The Yamaha Ténéré 700 has been one of the most anticipated middleweight adventure bikes to be released by team blue. It’s already received so much praise and won the much-coveted Red Dot Design award. As the bike is already paved for success, you can expect a slew of aftermarket parts to become available to eventually make the bike more fitting for the purpose it was built for. However, among the first things every owner would modify with a bike is its exhaust system — and Yoshimura is already ahead of the game with its latest offering.
Yoshimura introduces its latest RS-12 slip-on exhaust with stainless muffler designed for the Yamaha Ténéré 700. It features its patent-pending Precision Taper Fit (PTF) insert system that allows you to stick a sound insert or a spark arrestor inside it with ease and no trouble. It also features a special finish that changes color after its first heat cycle just like its other titanium exhaust systems being used by racers. Yoshimura claims that the Ténéré 700 would have improved performance with its exhaust system with a horsepower gain of 3.7 percent and 2.4 percent gain in torque. With its increased fatigue strength, it is also built to be more resistant to scratch and stain and gives you a nice burly exhaust note we all want.
Its main canister is capped off with a carbon fiber end cap and a stainless steel etched custom heel guard. Its shape and fitting will give your rear tire and brake caliper a little more room, while at the same time shedding off some weight from your bike. It is designed, developed, and manufactured in the U.S.A. and is currently priced at $599. Yoshimura would even be throwing in a one-year warranty and free shipping for any orders above $75, and other financing offers. It seems that Yoshimura is doing everything they can to make it much easier to get one of its performance exhaust systems, and the would-be Ténéré 700 owners should take notice.
