The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has finally arrived, and the motorcycle packs styling and mechanical revisions in its latest form. The Hayabusa has received a full-model change for the first time in 13 years and here we bring you a detailed image gallery of the motorcycle.
In terms of design, the 2021 model retain the overall silhouette of the Hayabusa models from the past.
There are, however, several revisions. The front fascia, for example, gets an LED headlight and turn signals with built-in position lights. The position lights/turn indicators are placed on the outer edges of the air intakes.
At the back, the 2021 Hayabusa features a twin-pod taillight. Other features include twin-sided exhaust and a rear cowl.
The 2021 model also features two-tone colours. The motorcycle gets different colours for the main body and small parts around the front air intakes, on the side cowlings, and in the rear section.
The updated semi-digital instrument cluster now features a TFT screen in the centre. The TFT screen displays data about the electronic rider aids, gear position, lean angle, clock, and air temperature among others.
The motorcycle gets three colours – Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Burnt Gold, Metallic Mat Sword Silver/Candy Daring Red, and Pearl Brilliant White/Metallic Mat Stellar Blue.
The mechanical specifications include a Euro5-compliant, 1,340cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 187.7bhp at 9,700rpm and 150Nm at 7,000rpm. Suzuki reports a fuel economy of 14.9kmpl. The motor is linked to a six-speed transmission that benefits from a bi-directional quickshifter.
Electronic rider aids include five riding modes, power mode selector, ABS, traction control, engine brake control, bi-directional quick shift system, and anti-lift control system. The rider aids also include an Active Speed Limiter that allows the rider to set a speed limit that the bike should not exceed.
The hardware on the motorcycle includes twin discs with Brembo Stylema, four-piston callipers at the front and a single disc with a Nissin, single-piston calliper at the back. The suspension setup includes upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock. The Hayabusa tips the weighing scale at 264kg (kerb).
