The Akrapovic Morsus completed build last year, it was a collaboration between Slovenia-based Dreamachine Motorcycles and motorcycle exhaust specialists, Akrapovic. The project idea born at Akrapovic was targeted at showing that their expertise lay not just in the specialist exhaust world but in the entire motorcycle building domain.
The Morsus is made with titanium, high-quality stainless steel and carbon fibre all the same materials that Akrapovic puts into their exhaust systems . ‘This project was a big challenge for me. I admire the work of Igor AkrapoviÄ very much and I wanted to put together two motorcycle worlds, racing and custom. I followed also an idea of special cycle chrono bike on 26 inch wheels, which was quite challenging, but I´m quite happy with the final result,’ says TomaÅ¾ Capuder of Dreamachine Motorcycles, the man responsible for creating The Morsus.
The bike is powered by a 1852cc S&S V-twin that produces 144bhp, with power going to the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox and belt drive. The engine is fitted to a rigid, custom-built chassis with no downtubes and an integrated chassis. The Morsus rides on 26-inch aluminium-carbonfibre wheels, with Showa radial forks at front and an air-shock from Fox at the back. Twin brake discs with four-piston radial-mount calipers are used at the front and the exhaust system is a titanium unit from Akrapovic.
