Akrapovič founder and owner Igor Akrapovič attended the latest round of the WorldSBK Championship where he was joined by 2015 WorldSBK champion and current championship leader Jonathan Rea from the Kawasaki Racing Team alongside his teammate and former world champion Tom Sykes, both of whom signed Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhausts for the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. Also attending was double race-winner at Magny-Cours Chaz Davies from the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Team who autographed the Ducati Multistrada 1200 exhaust. Sylvain Guintoli of the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team, who won the World Superbike Championship title in 2014, signed the Yamaha YZF-R1 version, and Markus Reiterberger of the Althea BMW Racing Team left his mark on the exclusive exhaust for the BMW S 1000 RR.

Akrapovič has produced these limited-edition exhausts as a run of just 25 exclusive Akrapovič Slip-On Line systems to celebrate the company's 25th anniversary. The company has donated these five signed exhausts in association with its partnered World Superbike teams to CharityStars to auction online and generate funds for Dorna's official WSBK charity, the Fondazione Telethon (www.telethon.it), which is dedicated to funding the best research to find cures for rare genetic diseases.

These distinctive Slip-On Line exhausts are finished in black paint over an ultra-lightweight titanium muffler and all feature a unique Akrapovič signature, as well as being engraved with the special 25 logo, which is dedicated to the company’s 25th anniversary. Each of the 25 will be issued a number that will confirm which exhaust it is and verify the rareness of each item. These are collectors’ pieces, but are also all EC and ECE type-approved, and so the auction winners could fit them to their bikes and show them off in their full glory. Each exhaust has a special protective coating to help preserve the one-of-a-kind markings should they ever get used.
