The new shape is an evolution of the hexagonal exhaust, which caused a revolution in the world of motorcycle design in 2005. In 2013 Igor Akrapovič and Uroš Rosa, Akrapovič company CEO, launched a bid for designs for the new exhaust. Numerous ideas arrived, some were extremely good, but not one was perfect or optimal, so the company decided to forego all of them. The final selected idea came from Igor Akrapovič himself. “The idea was to create an overall better - and not just a better-looking - exhaust, while maintaining all the positive qualities of the old exhaust,” explained Igor Akrapovič.
