This legendary machine was introduced to India only towards the end of 2007, and they were only imported at that time. Considering the popularity this motorcycle enjoys globally, it was only a matter of time before Suzuki started assembly in India. This has ensured that the bikes sold in India also get the same upgrades as their global counterparts. Assembling the bike in India has also helped in bringing down the price of this already expensive machine by close to 2.5 lakh. It may not be the fastest bike on the planet, it still has enough oomph to take your breath away.
It is currently priced between Rs 13, 57, 000 and Rs 16, 20, 000 (Ex-Showroom Price, New Delhi) but the prices may vary from place to place.
The Hayabusa features the only one of its kind Suzuki Drive Mode Selector system allowing the user to choose from any one of the three engine control maps. The right selection enables better and optimum performance according to the road and traffic conditions as well as personal tastes. Suzuki’s dual throttle valve also enables better fuel combustion improving efficiency and making the throttle response to the rider more natural. The lightweight and compact ABS unit also adds to the safety of the rider by providing better traction.
The icon sports a 1340 cc liquid cooled DOHC engine that is four stroke with four cylinders that churns out a massive 155 Nm of torque @ 7200 rpm and 197 Bhp @ 9500 rpm. The unbeatable combination of thrust and manoeuvrability coupled with a silky smooth ride is close to perfection on two wheels. The six speed gearbox offers phenomenal acceleration and in fact this was once the fastest bike.
The bike’s advanced aerodynamics provides for wind protection in normal or tucked in riding posture. The vertically twin stacked head lamps provide great illumination for the long night cruises. The instrument console clearly shows all the basic information clearly to the rider. The balance and stability of the bike inspires confidence even at very high speeds and is fun to go around bends.
