Akrapovic Morsus

akrapovic morsusAkrapovic is a Slovenian manufacturer known for their proven exhausts from Moto GP to Enduro and Motocross, Akrapovic is now dabbing into custom motorcycles. Their latest, the Morsus, is a chopperesque beauty with sportbike like ergonomics and suspension. From Dream Machine Customs, she’s a beauty.

The Morsus, is said to be inspired by the scorpion, symbol of Akrapovic. It uses many of the same materials the manufacturer has been mastering for years: carbon fiber, stainless steele, and titanium.

Creator Tomaz Capuder said it was his goal to “put together two motorcycle worlds, racing and custom.” Sure enough, the 113 cubic inch (1,852 cc) S&S motor puts out a claimed 144 horsepower, but as with most show bikes, it’s probably as much fun to look at as it is to ride.
