Suzuki Hayabusa Overview
The Suzuki Hayabusa has been ruling the top speed roost since its introduction in 1999 with a claimed top whack of above 300kmph. Its major update came in 2008. But other manufacturers too wanted a piece of the top speed cake and the Hayabusa saw many competitors zeroing in on the crown. The Hayabusa still has a lot going for it. Its comfortable ride is still liked by most and the engine is very capable. Fantastic aerodynamics keep wind blast at bay and the Hayabusa proves to be a comfortable long distance tourer. Suzuki also offers a Hayabusa Z model which comes with Yoshimura Slip-on R-77J carbon-end exhaust and two colour options called Pearl Vigor Blue with Metallic Mystic Silver (ASU) and Pearl Bracing White with Metallic Mystic Silver for further exclusivity.
Suzuki Hayabusa Engine & Transmission
Fast forward to 2015 and the Hayabusa still retains its iconic shape and powerful engine, albeit with many sweeping changes incorporated. The in-line four cylinder four stroke DOHC engine is obviously liquid cooled to encourage heat dissipation. Compared to the earlier models, the latest one has a displacement of 1,340cc with an oversquare layout. The ram air induction system, digital fuel ignition system and massive 44mm Suzuki SDTV (Suzuki Dual throttle valve) throttle bodies coupled with 4 valves per head are good enough to get a smooth power output of 194bhp. Peak torque is a generous 156Nm that gives the Hayabusa a relaxed tourer character.
Suzuki Hayabusa Mileage
Fuel efficiency on the Suzuki Hayabusa is surprisingly good considering the size of the engine. One would expect that something with an engine this big would be thirsty urban figures range between 17-18kmpl and highway figures go up to 22-24kmpl bracket. Needless to say all depends on how you ride the bike.
Suzuki Hayabusa Performance and Handling
The Suzuki Hayabusa has always been known for its gentle handling characteristics and comfortable ergonomics. Cornering performance can be demanding for the rider owing to the wheelbase and the weight Hayabusa carries. The engine builds up power in a way that can be scarily fast for first time riders. However Suzuki have thoughtfully provided the bike with an advanced 3 way electronic power delivery drive mode selector system that regulates how much power is to be delivered to the rear wheel depending on riding conditions. This makes it a forgiving bike in some ways atleast. Add in ABS system for braking and it is a safe and attractive buy.
