Akrapovic mufflers and systems

Akrapovic history

Akrapovic exhaust mufflers. Akrapovic is a manufacturer of high quality mufflers and exhaust systems for motorcycles and cars. The company is based in Slovenia. In 1977 Igor Akrapovič started racing, however he was not satisfied with the quality of the exhaust systems available at that time in the Eastern Bloc countries and the exhaust systems from the “West” were simply too expensive.

He started a small company where they made their own exhaust systems. This company started with the name Skorpion. In 1993 Kawasaki began testing these exhaust systems in Germany and in 1994 they were used for the first time in international competitions including ESBK and WSBK. After that several other Superbike teams like Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati and Honda started using these exhausts.

In 1997, the name of the company was changed to Akrapovic. After sales had risen sharply, especially in Germany, the production capacity was greatly increased in 1999. For this purpose the company moved to a larger production location. The 450m2 workshop was exchanged for a 3000m2 workshop in Ivančna Gorica. The workshop at this location has since been expanded to 13,000 m2 in 2010.

In 2000, the first WSBK world championship was won by Colin Edwards on the Castrol Honda SP-1. Technical developments continued and in other competitions, Akrapovic exhausts were increasingly used until the MotoGP.
