Starting back in 1954, the success ofYoshimura as one of the world’s largestperformance aftermarket sportbike exhaustcompanies didn’t happen overnight. Foundedby Hideo Yoshimura, or “Pops”, as he wasknown, he started out with a few dedicatedemployees working in a small race shop. Theshop was quick at pumping out fast race carand bike motors, the reputation of“Yoshimura-built” motors grew and he sooncreated a cult-like following among racingenthusiasts. With this momentum, Popsturned his attention to the U.S.In the mid 70’s, Yoshimura R&D of AmericaInc. was up and running and the newAmerican division was building a reputation just as strong as its parent company had inJapan. In the early days of Yoshimura R&D,legendary tracks such as Daytona andLoudon were the proving ground for the “newkids on the block.” The granddaddy of themall, Daytona, was where the Yoshi crewstaked its claim. The bikes held up to thepunishing high banks of Daytona and thepower was there!Senior Vice President, Don Sakakura, hasbeen running the racing efforts for manyyears now. Starting as a mechanic, Don rosethrough the ranks to the level where today heis running one of the largest racing efforts inAmerica. Don oversees the day to dayoperation of the Team Yoshimura SuzukiRoad Race Team with riders Mladin, Spies,and Hayden. Don also oversees Yoshimura’smotocross and supercross collaboration withTeam Honda and various other racing groups.Don has been instrumental in the manychampionships that Yoshimura has won overthe years and there are many more to be wonon the horizon.

Thebusiness is important also, but racing is theprime focus.In 1954 the business end of the companywas created to make the products availablethat we use in racing. In the beginning,Hideo “Pops” Yoshimura poured his heartand soul into making the most powerpossible and it was only a natural evolutionto make this performance available to thepublic.As time went by we were fortunate and thepublic responded to our products. Slowly,incrementally, the name Yoshimura becamesynonymous with power. The businessstarted to grow, and we grew with the sportwe all love so much...motorcycle racing.
