More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed a machine so unique that it instantly attracted a devoted following around the world. Like its namesake, the Japanese peregrine falcon, Hayabusa is famed for cutting through the air with incredible agility and performance.
It combines massive thrust, unmatched maneuverability, and a silky smooth ride on city streets or the open road. Beneath its windswept design beats the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa engine. The resonating feel of pure power evokes an attitude of bold authority from both machine and rider.
Through countless engineering refinements of the original design, the Hayabusa spirit has endured. Its incomparable performance delivers a fun and sporty ride at any speed, setting the bar high for rivals and defining the "Ultimate Sport Bike." The radically original yet timeless styling also reflects the spirit of the person who owns a Hayabusa.
At the turn of the 20th century Suzuki surprised the world by introducing the Hayabusa. Over the last decade, the motorcycle has evolved while staying true to its concept-the pinnacle of high-performance motorcycles. Its sensational power, speed, smooth ride and overwhelming presence continue to fascinate owners and onlookers alike.
The addition of a new ABS and Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers takes the Hayabusa and rider to new heights. We invite you to become an owner of the Hayabusa key, and feel the beat of Hayabusa as you fly through the streets. Join us and become a proud owner. May your heart beat in unison to the Hayabusa. Because the Hayabusa is, and always will be, the ultimate sport bike.
It is available in three colors: Pearl Vigor Blue / Pearl Glacier White (AJP), Metallic Thunder Gray / Grass Sparkle Black (AA3), Pearl Mira Red / Pearl Glacier White (AGS)
Selectable engine mapping – 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 tighter roads.
Forged pistons and PVD-coated rings: Forged three-ring aluminum-alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength. The oil control ring on each piston is electro-plated with a chrome-nitride coating applied in a vacuum chamber using a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) system.
The chrome nitride PVD coating is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction while improving cylinder sealing. The upper piston ring also features an L-shaped cross section, with combustion pressure pushing the ring tighter against the cylinder wall to further reduce blowby and increase the force actually pushing the piston down.
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve: The Hayabusa engine is fitted with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throt tle Valve (SDTV) throt tle bodies. Unlike conventional fuel-injection systems, the SDTV system has two butterfly valves in each throttle body barrel. The rider controls the primary valve via a throttle grip, and the engine management system automatically controls the secondary valve, opening it incrementally to maintain optimum intake charge velocity based on engine rpm, gear position and primary valve opening. This precise, carefully controlled system improves combustion efficiency and makes throttle response feel more natural to the rider.
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 new, standard equipment Antilock Brake System (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.
Note : The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.
Inverted cartridge 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.
