From 2023, the Honda RC213V will be equipped with Akrapovič exhaust systems as the Slovenian manufacturer and Honda HRC sign a multi-year agreement.
Honda Racing Corporation are pleased to announce a new technical partnership with Akrapovič as the official exhaust supplier for the Repsol Honda Team. The partnership will see the Slovenian brand collaborate with Honda HRC to further develop the exhaust system of the Honda RC213V.
