With Kisses From Slovenia

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.

Technical Data Of the Akrapovič Morsus Custom Motorcycle:

Frame: by Dreamachine Motorcycles, Engine: S&S 113 CI (1852 ccm), 114 HP. Transmission: Ecoline 6 gears, hydraulic clutch. Primary: Zodiac 3¨ open belt, with support plate.

Handlebar controls: PT Radial. Brakes: Front 4 piston radial caliper, wave disc rotors, rear brake sprocket by Custom Tech. Air filter: Akrapovič carbon end cap, modified by Dreamachine Motorcycles.

    Nice symmetry and lines. Glad they didn’t clutter it up.

    Beautiful motorcycle and one that looks like it wants to be ridden hard.

    Pure sexy…just look at the lines.

    No downtube, low slung exhaust, very minimalistic, I love it. Wonder what the ride is like?

    What I love about Europe, the woman don’t eat le big mac.

  10. 10 Jerry Jun 13th, 2011 at 11:28 am

    Any custom bike looks better with an european woman. Let’s import them in the US.

  11. 11 Woody Jun 13th, 2011 at 11:53 am

    Won’t work, Jerry. We turn them into American women in no time 😉 Bike looks great! Very smooth, love the flowing lines.

    I would be interested to learn how they have neutralized the neck flex commonly associated with a no front down tube style frame.

    Good looking bike …. ans “She” isn’t bad herself!

    Over & Out,

    I wish more of my customers would ask me for wheels like that!

    I always comment on the Women, and I always get Shit about it, and now look what is on everybody’s mind as well. This Chick is Built but doesn’t have such a great Helmet (face) . When you have Italy that close you can have that kind of Sleek Deisgn. When you have Austria on the other side , now you have the Engineering to Engineer the Bike. When you have Hungary on the other side you have the ability to get the Parts, and materials for less. Whenthe Croatians are involved you have the Funds to put the Project together with the Finances. That is why when the Boarders became “None” You can put Projects like this together !!!!!!!!! I still don”t think they looked to hard to find the Bitch…….

    What next “Goth” motorcycles….???
    Certainly cool minimalist look.
    But yes, as Jeff suggests, even with a 1/2 inch thick plate holding the neck to the backbone, probably some pogo effect and “head shaking” there.

    whoooaaaa even the guys making exhaust for motocross and sportsbikes think they can target the HD crowd. Next stop, a complete system from Yoshimura and then some crazy mufflers from FMF… Sales must be down everywhere.

  17. 17 Keith Stone & Kiki Jun 14th, 2011 at 12:25 am

    Chick is hot…. Dig dem’ pants and boots……

    26″ wheels? No thanks, that’s show, and no go….. Maybe its just an add piece…….

    Hope Akrapovic can offer a Harley exhaust for less than $2-3 + K… There stuff is NICE and really expensive…. I think the ‘average’ American Harley rider isn’t going to give Akrapovic one heap of crap for what Akrapovic does in Europe, and then pay the price… Prolly go get some V&H for more than half the cost… JMOP… I dont think most Harley riders are into carbon fiber tipped mufflers and Titanium tubes that Akrapovic are known for…. Wish them the best….. Akrapovic puts out an awesome product !………

    Smoking hot babe and nice bike……..is she the next bond girl?

    Jeff good question, as it looks like a pretzel waiting to snap apart 🙁

  19. 19 baddad Jun 14th, 2011 at 2:14 am

    Bike is great. Greetings from Slovenia. 🙂

  20. 20 Joe Skonecki Jun 14th, 2011 at 7:01 am

    To skinny!

  21. 21 Wiz Jun 14th, 2011 at 7:08 am

    Good-Lookin’ Babe wrapped in RUBBER!! It’s not really my fetish, but I can ADAPT!! Yuk-Yuk!! Wiz

  22. 22 Neil Jun 14th, 2011 at 7:57 am

    This bike should be in Sturgis in August if you want to check it out up close.

  23. 23 Boomer Jun 14th, 2011 at 8:43 am

    Nice sleek and original lines. Almost looks like it would be at home at the Bonneville Salt Flats with those wheels and the rearward foot position. Nice job of making the shift and rear brake linkage disappear. Almost can’t see the shifter or brake arm. I’m wondering if the engine has become the third member/downtube. Looks like just one connection point at the top but these guys have done a great job at hiding stuff so…

    The woman is too skinny. Needs to go to Italy and fill out some. 😀

    Great bike, perfect execution, professional work.

  25. 25 ultrat ';'; Jun 14th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    WAY COOL ‘;’;’;

  26. 26 Odlamn Jun 14th, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Wheels like that??? Don’t get caught in a cross-wind or pass a bigrig on hwy. Would look at home in Matrix. Very nice piece of modern art. Museum piece some day? Great deal of work and nice sculpture. Practical motorcycle? Let’s see a video, or hear from the riders.

  27. 27 Joe Skonecki Jun 14th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Voluptuous: Always is a better ride!

    The style looks great, but malnourished, bony. Looks like a skeleton with make-up. Needs more muscle!

  28. 28 martin Twofeather Jun 14th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Well done beauty for me I’d change the wheels to make it mine…

  29. 29 Rider2 Jun 14th, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    Odlamn… this thing is not meant to be on the road. This bike is just a marketing tool for the company. It was certainly not designed to run from California to Sturgis or have any kind of mechanical advancement other than looking cool in a showroom of a corporate office. Nice bike with an interesting design.
