Slovenian firm Akrapovič has gradually been ratcheting up its presence in the OE sector, with many major manufacturers using its products. And now Triumph has joined BMW, Honda, Yamaha, KTM and more, by signing a long-term supplier agreement with the exhaust maker. The deal will see the premium pipe benders work with Hinckley on its adventure and roadster products, as well as unspecified ‘special projects’.
Nick Bloor, Triumph Motorcycles CEO, said: “This collaboration is about offering our customers even more choice. Working with Akrapovič to develop new exhaust systems for our upcoming models, we can give riders the opportunity to enhance the response and feel of their new Triumph, knowing that the two have been developed side by side.”
Davorin Dobočnik, Akrapovič CEO, added: “As a company, we are delighted to be entering into this new collaboration with Triumph. We are honoured to cooperate with such an iconic brand with a huge heritage. As companies, we share similar values, and our engineers are already working alongside those from Triumph to develop systems for Triumph models, including versions that will surprise many. This is an exciting and important collaboration for us, and it is one that we are all eager to be involved with to see what we can achieve.”
