Yoshimura find a cure for the 2008 ZX-10R’s ugliness

We think these Yoshimura exhaust systems look vastly better than the ZX-10R's stock item

Capable it may be, but the 2008 Kawasaki ZX-10R isn’t very good looking. And the ugliest bit on the bike is definitely the exhaust system, which looks tacked-on and completely out of place on the Ninja. Now, Yoshimura may have a partial solution to the making the ZX-10R look a bit better. The Japanese/American company has launched new exhaust systems – the R-77 and the R-55 – for the Kawasaki.

The R-77 is available in stainless steel, titanium or carbon finish, and provides a 5bhp hike in power, pushing the ZX-10R’s output to 161bhp. The R-55 is available in stainless steel or carbon finish, and performance figures are not available.

If you’re buying a 2008 ZX-10R, we think getting one of these exhaust systems from Yoshimura is an absolute must. Reduced ugliness, reduced weight, better noise, and increased power – what more can anyone ask for?
