The demand for aftermarket exhausts are increasing day by day in India , with more people being able afford meaner and more powerful performance motorcycles.Most people don’t seem to care that there is a ban on such equipment in India , which is reflected in the amount of queries we are receiving.So just like our earlier posts on exhaust options for Duke 200 and Royal Enfield Classic 350 , we have decided to do one on The Yamaha R15 V2.

The number one rule for buying an exhaust for your Yamaha R15 is to avoid anything cheap. No good will come from installing an aftermarket exhaust that you get for 2000-3000Rs . There are people who say that they could get you cheap Daytona for 2500 -3000Rs , please ignore them and move on. If you can afford a 1.27 Lakh bike , you can easily afford an exhaust which costs 10,000 Rs.
Please note that some of these exhaust are thoroughly tested with the Yamaha R15 , while some others are not.The ones tested will provide you the desired performance increase , while the ones which are not could give you varied results.

1) Daytona Performance Exhaust
If you are looking for a genuine exhaust for your Yamaha R15 ,the Daytona is the one you should consider first.The exhaust along with other performance upgrades such as ECU kit , was tailor made by Daytona Racing for smaller capacity Yamaha bikes like R15 and the Fz.
It should be one of the better exhausts you will be able to get for your R15.But please note that , none of the Daytona upgrades are road legal and you would have to face the consequences if caught.This warning is even mentioned in the exhaust pack.

2) Joel’s Race Concept Exhaust.
Race concepts is an automobile tuning shop based in Bangalore . They create one of the best performance upgrades and exhausts for Yamaha R15 in India. The company is headed by one Mr. Joel Joseph.
The Joel’s Race concept is one of the better sounding exhaust available in the market.But in the looks department it fails miserably.The manufacture claims that this exhaust can cut the 0-100kmph time by a good 2 seconds.

3)Leo Vince Corsa /Cobra Exhaust
If you want to got in to a much more premium bracket ,try the LeoVince Cobra or Corsa Exhaust system. These exhausts looks really good ,and further has better brand value.The Corsa is cheaper than the Cobra and also has lesser sound . However , we love the sound of the Corsa more, as it seems a bit more mature.
If buying online please do check whether the products are Genuine, as online retailers are not always to be trusted.
Price – Available in Ebay from prices starting form Rs 15000 ( for Corsa) and Rs 18000 ( for Cobra)
Availability – Official distributors : Bachoo Motor and Cycle Company , Mumbai.Contact them via www.bachoomotors.com , or email email@example.com
4 ) Yoshimura Exhaust
Yoshimura exhausts are officially distributed in India by Mumbai based , Ultimate Auto Impex.However,they seem to deal only limited number of Yoshimura products.
The sound of the exhaust is amazing , and they are one of the better looking systems currently available for Yamaha R15.
For this exhaust too, please do check whether the unit you are buying online is genuine, as there are many Replica’s being sold.

5) KRP Exhaust
KRP racing is a tuning shop based in Mumbai.They currently sell wide range of exhausts for bikes such as Yamaha R15 and Fz.These exhaust do look better than the ones from Joels’ Race customs. And the sound seems to be on-par , or even better than the Race Concepts. However since we don’t have first hand experience , we are not judging much about this one.
