Video: Akrapovic Morsus - If Carlsberg built custom bikes…

Published: 05 December 2011

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 Akrapovic’s new range of custom exhausts. Morsus is the result. And what a result...

In this week’s MCN we reveal how Morsus went from drawing to finished article in just two-and-a-half months and has since gone on to win major European custom show championships. Not only that, but we travel to Slovenia to ride it and we’re not disappointed…
