First, let me state that the pictures you are looking at are not issued from a CAD program. It’s the real thing shot with creative photography lighting. The Morsus is a one-off custom built by the crew of Dream Machine Motorcycles based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, a small central europe country of 2.05 million bordering Italy on the west, Croatia on the south and east, Hungary on the northeast, and Austria on the north. Very few custom motorcycle shops, but very good ones.
Morsus was commissioned by Akrapovič, a leading manufacturer of premium, light weight performance exhausts systems for motorcycles and performance cars known for its carbon and titanium artistry gracing many bikes in the AMA, World Superbike, and MotoGP paddocks. The bike is a mix of titanium, stainless steel and carbon fiber, main materials used by Akrapovič in the production of their racing exhausts. Bike design includes some visual cues of the scorpion, long associated with the Akrapovič brand image. This creature on wheels wants us to talk about Akrapovič because, you guessed it, management is now targeting the Harley-Davidson market…Dream Machine Motorcycles.
