premiering at the bad salzuflen custombike show in germany, the akrapovic ‘full moon’ motorcycle concept developed alongside dreamachine motorcycles, aims to avoid being categorized. its extravagant characteristics and technically exceptional personality reflects this focus and also differentiates itself from their previous 2011 morsus product. however, similar to its predecessor, the ‘full moon’ is designed to excite and with its S&S knucklehead 1,524 cc engine, the model does just that.





the akrapovic concept offers further improved performance features such as the two modified custom-made exhausts, automated steering to reduce the amount of visible cables, and its hydraulic suspension that can fix the bike upright when parked. the name ‘full moon’, is derived from the huge aluminum and carbon 30 inch front wheel, which fits in tune with the sheet metal frame and bodywork.
