Yamaha Mid-Ship Muffler


The Yamaha Mid-Ship Muffler is an exhaust technology incorporated in the Yamaha FZ16 series of bikes. This technology improves mass centralization and low rpm torque by looping the exhaust pipe and locating it in the middle of the bike.

Placing a heavy component such as the exhaust pipe close to the centre of the bike reduces the centre of gravity and weight distribution, which makes the bike much more responsive to directional changes. Also, looping the exhaust pipe increases its the effective length, which has a double effect of improving the low rpm torque and reducing exhaust sound.
