- 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa to be unveiled tomorrow
- Gets a lot of changes over its predecessor
- India launch could take place in the first quarter this year
The next-generation model of one of the most iconic sportsbikes, the Suzuki Hayabusa, is all set to be globally unveiled tomorrow, 5 February. This will be the third-generation iteration of the bike and it will incorporate a host of changes over the previous version which was discontinued in the international markets in 2019 and in India last year.
A promotional video of the new Suzuki Hayabusa was leaked recently revealing a handful of details about it. Firstly, it boasts a new styling with sharper edges all across. Changes have been executed to its front fascia, fairing and the tail section. The dual exhaust too looks much sleeker now. However, the motorcycle seems to retain its bulbous proportions which have always been a talking point about the Busa.
The video has also revealed that the new Hayabusa will be technologically more advanced. Exemplifying this is the presence of a TFT screen at the centre of its same old analogue console. It will also be equipped with a number of rider aids like a quick shifter, wheelie control and traction control. As for its engine, there isn’t any concrete information about the updates it will receive. But rumours suggest that Suzuki has chosen to up its displacement to 1,400cc in order to extract more performance from the engine while complying with new the Euro5/BS6 emission norms.
After the global unveiling, the new Suzuki Hayabusa will be launched in the international markets which should be followed by its India launch in the first quarter this year.
