Akrapovic is a Slovenian company right? I would have thought BMW would want to create an aftermarket or upscale line similar to their M cars. This would normally be done "in house" but hey, what's normal these days??

I welcome either scenario if it means a better product becomes available. I guess it comes down to whether BMW wants to be considered an exotic motorcycle or a mass production motorcycle.
