor with no loss in power.
The Racing Line exhaust system is made from stainless steel tubes and a titanium muffler outer sleeve providing an exotic finish. Their unique design yields the maximum output for each specific motorbike model while significantly reducing overall weight for maximizing performance for Australian conditions. The Racing Line systems are identical to top-range the Evolution Line full exhaust system apart from the material from which they have been manufactured. Racing Line models also feature the scratch resistant coating for the outer slip-on muffler sleeve, which also helps with easier cleaning after your ride.
The Evolution Line is a flagship of the Akrapovic exhaust systems, used by some of top factory teams in racing. Manufactured entirely from titanium, each model has been individually developed with an approach focused on extracting ideal engine performance, whilst reducing overall weight; in turn assisting to optimize the handling of the whole motorcycle.
