Each exhaust is developed on motorbike. Craftsmanship and technology are the main features that characterized our artworks. The production is supported by the use of latest generation software, reverse engineering instruments, press, 2D and 3D laser, robot, bending machine, rolling press, and Dynamometer.
Every single step, from welding to assembly of semifinished works, is handmade using high quality raw material. The result is a total Made in Italy product.
“The desire for new goals and new challenges is the engine of life, and like in any engine, the exhaust is one of the most important component of it. It isn’t a ferrous and static element, but it is an instrument that gives voice and soul to the motorbike."
