Akrapovic Full Moon Concept Motorcycle

Using the Bad Salzuflen Custombike Show in Germany as a backdrop, the known exhaust manufacturer Akrapovic unveiled a new concept motorcycle – the Full Moon.

The Full Moon was designed with Slovenian Dreamachine Motorcycles. This same partnership produced the legendary Morsus in 2011. The promotional bike actually is a continuation of the Morsus story, but designed totally different to appeal to a different eye.

Speaking of the Full Moon, Akrapovic says “this concept machine was developed to avoid being categorized, and as such is a bike that belongs nowhere and everywhere, making it a unique motorcycle. The name comes from the huge aluminum and carbon thirty-inch front wheel, which is completely visible, giving the impression of a full moon and making a huge statement of what this bike is about.

“Over eight hundred hours went into creating this superbly finished machine, which features an S&S Knucklehead 1,524 cc engine and two modified custom-made Akrapovič exhausts. The frame and bodywork are made entirely of sheet metal and form an extension to the exhausts. The bodywork is thus part of the Akrapovič exhaust system—an integral part, in fact—and the bike itself is essentially an exhaust.”

Immediately noticeable – and not found on other customs – is the 30-inch composite front wheel, along with the composite front brake disc.

Akrapovic says the steering is completely automated, which allows a minimalist steering rod without any visible cables that would otherwise be required for the bike to function.

And because the Full Moon arrives with hydraulic suspension, it can be parked upright.

“This is an extremely technically advanced motorcycle, full of unique elements that were carefully chosen to make the bike totally exclusive, and the shape hides completely new solutions used on a custom bike for the first time. The Full Moon is like no other bike out there now, and Akrapovič is very proud of it,” to company says.

Besides the Bad Salzuflen, the Full Moon will be showcased at many other events and shows across the globe.
