IT is the icon by which all sports bikes are measured. It is legendary. It, in its 2018 form, is now available in Australia. It is, the Suzuki Hayabusa.
Shocking the motorcycling world upon its inception in 1999, famous for its sensational power, speed and overwhelming presence, the Hayabusa is named after the Japanese bird of prey capable of speeds in excess of 300km/h.
Powered by a muscular 1340cc four-cylinder engine boasting 145kW of power and delivering a broad wave of torque, peaking at 155Nm at a screaming 7,200rpm, it’s no stranger to effortless acceleration.
Equipped with top shelf radial mount Brembo monobloc front brake calipers, promising tactile feedback to the rider and increased initial bite to tame the Hayabusa’s incredible power, the new model features a host of standard equipment.
The Antilock Brake System (ABS) unit features a lightweight, compact design. 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.
This iconic hyper-sports bike features the advanced Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) giving the rider a choice of three available engine maps to suit rider preferences and riding conditions.
The 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa is available in two new aggressive and sporty styled colour schemes – Glass Sparkle Black and Pearl Mira Red/Pearl Glacier White, and hits the tarmac at $20,790 ride away.
