Revolution of exhaust systems as Akrapovič presents new muffler shape concept at Intermont 2014

From October 1st to 5th, Cologne once again hosted Intermot, a world-renowned motorcycle, scooter, and e-bike fair. Akrapovič participated in the action-packed program of the main European event for motorized two-wheelers with an attention-grabbing stand that featured a lot of surprises.

Most exciting of all was the exclusive unveiling of our new muffler concept, which announced a revolution in exhaust technology development. Its groundbreaking shape features bold, aggressive curves that give this new muffler a dynamic sportiness that’s further enhanced by a trapezoid end-cap. The visionary design is instantly recognizable, just like the sound of our exhausts.

Other recent items from our state-of-the-art factory included an exhaust system for the BMW R 1200 R and a black Slip-On for the BMW R 1200 GS. Akrapovič products for Ducati (Monster 1200, Hypermotard) and Yamaha (YZF-R6, MT-09) also attracted a lot of attention, as did our systems for Honda bikes (CBR1000RR, CRF450R 2015 model year) and the release of classic Slip-On line mufflers for Harley-Davidson models with the new-generation Valve system.
Intermot visitors to our stand enjoyed a close-up view of the award-winning Ducati Panigale exhaust, which was recently added to the prestigious Red Dot Museum in Singapore. We also displayed the spectacular Akrapovič-equipped Movistar Yamaha MotoGP bike number 46, made famous by legendary rider Valentino Rossi, and other racing machines like the Ducati Desmosedici GP14, Kawasaki ZX-10R, and Aprilia RSV4 Factory also drew the crowds.
