We’ll remind you the bike is powered by a 1,170 cc Boxer engine that lets the rider play with 110 hp (coming at 7,750 rpm), all the way up to 8,500. The unit delivers a maximum torque of 120 Nm ( 88 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm.
"The RS-3 exhaust is race bred and has the unmistakable look and sound of Yoshimura. It is also one of our most popular exhausts because it's a reasonably priced alternative to some of our more "exotic" mufflers," Yoshimura says in a statement for the press. "The RS-3 has the classic good looks preferred by many riders and just like every single pipe we make, the RS-3 packs a whole lot of performance into an attractive package," they add.
The RS-3 mufflers feature a straight baffle that leads to a single turndown tipped aluminum end cap. The oval-shaped muffler is capable of housing a low-volume Yoshimura insert.
Muffler sleeve options for the RS-3 include polished stainless steel, titanium, and carbon fiber. A high-exit option is available for select bike models.
The RS-3 comes as a bolt-on or slip-on muffler and of course attaches simply onto the OEM (stock) exhaust mounting slip-fit or mounting flange. It can also attach to various full Yoshimura exhaust systems.
