- 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa likely to be powered by the same 1,340cc engine
- Chassis is also likely to remain unchanged
- Updated styling and electronic aids could be on the cards
Ever since the discontinuation of the iconic Suzuki Hayabusa, we have been coming across a host of rumours about its revival. A few reports in the past had suggested that the next-generation Hayabusa will be a heavily revised version of its predecessor. It was speculated to get a larger 1,440cc, turbocharged motor with a host of new electronic aids. However, a new rumour about the bike has surfaced online which claims that the new Busa will not receive as major updates as previously expected.
The 1,340cc, inline four motor of the Hayabusa will reportedly receive revisions only to be compliant with the new Euro5/BS6 emission norms. There will be reworked intake and exhaust ports for the same. The power figures might also be close to what the discontinued model produces – 197bhp and 155Nm. Moreover, the chassis of the hyper sports offering will also be left untouched.
While the aforementioned part may be a bit of a letdown for the Busa fans, they will be happy to know that the electronics and suspension setup might receive substantial alterations. What’s more, the design of the next-gen Hayabusa, although it will not be entirely new, Suzuki will sharpen and smoothen it a bit to look fresh and more modern. A glimpse of its expected styling can be seen in the render shown above.
The international unveiling of the new Suzuki Hayabusa is likely to take place sometime in 2021, which should be followed by its India entry at a later stage. Interestingly, we will see multiple new models from Suzuki next year. The brand’s president Toshiro Suzuki had previously revealed that they plan to launch 10 new products, mostly big bikes, by the year 2021.
