Vance & Hines Introduces Road Racing Exhaust for Yamaha R7

The company will also offer contingency support in MotoAmerica Twins Cup in 2022.

 Vance & Hines announced the release of its new racing exhaust system for the Yamaha YZF-R7 motorcycle. This is the latest in a series of products created in the company’s Racing Development Center in Indiana.  

Along with the launch of this new exhaust system, Vance & Hines will have a contingency support program in 2022 for racers who compete in the popular and ultra-competitive MotoAmerica Twins Cup class using the Vance & Hines system. 

Designed for use in closed-course competition, the Vance & Hines Hi-Output 2-into-1 is a complete replacement to the original, factory exhaust system. Constructed in high grade, 304 stainless steel with a fully-serviceable muffler, the two-piece sprung design reduces vibration stress for greater durability against the rigors of racing, while the modular system also makes replacing components from crash damage more affordable. 

Vance & Hines used several proven methods to improve performance over the factory system. Fabricated with hand TIG welded joints, the headers feature a tapered design developed on-track to increase performance by nearly 10% over stock with proper engine tuning. In addition, the system reduces weight by more than seven pounds and has been positioned higher and tighter to the bike to improve ground clearance, allowing for steeper lean angles.  

Besides the R7, the Hi-Output 2-into-1 also fits the core Yamaha MT-07 platform that serves as the basis for the R7 as well as its other variants, such as the XSR700, all of which have been well established as capable bikes for track day builds and in club level racing across the U.S.  

“The Twins Cup was one of the most competitive classes in the MotoAmerica paddock this past season and gave us the perfect environment to hone the performance and design of our new system for the R7,” said Vance & Hines President Mike Kennedy. “Our podium finish at the season finale at Barber means aspiring racers looking to improve their speed in the Twins Cup can have confidence that our system will help them get the most out of their R7 on the track.”   

The Vance & Hines Hi-Output 2-into-1 Exhaust System for the Yamaha YZF-R7 is available now through the Vance & Hines Racing Development Center (RDC) in Brownsburg, Indiana. Retail price is $989.99. Dealer inquiries welcome. Contact the RDC at (317) 852-9057 or at [email protected]
