The Hayabusa is quite simply the Ultimate Sportbike. Twist the throttle and it responds with awesome acceleration and crisp throttle response in every gear with an unbelievable top-end charge. Thanks to a lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminium frame and state-of-the-art suspension, that performance is matched by equally impressive handling, providing exceptional control in tight corners, reassuring stability in sweeping turns and a smooth ride on the highway.
The Hayabusa's muscular 1340cc in-line four-cylinder engine delivers a broad wave of torque for effortless acceleration. Its advanced design boasts liquid-cooling, ram-air downdraft induction producing 145kW (195hp) @ 9,500rpm with 155Nm of torque @ 7,200rpm.
Forged pistons and PVD-coated rings
The chrome nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction while improving cylinder sealing. Forged three-ring aluminium-alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength, while PVD-coated rings reduce friction and improve cylinder sealing.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector
The Hayabusa features the unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system, which allows the rider to select one of three engine control maps. The system allows the rider to select a different map to suit personal preferences in various riding conditions, such as choosing one map for highway cruising and another map for twisty roads.
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve
Suzuki's advanced fuel-injection system with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) induction improves combustion efficiency and makes throttle response feel more natural.
Slice through the wind
The Hayabusa design perfectly merges motorcycle and rider. Carefully sculpted bodywork tames the wind to maximise the more-than-ample power of the Hayabusa engine. Extensive wind tunnel testing with a rider on-board helped to find the ultimate shape for high-speed riding. The radical aerodynamic styling and smoother bodywork not only gives the Hayabusa its unique look but also protects the rider from the wind and improves fuel efficiency.
Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers
Lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together calipers, the Hayabusa's top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers deliver better feedback to the rider. The piston diameters were enlarged from 32-30mm to 32-32mm. Larger pistons help apply greater force to the brake disc, which results in increased initial bite and a more controlled feeling.
Lightweight, high-performance ABS
A standard equipment ABS unit features a lightweight, compact design. The ABS enhances brake performance by helping prevent, to a certain extent, wheel locking due to changes in road conditions or excessive braking, by matching stopping power to available traction.
KYB DLC Front Forks
KYB inverted cartridge forks feature a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating surface treatment on the 43mm stanchion tubes to reduce friction and increase reaction to small surface irregularities. The forks provide front wheel travel of 120mm. Spring preload, compression damping and rebound damping are fully adjustable.
Lightweight titanium valves allow the use of light valve springs and high lift while maintaining accurate valve control.
Vertical stacked headlight
Integrated front indicators form the outer edges of the ram air-intake scoop. And a vertically stacked headlight featuring a projector high beam and a halogen-bulb multi-reflector low beam.
Ready for takeoff
Four analog gauges, including step-motor-driven tachometer and speedometer. Round LCD panel includes clock, gear position indicator, S-DMS map indicator, odometer and dual trip meters. Engine-rpm indicator, programmable to blink or stay on between 400 and 11,500 rpm.
Unique tail section featuring streamlined bulges carrying integrated rear indicators and shaped with jet-engine motif. The durable LED tailight, features a clear inner lens and red outer lens.
