Suzuki heavily updated the Hayabusa for 2021, not only with fresh styling but also packing it with lustrous electronic aids. We recently had the chance to ride the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa and you can read the comprehensive review HERE. And in this article, we bring you some images from our road test for you to ogle at.
Donning the silhouette of the previous generations of Hayabusas, the 2021 model looks similar. However, subtle changes to its bodywork have made it sharper and more aerodynamic than before. Suzuki has also paid attention to detail while incorporating the styling from older versions.
The Suzuki Hayabusa continues with a 1340cc, inline-four engine as before. Although, the motor now churns out 188bhp i.e 7bhp lesser than the previous model. But does it feel slower? Read the road test to find out.
But we can tell you that the ‘Busa handles brilliantly for a motorcycle that weighs 266kg. Suzuki have worked on distributing the weight in a 50:50 ratio for better stability and agility. Cornering is not entirely effortless, but feels quite easy on the 2021 Hayabusa.
The riding position it offers is apt for what the bike is- a supersport touring motorcycle. Its seat has enough space for large riders and is well-cushioned too, feeling immensely comfortable after 6-7 hours in the saddle.
Now, the 2021 Hayabusa gets a host of electronic aids. There are three power modes with traction control, wheelie control, engine brake control. The motorcycle also offers launch control, cruise control and hill-hold assist as standard.
It comes with a decently large 20-litre fuel tank. And as for fuel efficiency, the ‘Busa returned around 13kmpl in the city and close to 20kmpl when ridden sanely on the open highway.
To conclude, the Hayabusa feels more versatile than before even in this lesser peak power avatar. The addition of electronic aids and fine tweaks to its braking and suspension have also added value to a package that brought quite a lot to the table.
