Akrapovic Morsus: If Carlsberg built custom bikes...

Factory customs don’t get any more ‘factory’ than this. Say hello to Morsus, a unique custom machine built for aftermarket exhaust giant Akrapovic. They commissioned specialists Dreamachine Motorcycles of Slovenia to build a bike to promote Akrapovics new range of custom exhausts. Morsus is the result. And what a result. It went from drawing to finished article in just two-and-a-half months...

Dear MCN

Do you really think that the majority of bikers aspire to bikes that look like this and have the handling limitations that that bike has. If you've been drawn in by image over substance advertising then you could never be consider an impartial organisation that strives to tell the truth to its reader.

 

Bleeuurggghhhhh!!!

Europeans Too?

I thought only silly Americans went in for this type of thing. Form should follow function, not the other way around.

All Too Common

Way too many people here (USA) ride similar bikes (air-cooled, large displacement V-2 with straight pipes). Unfortunately, many owners are “iron pigs”, so noise laws are not enforced. The noise is unbearable for any length of time.

Well I quite like it...

OK so it'll never keep up with a speed triple on the twisties, or a street trip come to that, or be as useful every day as a diversion with a huge top-box, but that's not what it was built for.

Some of the styling ideas look really good - i agree it's not to everyone's cup of tea but then again neither is a VFR800.

I know loads of people who ride modified harleys every day, come rain or shine, and love them. I just think there's more to our lifestyle than sportsbikes or whatever. I love this bike for what it is - a beautifully put together showpiece. Engineering talent like this should be celebrated.

Cheers,

Baz

Diversion?

This left-pondian wants to know what a “diversion” is.

A bunch of my neighbors have Harley-Davidson’s, but they mostly sit in the garage un-ridden. Meanwhile, I ride either my NXH110 Elite (aka Lead) or NT700V (aka Deauville or “Dullville”) every day unless there is snow or ice on the roads, or I have to transport a bulky item.

Divvy...

Hiya Piglet,

a diversion (or Divvy...) is a very cheap and cheerful 600 from Yamaha.just google XJ600 DIVERSION 600 FA and you'll see what I mean.

Where's you then?

Cheers,

Baz
