More and more concept cars or motorcycles dazzle people both with their amazing specs and their futuristic looks. The Akrapovic Full Moon concept motorcycle is definitely such a vehicle. Considering its intriguing shape, at a first glance, you might wonder whether this concept bike comes straight from a sci-fi movie. It was recently unveiled at the Bad Salzuflen Custombike Show in Germany.
The styling approach of this motorcycle is clearly something unique and out of the ordinary. The design of the Akrapovic Full Moon motorcycle borrowed Art Deco motifs, giving a rather flamboyant look to the overall result. The name of the concept motorcycle is said to come from its aluminum and carbon thirty-inch front wheel. The size of the wheel is impressive considering the fact that it is 13 inches wider than the front wheel of a Ducati 1299 Panigale and 11 inches wider than the front wheel of a Harley Davidson Road Glide. The company also explained that its massive rear end “doesn’t hide the exhaust, it is the exhaust.”
The Full Moon motorcycle was created to avoid being categorized. As the company wrote on their website, it is the “bike that belongs nowhere and everywhere, making it a unique motorcycle.” The development of this latest Akrapovic motorcycle took more than 800 hours. It features a S&S Knucklehead 1,524 cc engine and two modified custom-made Akrapovič exhausts. The frame and the bodywork of the bike are made completely from sheet metal and form an extension for the exhausts. Overall, we can say the bike itself is an exhaust. The motorbike also comes with a composite braking disc, a feature previously unseen on bikes of this scale.
With its unique features and design, the motorcycle surely stands out, making it for the moment the gem of the company. What do you think of the Akrapovic Full Moon concept motorcycle? Would you like to see it on the streets?
