Those not in motorcycle racing have never heard the name Akrapovic. A couple of months ago, I introduced you to this European company because its experience and high quality reputation with numerous teams in the Pro Superbike championship (Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, Honda), is now associated with new exhaust systems specifically conceived for most Harley-Davidson Sportster, Softail, Dyna and Touring models. After conquering many markets around the world, Akrapovic (means Scorpion, surname of company’s founder and former racer Igor Akrapovic)) has began a US operation this summer in Irvine, California and intends to use its 21-year old well known reputation for perfectionism to conquer a big share of the US V-Twin custom exhaust market.
Akrapovic promises original designs, high end stainless steel and carbon fiber materials, better bends and welds and of course enhanced performance of more power, torque and throttle response throughout the entire rpm range … and a unique European soundtrack. As an example, featured here is the Akropovic System with muffler insert for the Harley-Davidson Road King Classic. All Akrapovič Open Systems include header, silencer and heatshield with optional noise reduction insert also available. To check on improved performance Dynojet mappings are available for all products. After you make the jump, see the one of this exhaust on the Road King Classic .
