Igor Akrapovič is a remarkable man, who’s earned his eponymous exhaust company’s soaraway success and its A-1 Dun & Bradstreet business rating through a combination of hard work, commercial honesty, clever development, and an insistence on quality. All this in turn has made his name synonymous with excellence in exhausts both on and off-road, delivering added performance coupled with dependable durability.
So while added performance is still the USP that drives demand for the more than 100,000 complete exhaust systems and over three times as many slip-on silencers produced each year by the company’s 650 employees in its 25,000m² factory at Črnomelj, with another 200 workers employed in the R&D, Racing, and other specialist departments in the 8,000m² corporate HQ at Ivancna Gorica, 45min south of Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana, there are different key factors at play in making Akrapovič products appealing to non-performance focused customers in the V-twin cruiser cult.
So in order to promote his company’s wares to this quite different market sector when his new range of Harley custom exhausts was launched, Igor Akrapovič commissioned the creation of a unique custom bike doubling as a corporate statement that was built for him by Slovenia’s longest established and most expert custom bike specialist, Dreamachine Motorcycles in Ljubljana.
The Full Moon has a personality and characteristics completely different than its predecessor’s, aimed at further exciting those impressed by Akrapovič’s first custom machine. Its name comes thanks to the huge thirty-inch aluminum and carbon front wheel, which when viewed from the side gives the lunar look that Capuder conceived before starting work on building his creation not long before it made its public debut.
So over eight hundred hours went into creating this superbly finished machine, which features a 1,524 cc S&S ohv Knucklehead engine fitted with two custom-made Akrapovič exhausts connected by a link pipe. The hidden single-loop backbone frame with duplex engine cradle and integrated monocoque fuel tank, plus the single-sided swingarm and voluptuous bodywork, are all made entirely of 4130 chrome-moly steel, and incorporate the Akrapovič pipes, so that the bike itself is essentially an exhaust, says Igor Akrapovič.
For since its debut the Full Moon has been showcased at many exhibitions and fairs around the world, drawing customers’ attention to the Akrapovič range of complete exhaust system. Akrapovic claims its pipes not only sound good, but are lighter that stock and increase both torque and power while still meeting EPA requirements in the USA, and Euro 3 in Europe.
The Full Moon is like no other bike on Earth – or the Moon! – and Tomaž Capuder well deserves to be so proud of having created it.
