MV Agusta and Akrapovič announce a partnership in which the Slovenian exhaust system manufacturer will create exclusive designs for the flamboyant and passionate Italian motorcycles.
Motorcycle sound – motorcycle art
Into the concept “motorcycle art” many people put in a visual component of motorcycles – and yes, Italian manufacturers have succeeded in this aspect. But it’s not just external beauty that matters – for many ardent fans, the sound of a motorcycle is just as important. The sound of its engine, intake, and of course the exhaust.
Sound is an important part of MV Agusta motorcycles. This is a key element of their style, and we pay a lot of attention to it. Our three- and four-cylinder models have bright, unique characters, and we have always achieved the appropriate sound from them, – said Timur Sardarov, Chief Executive Officer of MV Agusta, – but this partnership goes beyond design and sound. The key here is advanced technology, unrivaled power and uncompromising quality.
Titanium alloy, carbon composite and various combinations of metallurgical magic will no doubt be included in the MV Agusta range thanks to Akrapovič. Since 2009, Akrapovič has owned its own titanium production facility, providing the highest level of internal control over the quality of the materials from which the magnificent exhaust systems are forged and smelted, which adorn so many high-end motorcycles, cars, snowmobiles around the world.
The founder of the company, Igor Akrapovich, spent many hours racing and knew thoroughly how to ensure the maximum performance of the models he had ever ridden. Unsurprisingly, he continued to develop his skills in tuning and especially in the design and manufacture of exhaust systems, and it is all the more not surprising that the company, headed by him, continues to hone the principles laid down in it.
Akrapovič is extremely proud of this next chapter in its motorcycle history, ”said Uroš Rosa, CEO of Akrapovič. -Partnership with one of the legendary brands, whose principles and history in many ways resemble our own – this is another big step for our company. Considering that Domenico Agusta and Igor Akrapovic both came from racing and each of them created a global brand based on their skills, aspirations and passions, our cooperation is an absolutely natural and very important stage.
