RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: UNRIVALED

Yoshimura is renowned for its Research and Development. But producing the finest exhaust systems in the world requires more than a big R&D department. Yoshimura is the leading manufacturer of exhaust systems because our commitment to R&D is matched by our dedication to uncompromising quality standards and our expertise in manufacturing pipes that meet those standards.

From the company's beginning, we've understood that cutting-edge research and development sets Yoshimura apart from the competition. That's why we built a completely separate facility dedicated only to R&D. Creating an environment where everyone is focused on a single mission allows our talented technicians to develop improved designs while continually raising the bar on product quality. The Yoshimura motto is simple and has not changed since the company's inception: Make the best parts possible, and never compromise.

Actually producing exhaust pipes that meet our quality standards is no simple task, but our manufacturing group consistently pulls it off. The attention to detail and old-world craftsmanship that goes into making Yoshimura products is impossible to replicate with a machine. The technicians at work here are artists; the exhaust systems they produce are pieces of art. All of this talent, tools and raw metal come together to form the best exhaust systems in the world.

Pops had quite a talent at modifying existing parts to make more power.

HIDEO "POPS" YOSHIMURA

POP -
Whenever I think about the 8 hours endurance race, the memory of POP comes into my mind. In 1978 when the first 8hours endurance race took place in Suzuka, I just recall POP's face with the biggest grin on his face when Team Yoshimura got the winning checker flag.

FUJIO YOSHIMURA

The Flame of Yoshimura's Spirits Passed on Forever
Since Yoshimura's establishment, it's won numerous races in a fashion which other race teams could not imitate. Their means were to overcome limited facilities by man's wisdom and cover scarce funds with their own efforts. In this way, they were able to bring out their potentials which lead to original ideas and challenges to new technology. Their faith which could be called "The Yoshimura Spirit" has been passed on since the "Gannosu Race" of the 1950's in Kyushu until now.
