Yamaha’s new 1000cc sportbike is now a reality, and Yoshimura has been in development with a brand new profile in conjunction with this brand new sportbike.
Alpha’s styling, fit and finish result from investments made in technology, combining decades of experience with the latest in digital design capabilities.
“One look at an Alpha system and you know it’s something special,” said Yoshimura’s R&D Director- Yusaku Yoshimura. “It uses our iconic Tri-Oval design that has a more distinctive shape than traditional mufflers.”
The unique design is especially striking from the rear, where the large-diameter carbon fiber end cap and well-integrated, draw-formed, slash-cut outlet can clearly be seen. But there’s more to the Tri-oval design than its cutting-edge appearance. Along with improved lean-angle ground clearance, the new shape allows better use of internal volume to produce the deep, distinct exhaust note Yoshimura is known for.
What better application to choose than the all-new 2015 YZF-R1/M to introduce a game changing new muffler? Alpha has already proven itself on the race track where extensive development tests have been underway.
