Every single product is thoroughly tested and crafted to the highest possible standards, and this is highlighted at this year’s EICMA.
Akrapovič’s unstinting desire to keep its position ahead of the competition is further demonstrated at the stand with its latest high-tech machine, the real durability dyno robot. Visitors have already had a chance to witness this robot first-hand and see how an Akrapovič exhaust is subjected to intense durability tests to make sure the company delivers the best products available to its customers.
