Increased performance Advanced technology Quality workmanship Unique sound Innovative design Improved durability

Akrapovič marks an important milestone in the company’s history in 2016 when the Slovenian exhaust specialist celebrates its 25th anniversary. Since its inception in 1991, when founder Igor Akrapovič began tuning engines and making exhausts in his garage for local motorcycle racers, Akrapovič has grown to international recognition as the leading manufacturer of ultra lightweight high-performance exhaust systems in the world.

Racing is a vital part of our DNA The Ducati team wants to have the best components on their motorcycles and we’re primarily interested in the reliability and durability of the product, which must endure even the greatest pressures. The stress on MotoGP racing bike components is truly enormous. In addition to durability, enhanced engine power and the usable power curve are also important factors in an exhaust. Technology plays an extremely important role in exhaust systems and this is where Akrapovič provides excellent support.

Luigi Dall’Igna, Ducati Corse General Manager Akrapovič has more than twenty years of racing experience at the pinnacle of moto racing and over 100 world champions have trusted our exhaust systems to give them the performance and results they need. It’s this heritage that makes Akrapovič the preferred choice among racing teams and road-riders alike. From MotoGP TM machines to national championship bikes, Akrapovič exhaust systems are designed to reduce weight, increase performance, and extract additional power. Akrapovič exhaust systems harness and enhance the linear power from the vrcycle’s engine, making the bike more ridable and give the rider a true feeling of the engine and its performance through the science of throttle control. This dedication to produce the best is a philosophy that’s channelled through to road-bikes -making them lighter, faster, and better.

DUCATI CORSE PARTNERSHIP Akrapovič is proud partner and official sponsor of Ducati Corse in MotoGP and Superbike World Championship. The successful partnership with Ducati started in 2014 in MotoGP and was extended to the Superbike World Championship the following year, in 2015.
