The Akrapovič Full Moon Concept has been developed in collaboration with Slovenian Dreamachine Motorcycles – the same partnership that produced the Morsus concept in 2011.
Designed to be a continuation of this concept, the Full Moon is, like its predecessor, an extravagant, promotional motorcycle.
The bike was developed with the goal of avoiding a specific category, and is a mix of futuristic, sleek styling cues with other elements typical of custom bikes.
The frame and bodywork are made entirely of sheet metal and form an extension to the exhausts. The bodywork is thus part of the Akrapovič exhaust system—an integral part, in fact—and the bike itself is essentially an exhaust.
The name comes from the huge aluminum and carbon thirty-inch front wheel, which is completely visible, giving the impression of a full moon and making a huge statement of what this bike is about.
The engine is an S&S Knucklehead 1,524 cc engine coupled with two modified custom-made Akrapovič exhausts.
Other highlights include the thirty-inch composite wheel and the composite braking disc.
The steering is completely automated, which allows a minimalist steering rod without any visible cables that would otherwise be required for the bike to function. The Full Moon can also stand upright when parked, courtesy of its hydraulic suspension.
The development and construction process took eight hundred hours.
