Akrapovic to Partner Ducati Corse in World Superbike

Posted:

Akrapovic has announced a new partnership with Ducati Corse that will see the Slovenian exhaust specialist become an official sponsor of the Italian company‰Ûªs World Superbike team.

Akrapovic will partner the factory team on the world stage in 2015, and the company‰Ûªs superb exhausts will feature on the Aruba.it Racing ‰ÛÒ Ducati Superbike Team machines raced by official riders Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano in this season‰Ûªs twenty-eight‰ÛÒrace calendar encompassing fourteen events.

During the unveiling of the official team at the Aruba Data Centre IT1 in Arezzo, Italy, the team, the crowd that gathered, the media, and a worldwide audience following the live streaming organised by Aruba.it were able to see the technical support Akrapovic is giving the Ducati WSBK team.

Completely styled from high-grade race-proven titanium‰ÛÓwith some titanium cast parts made in Akrapovic's own foundry‰ÛÓand carbon-fibre end caps, this superb exhaust system has been especially developed for the Ducati Panigale R to make it a lightweight, durable, and performance-enhancing exhaust to assist Ducati in its quest for World Superbike glory.

Akrapovic has already been supporting the Italian manufacturer with bespoke exhaust systems during pre-season WSBK tests‰ÛÓthe most recent of which saw Giugliano top the timesheets at Jerez in Spain‰ÛÓand this new association follows on from the established partnership between Akrapovic and Ducati Corse, which has seen the Grand Prix machines race at the highest level with Akrapovic exhausts since 2014.

‰ÛÏAfter the successful partnership with Ducati in MotoGP, we‰Ûªre honored to announce the extension of this successful partnership into the Superbike World Championship." Uro
The new exhaust system has been developed exclusively for this season‰Ûªs bike with close collaboration between the engineers at Akrapovic and Ducati Corse, taking into account the new 2015 regulations, which stipulate that the bikes competing must be closer to production models. Akrapovic‰Ûªs technical expertise with road models will stand it in good stead to produce an exhaust for the Ducati Panigale R that will be very competitive in the high-action WSBK championship.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªre delighted to confirm that we‰Ûªve extended the existing MotoGP agreement with Akrapovic to the Superbike World Championship, where their exhaust systems and logo will grace the new Ducati Panigale R." Luigi Dall‰ÛªIgna, General Manager at Ducati Corse added. "The world-famous Slovenian company will provide us with their technical support throughout the year, and they‰Ûªve also produced a tailor-made, high-performance exhaust system for our Superbike machine.

"Akrapovic is one of the world‰Ûªs leading specialists in this sector, and together we‰Ûªre aiming for the top positions throughout the year.‰Û
