Everything motorcycle at EICMA. This line fits in perfectly for this gigantic and most-popular global event. EICMA isn’t a platform just for bike manufacturers to showcase their motorcycles, but also for brands that make motorcycle accessories. And that’s where Akrapovič comes into the picture.
Akrapovič has used the prestigious EICMA show in Milan to present to the world its new range of exhaust systems for Triumph Modern Classics, with an exhaust system for the Triumph Speed Twin being displayed for the first time at the Italian event.
This stunning range of exhaust systems has been specifically designed to complement the look of the bikes, using traditional Akrapovič colourways such as a titanium natural surface and matte black coating, perfectly matching the culture of the modern classic look. The systems have been developed to change the sound and optimize power through the entire rev range and torque – especially in the mid to high rpm zone.
The first exhaust to be shown to the public is an Akrapovič Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhaust system for the Triumph Speed Twin and Thruxton 1200, with more exhausts for the range being developed for release soon, including the Bonneville T100 and T120 and the Scrambler 1200. The Slip-On Line will have a unique soundtrack, offering a deeper, thrilling tone, which provides an instant feeling of power. This unique sound comes to life as soon as the engine fires up, and as the revs increase the exhaust expresses the engine tone even further.
Fully compliant with EC/ECE type approval, this new range of Akrapovič exhausts is lighter than stock, which is achieved with various materials and construction, with the titanium outer sleeve as standard (the titanium natural version for the Bonneville T100, T120 and Scrambler 1200; black-coated for the Speed Twin / Thruxton 1200) with an engraved logo or monochrome logo sticker, all finished with silver or black-coated end caps and black-coated heat shields.
The new collection of Akrapovič exhausts for Triumph Modern Classics offers an innovative, appealing, design-led, lightweight addition, in keeping with this range of bikes, while delivering an aural delight sure to be enjoyed.
