Akrapovič 10 Reasons Why
"The only way to win is to be the fastest, unstoppable, and unbeatable in every way. This is the motto of the Akrapovič Company since the very beginning."
1. Innovative Design
Leaders in exhaust system design. We put design at the centre of our business. The Akrapovič patented hexagonal mufflers took the motorcycle aftermarket by storm: the new shape, replacing the standard oval, transformed the concept of exhaust systems. Our conical design reaffirms our commitment to great design. Akrapovič: whether for your motorcycle or your performance car, there are no better-looking exhaust systems anywhere.
2. Pure Power
Our exhaust systems are designed to provide you with higher levels of performance. We call it Pure Power. Reduced weight from the combination of the right materials and the best design to ensure optimum exhaust flow. The right catalytic converters and the best shapes. More horsepower. More performance. Pure Power.
3. The Unique Sound Of Akrapovič
Our exhaust systems sound like no others. Just the right notes at the right times. Deep, resonant sound. The sound of Pure Power. Make your own sound with Akrapovič.
4. Race Proven
Racing is in our blood. Akrapovič has successfully supported racing teams since its inception. So far, fifty-seven world champions have relied on Akrapovič when it really matters. It’s the choice of champions whether racing on-road or off. Factory racers and privateers. There’s no better proving ground for your exhaust system than the world’s most demanding racetracks.
5. Research, Development & Testing
Akrapovič invests heavily in R&D. We have the best people constantly innovating and driving our business forward. New materials, new technology, new processes, and new products are the outcomes of this approach. It is backed up with rigorous measurement and testing to ensure that our exhaust systems meet the most stringent legal standards where required.
6. Only The Best Materials
Akrapovič uses only the best materials. We use heat-resistant titanium alloys for all the key parts of our titanium exhausts, not just the outer sleeves like many of our competitors. We also use stainless steel and ultralight carbon fibre. Our carbon fibre is pre-impregnated and ultralight, with high tensile strength and temperature resistance.
7. High Tech
Akrapovič is a pioneer in developing and using technology to bring real benefits to the end-user. And we develop the technology in-house. Hydroforming is one such process, where header tubes are moulded by applying water pressure. This way of forming material creates the ideal shape for optimum exhaust flow, with no loss in tensile strength. We are also pioneers in the plastic deformation of titanium alloys and welding.
8. State of the Art Factory
At our manufacturing facilities, we maintain quality control by designing and manufacturing our exhaust systems in-house. This allows us to create exhaust tubes to our own specifications for maximum performance and quality. Our in-house laboratories ensure that we meet the standards for type approval and certification.
9. Passion & Experience
Few can match the passion, experience, and dedication of the Akrapovič team. We already have twenty years of devotion to developing the best exhaust systems behind us and a desire for perfection in our products' design, performance, and sound. All Akrapovič employees work with a passion for our products, racing, and customer satisfaction.
10. Attention To Detail
It’s all in the detail. Not just in the design and testing but also in the assembly, right down to the packaging. Our carbon fibre is assembled by hand with a meticulous approach to quality and finish. Then it’s signed by the person who did it. Now that’s real attention to detail.
