Stunning Full Moon Motorbike Concept


We'll give you three guesses as to who made this curved vision of a motor bike. Movie concept artist? Try again. Video game designer? Not even close. Fine, we'll save you from embarrassment - its creators usually make exhaust pipes.

Bet you want to see what their exhausts look like now, don't you?

Hailing from Slovenia, Akrapovic is an exhaust system specialist with a talent for dreaming big. Created in partnership with the Slovenian Dreamachine Motorcycles, this is the Full Moon - a concept motorcycle built to turns heads at this year's Bad Salzuflen Custombike Show in Germany. The name derives from the impossibly large 30-inch front wheel, a solid construction made from aluminium and carbon. The lump of an engine is a 1,524cc V-twin S&S Knucklehead, that we're promised makes a noise like a long forgotten deity stubbing their toe. 


To show off their exhaust skills, Akrapovic crafted the entire rear end of the bike from one sheet of metal - thus making the entire rear end of the Full Moon one huge extension of its twin exhausts. 

You'll probably have more luck guessing the bike's price than it's creator - it doesn't have one. This one-off model is set to tour exhibitions before ending up in a display case somewhere, which feels like an extraordinary waste. Keep an eye on where it's headed next at the Akrapovic website
