Akrapovic Morsus Frist Ride

Akrapovic Morsus Frist Ride has always been authority on exhaust systems, whether its with cars or motorcycles. Having crafted a reputation of being one of the best in the business, the Slovenian aftermarket company always gets the nod when brands are looking for top-of-the-line systems.

Built in collaboration with Dreamachine Motorcycles, the Akrapovič Morsus features an S&S 113 CI (that’s 1,852cc for the mertic-inclined) motor that pumps out 114hp through its modified Akrapovič exhaust pipe. The Morsus design appeases our modern-leaning design sensibilities, but true to its ethos, it’s the Akrapovič exhaust that really makes us drool over this bike. There’s something about an underslung side-venting pipe that makes us happy, and the Akrapovič Morsus is no exception to the rule. Photos and more after the jump.

The Morsus was victorious among 120 custom bikes and also won the Radical category. At Lake Faak Akrapovič successfully presented its aftermarket range of exhaust systems for the Harley Davidson.

Even more interesting than the Morsus, really, is the story of Akrapovic. Though Igor Akrapovic (pronounced a-CROP-o-vitch) only started bending pipes 20 years ago (under the name Scorpion until ’97), his exhausts have found their way onto a large percentage of influential motorcycles, including but not limited to Ben Spies’ R1, Jorge Lorenzo’s M1, Bubba Stewart’s YZ450F, Max Biaggi’s Aprilia the list goes on. The first championship was with Colin Edwards’ Honda SP-01 in 2000.
