I've configured apache2 to display folder content with option Indexes in one of my locations, but I really dislike how apache brags about its version and system's version.

How do I remove this message?

You may be looking for the ServerSignature option, specifically:

ServerSignature Off

Should be somewhere in /etc/apache2/httpd.conf (or wherever else your Apache main config file is).

Set to Off the ServerSignature directive.
