In short, the brand's reputation is deeply rooted as a major player in two- and four-wheel performance for a wide audience and many teams and riders.
A little bit of history :
Between 1970 and 1991, Igor Akrapovič prepared his own motorbikes for the competitions he took part in. After a few clear victories, Mr Akrapovič decided to enter the motorbike exhaust market.
In 1991, the Akrapovič company was launched. With a performance and competition enthusiast at the helm, it took only two short years for the brand to break through internationally. In 2000, after several legendary race victories, Akrapovič won its first ever WorldSBK title.
Just two years later, the brand entered the MotoGP World Championship. Always in search of knowledge, the new millennium marks the beginning of the conquest of Igor Akrapovič and his empire. After his arrival in MotoGP, the brand moved on to Formula 1, Endurance and Grand Touring. With its experience and successful expertise, the brand accesses in all motorsports with ever increasing performance.
In 2007, the manufacturer took a new turn in its development with the creation of state-of-the-art laboratories and the integration of a titanium foundry into its premises. Technology at the service of very high quality materials allows the brand to create shapes, alloys and premium finishes adapted to the performance of the vehicles for which they are designed.
Proud representative of a unique know-how, the company successfully proves the efficiency, durability and unerring popularity around its products. Today, Akrapovič is positioned as the undisputed champion of motorsport performance with over 140 world championship titles to its credit.
Still alive, Akrapovič is already a legend in motorsports and in the equipment of motorcyclists like you and us.
Premium technology, a unique symphony.
In addition to its motorsport expertise, the brand's success is a direct result of the materials used and the method of processing, alloys and finishing.
The titanium and stainless steel tubes of the Akrapovič exhaust lines are machined using a hydroforming process. This process allows the tubes to be machined precisely without overheating the materials. For this, almost 2000 tons and 5000 bars of water pressure are applied to form the tubes, which are then bent into the shape of the Akrapovič product in the next production step.
Cold folding process
Akrapovič's know-how allows the manufacturer to form by cold folding process exhaust lines on tubes ranging from 10 to 100mm with curves ranging from 30 to over 150mm. The brand's objective is to push back the limits of the materials used in order to seek ever greater performance and resistance. The industrialisation of the company's production processes allows for a top level of precision with a tolerance limit of 0.3mm.
Akrapovič is synonymous with high quality titanium, carbon and stainless steel. In order to guarantee the best possible quality of titanium, the Slovenian firm has set up a titanium foundry at the heart of its manufacturing process.
Why did they choose titanium as a work basis? Titanium is a very light and strong alloy. With tremendous corrosion resistance, this alloy has a high heat resistance and a very high melting temperature. Akrapovič only works with titanium grades 2, 5 and 9, alloys offering heat resistance up to 998°C.
With the aim of making performance accessible to as many people as possible, Akrapovič has also declined its very high performance titanium exhaust lines into stainless steel exhaust lines. Despite this change of material, the shape of the line remains optimised for the machine for which it is intended. Slightly less resistant to very high temperatures and slightly heavier, it remains very resistant to corrosion. Intended to be less demanding than the titanium lines, the stainless steel lines act as a mid-range in Akrapovič's high-performance premium universe.
To complement these works of art, the manufacturer has developed its expertise in weaving and moulding carbon fibre. This has enabled Akrapovič to create lightweight silencers in a variety of shapes with performance in mind. Known for its finish and durability, the company's carbon quickly became a success. Such was its success that the manufacturer decided to diversify to create not only mufflers but also heat shields and other fairing parts. For aesthetic, protective and performance purposes, a motorbike equipped with a full exhaust system and Akrapovič carbon fairings never leaves you indifferent.
The passion for motorbikes is also about the sound and the sensations it produces. At AVDB Moto, we are convinced of this.
