Akrapovič has launched an aftermarket premium range of exhaust systems to target the most popular Harley-Davidson models and give owners even more exclusivity from their hogs.

The Akrapovič Open-Line range is a unique design that offers outstanding performance and the unmistakable deep resonant sound of Akrapovič.

In a genre where bigger and louder is definitely better, the new Harley exhausts from Akrapovič will transform the look and sound of the motorcycle and make an already unmistakable machine stand out even more from the crowd.

The finest craftsmanship from Akrapovič’s manufacturing technicians goes into every single exhaust, with hours of intricate design and development. The latest techniques and materials—as well as knowledge developed on the racetrack—all go into making these some of the best-looking accessories you can add to a Harley-Davidson, and ones that will also improve the whole sensory experience. During the production process, the exhaust was carefully tuned for that authentic custom sound experience enjoyed not only by the rider, but everyone else.

Manufactured to the highest standards from stainless steel, these pipes are available in chrome (S-HDTOR1-C) and black-coated (S-HDTOR1-B) versions. All of the Akrapovič Open-Line exhaust systems include headers, mufflers, and heat-shields, and an optional noise-reduction insert is available for those times when a Harley rider wants to be a bit more conservative—if there ever is such a time!

The Open-Line range isn’t just about looks and sound, though. Akrapovič engineers have shaved an incredible 26 lbs of weight from the OEM system and then added an extra 6 lb-ft of torque in the mid-range—just where it’s needed.

The Harley-Davidson Open-Line range is available for many models, including the Fat Boy, Electra Glide, Switchback, and Road King, among others. This great-looking exhaust is very easy to install, and adding it to one of America’s finest machines is an extremely simple task that can comfortably be carried out by the owner. A full explanation and easy-to-use mounting manual is included with the system. For perfect performance, throttle response, and durability, a specially developed mapping from Akrapovič’s partner Dynojet must be used.

To see more from Akrapovič, visit its booth at Daytona Bike Week, from March 7th to 16th, 2014. This Slovenia-based company will be displaying its full custom-line (Open and Slip-On) exhaust systems and offering complete sales, marketing, and technical support. Whether it’s for a Harley or another motorcycle, come along and see the fantastic range of high-quality, precision-engineered exhausts that Europe’s finest manufacturer has to offer.

Akrapovič will be displaying its amazing Morsus custom bike, which signaled Akrapovič’s move into top-quality aftermarket custom motorcycle exhausts. This distinctive machine was a joint venture between Akrapovič and Slovenia-based Dreamachine Motorcycles—itself a renowned European custom workshop—and the Morsus simply stunned the European custom world when it was launched.

Showcasing a styling theme that echoed Akrapovič‘s emblem (morsus is Latin for “sting” or “bite”), this outrageous and head-turning machine is a fusion of materials including carbon fiber and titanium. Mimicking an animal in many subtle ways is part of the bike’s appeal, from its clip-on style handlebars resembling claws, through to the bike’s mid-section, which curves in the same way the creature’s body arches, and the sweeping tail section that imitates the muscular and assertive sting. Built with the same passion and experience that goes into every Akrapovič exhaust, the Morsus is special, different, and very unique!
