2011 Yamaha FZ8: Two Brothers VALE Exhaust


Yamaha FZ8 Exhaust

Two Brothers Racing unleashes yet another top level performance exhaust system, this time for Yamaha’s all-new 2011 FZ8.

The sporty and aggressive Yamaha FZ8 comes alive with the addition of Two Brothers Racing’s M2 Slip-on Exhaust System.

TBR’s updated system compliments the FZ8’s naked styling while cutting more excess weight and improving performance. The TBR engineers designed over a +3 horsepower gain and more torque into their FZ8 exhaust system.

Joel Albrecht (Director of R&D) says: “We’re extremely proud of our new FZ8 system. From the incredible throttle response to the great mid-range torque, our new system pushes the FZ8 towards the sport-bike category while keeping the easy-to-use power curve beginner riders appreciate.”

On top of the impressive power advantage the system delivers, TBR R&D also reports a weight savings of over 8 pounds-a true testament to the top-quality materials and made-in-the-USA craftsmanship Two Brothers Racing is known for. The ’11 FZ8 system is built on TBR’s proven M-2 canister platform and features their exclusive V.A.L.E attachment system for a secure, clean fit. It’s available in Aluminum, Titanium or Filament Wound Carbon Fiber construction.

An industry first also allows you to use TBR’s custom shop and take to the podium with style by adding your own flare with color component options and custom badge design.
