Akrapovic will be the official sponsor of Ducati Corse in MotoGP, from this season,which will support both the factory team and the Pramac Racing.
Akrapovic supports the effort of the Italian factory, providing exhaust systems, since the official tests held in Sepang and Philip Island. Exhaust systems provided at Ducati, by Akrapovic are developed in close cooperation of engineers of the Italian team and technicians of Akrapovic. The systems that will be used by Ducati at the MotoGP are made of titanium alloy to reduce weight and of course increase engine performance.
Akrapovic exhausts will make an appearance on the Desmosedici GP14 of Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow and also to the bikes of Andrea Iannone and Yonny Hernandez of Pramac Racing.
According to the press release of the Akrapovic, cooperation between the two sides has not only to do with the evolution of the exhausts but it is also “a strong technology association of passion and determination to win”.
