Honda is pleased to continue its long-standing partnership with Akrapovič as the Honda Racing Roads and Honda Endurance Racing teams get ready for the 2019 season. Akrapovič will continue to supply both teams with factory full titanium exhaust systems.
Honda’s relationship with the Slovenian brand has been a hugely successful one, spanning over 20 years, and it was with Honda that Akrapovič won its first world championship title in 2000. The partnership has also been a successful combination on the roads, with Akrapovič helping Honda secure 23 TT wins with the CBR1000RR Fireblade.
A pioneer in its field, Akrapovič is widely recognised as a highly innovative materials company and the brand is synonymous with the highest levels of design, performance enhancement and the creation of an unmistakable sound.
Alojz Trstenjak – Head of Racing R&D at Akrapovič:
“Our partnership with Honda, which has lasted more than 20 years so far, is a very important one for Akrapovič in both its racing and commercial aspects. We are privileged to be able to work so closely with them on many challenging programmes, from the demanding closed road racing environment of races, such as the Isle of Man TT, World Endurance Championship and BSB. It is this diversity of competitions that enables Akrapovič to develop our products in the constant quest to optimise power, reduce weight, and develop race-proven materials for serial production products.
Akrapovič was born from racing and Honda shares the same DNA. This partnership with Honda – which led to Akrapovič’s first-ever WorldSBK title in 2000 and many more important wins and titles since then with the Japanese company – has proved the benefits of such a valuable and beneficial collaboration.”
Jonny Twelvetrees – Honda Endurance Racing and Roads Team Manager:
“Honda has many long-standing relationships with partners and ours with Akrapovič is one that spans over 20 years. We’ve had huge success in the past with them and the sound from the exhaust makes our Fireblades very easy to hear on track – it really is an unmistakable sound! I am very much looking forward to the new season and working with the guys at Akrapovič again, and hopefully we can reward all their efforts with some great results on the roads and in EWC.”
