First release of Collector’s Edition exhaust from Akrapovic, but more to come…
Akrapovic Launch Extremely Limited Edition for Charity
Akrapovič recently announced an ultra-limited edition of just 25 exhausts to celebrate its 25th anniversary, which it donated to various charities and partners to raise much-needed funds. Now here are the details of where and when you can try to be the lucky owner of these rare pieces.
The first six exhausts of this limited run of 25 were auctioned off at the Official MotoGP™ charity “Day of Champions” at Silverstone, England during the championship’s Two Wheels for Life charity event yesterday, September 1.
Two Wheels for Life is a charity that has done so much for the health of people in hard-to-reach villages in Africa, initially as Riders for Health and now under its new name.
These stunning exhausts are instantly recognizable, with a unique signature, the Akrapovič “25” logo – which is dedicated to the company’s 25th anniversary – and a number that will not only identify which exhaust it is, but verifies the rareness of these exquisite collectors’ pieces.
Finished in black paint over an ultra-lightweight titanium muffler, some parts have special nano coatings to make sure they stay as good as new after use – that is, if they ever get used. The exhausts are all EC and ECE type-approved. So, if you managed to get your hands on one, you could still fit it on your bike and show it off in its full glory, or even hang it on the wall as a work of art – because they certainly are that.
To add extra value and exclusivity to these fantastic products, each one has been signed by a MotoGP racer. Andrea Dovizioso and double world champion Casey Stoner have added their signatures to the pipes, as have reigning MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo and nine-time title winner Valentino Rossi, as well as Moto3™ championship leader Brad Binder and three-time world champion Loris Capirossi.
Akrapovič donated these unique exhausts together with its partners from MotoGP to Two Wheels for Life, solely aimed at raising important funds for the charity’s life-saving work. The auction was part of the Silverstone Day of Champions, held just before the British MotoGP round, and has become an important part of the Grand Prix calendar.
While Silverstone was probably a little far away, don’t fret – further information about more opportunities to get your hands on one of these rare exhausts will be announced soon. Let’s hope the next chance will be closer to our shores. In the meantime, you can follow Akrapovič on all of its social media outlets and its website, where the Slovenian exhaust specialists will be providing the latest updates on a regular basis.
Igor Akrapovič, owner and founder of Akrapovič, says:
“I am delighted that we will be supporting Two Wheels for Life alongside our partners in MotoGP. This is a very important charity that has done so much for the health of people in hard-to-reach villages in Africa. The Day of Champions at the British Grand Prix is always a big event that is supported by all the MotoGP riders and this will give us a chance to show our support and provide race fans the opportunity to own a unique part of our history, whilst at the same time raising valuable funds for a very worthy cause.”
