Suzuki Motorcycle India will soon update its big bike portfolio with the launch of the new 2021 Hayabusa. The company is yet to reveal a launch timeline, although we can expect to see the motorcycle on our shores very soon. While we await that information, here we tell you what to expect from the India-bound 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa.
The India-bound model will be similar to the version sold overseas. The 2021 Hayabusa has undergone a full model change, and while the motorcycle retains the overall silhouette, it now features a two-tone colours scheme, full-LED lighting, a semi-digital instrument cluster with an LCD, split-style saddle, and twin-sided exhaust cannisters. The 2021 Hayabusa weighs 264kg (kerb) and fuel economy is rated at 14.9kmpl. Internationally, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is available in three colours – Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Burnt Gold, Metallic Matte Sword Silver/Candy Daring Red, and Pearl Brilliant White/Metallic Matte Stellar Blue.
The 2021 model uses a BS6/Euro5-compliant, 1,340cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 187.7bhp of power at 9,700rpm and 150Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox that benefits from a bi-directional quickshifter. The latest iteration of the motorcycle benefits from a ride-by-wire electronic throttle system and a revised intake and exhaust mechanism. The company claims enhanced output and torque in the low-to-mid speed range.
The braking hardware on the 2021 Hayabusa includes twin discs with Brembo Stylema, four-piston callipers at the front and a single disc with a Nissin, single-piston calliper at the rear. The shock absorption tasks are handled by upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock.
The 2021 Hayabusa gets the new Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.). The electronic rider aids include five riding modes, power mode selector, traction control, engine brake control, bi-directional quickshifter, and an anti-lift control system. Suzuki has added the Active Speed Limiter that, as the name suggests, allows the rider to set a speed limit that the bike should not exceed.
The upcoming Hayabusa will carry a price premium over its predecessor. We expect the new model to arrive in the Rs 16-18 lakh (ex-showroom) price range.New Suzuki Hayabusa India launch: What to expect?
