About Suzuki Hayabusa
The Hayabusa was not available for sale in India till the end of 2007, now though the flagship Suzuki motorcycle is here and gets regular updates in tandem with the global revisions.
The legendary motorcycle is available in three new colours- pearl vigor blue/pearl glacier white, metallic thunder gray/grass sparkle black and pearl mira red/pearl glacier white. The massive Hayabusa is a looker and despite the large dimensions, the lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminum frame minimises weight while maintaining high torsional strength.
The Hayabusa boasts of vertically stacked twin headlights that provide increased light intensity and improved light distribution to match the flow of the Hayabusa styling. The advanced aerodynamics offer wind protection both for normal and completely tucked-in seating positions. The motorcycle features a new ABS system and Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers. The instrument cluster gets four analog meters for speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and water temperature with an S-DMS mode indicator, gear position indicator and an adjustable engine-rpm indicator.
The unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system allows the rider to select one of three engine control maps to suit personal preferences in various riding conditions. For instance, the rider can choose a map for highway cruising and another map for tighter roads.
The Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 GSXR is powered by the four-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC 1300cc engine that churns out 197bhp of power and 155Nm of torque. This motor is mated to a six-speed constant mesh gearbox. The motorcycle is equipped with most of the features a superbike boasts of and is one of the fastest motorcycles in the world.
The Suzuki Hayabusa has always had a great fan following. The motorcycle was the fastest bike in the world till the Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R was launched. The motorcycle’s silver screen outing also won it many admirers. It was used in a motorcycle race sequence in the popular movie Dhoom.
