The third-generation Suzuki Hayabusa is unquestionably one of the year’s most anticipated new motorcycles. The supersport tourer, dubbed the “quickest Hayabusa ever,” has a price tag of Rs 16.4 lakh (ex-showroom). Surprisingly, the motorcycle’s initial batch was sold out within two days of the price announcement. Customers who purchase one of the first 101 units will receive a free rear seat cowl. According to a new rumour, the second batch of Suzuki Hayabusas for 2021 will arrive in July or August of that year. Its reservations are expected to start next month.
The new Hayabusa is powered by a 1,340cc four-cylinder engine that has been modified to improve performance. New connecting rods, lighter pistons, and fuel injectors are all part of the engine. The revised engine is somewhat less powerful than the old one, which produced 197bhp and 150Nm (7bhp). The calibrated motor now boasts a peak output of 190bhp and torque of 150Nm. It’s said to have a more powerful torque delivery.
The 2021 Hayabusa weighs 2kg lighter than the previous model, thanks to Suzuki’s twin-spar aluminium frame. Its wheelbase, though, remains the same at 1480mm. The redesigned Busa’s suspension system features Showa units with adjusted components and mechanisms. Brembo Stylema callipers and Bridgestone Battlax S22 tyres are standard on the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa.
The 2017 Hayabusa comes with a new six-axis IMU that includes 10 levels of anti-wheelie control, 10 levels of traction control, three power modes, three levels of engine brake control, launch control, hill hold control, cornering ABS, and cruise control, among other features. A LED headlight, a symmetrical dual silencer exhaust system, LED taillamps, LED turn indicators, a new TFT display, a big dashboard, and other upgrades are among the highlights. The Suzuki Hayabusa’s total length, breadth, and height are 2180mm, 735mm, and 1165mm, respectively.
