For 2014, you can count on Yoshimura-backed off-road racing teams to be testing an unparalleled amount of equipment. Our extensive testing with a variety of makes and models forms the foundation of our research and development of performance exhaust systems and hard parts and engine kits for everything from small-displacement dirt bikes designed for younger riders to AMA Supercross-winning 450s. Our primary goal is always to discover ways to increase power and performance and - simply put - the more we test, the more we learn.
Yoshimura is backing a number of race teams around the world, beginning with Team Yoshimura Suzuki. In addition, we're supporting RCH Racing's Suzuki RM-Z450, GEICO Honda, Team Honda Muscle Milk, SERCO Yamaha Australia, as well as a huge support team of professional and amateur racers across America through our HookIt Program.
As always, our racing experience supports our goal of making superior products. Building performance exhaust systems for the factory race efforts improves our research and development, which improves the overall performance of our products. Adapting technology we learn on the track to our consumer products is what makes the Yoshimura name synonymous with quality and performance. One look at our RS-9 and RS-4 exhaust systems illustrates the endless cycle of development. Working in conjunction with the factory teams has provided us with new ways to increase performance, lower sound levels and centralize mass. The end result is a product that gives you an unparalleled competitive advantage.
