And each one has been signed by a MotoGP rider. Andrea Dovizioso and double World Champion Casey Stoner have added their signatures to the Ducati Multistrada 1200 exhausts on behalf of the Ducati Team, with reigning champion Jorge Lorenzo and nine-time title winner Valentino Rossi of the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team putting their autographs on the Yamaha YZF-R1 pipes. Moto3 championship leader Brad Binder of Red Bull KTM Ajo Motorsport has added his name to the KTM 1290 Super Duke R version and three-time World Champion Loris Capirossi has put his signature on the BMW S 1000 RR exhaust in his role as the MotoGP safety advisor and BMW M MotoGP expert.
Igor Akrapovič, owner and founder of Akrapovič said: “I am delighted that we will be supporting Two Wheels for Life alongside our partners in MotoGP. This is a very important charity that has done so much for the health of people in hard-to-reach villages in Africa. The Day of Champions at the British Grand Prix is always a big event that is supported by all the MotoGP riders and this will give us a chance to show our support and provide race fans the opportunity to own a unique part of our history, whilst at the same time raising valuable funds for a very worthy cause.”
