Furthermore, the company will bring the Suzuki Hayabusa to India as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) unit. The Hayabusa comes with a price tag of Rs 13.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Besides, there are two new paint themes on the offer for the Hayabusa. One of them is 'Black-Grey'  while the other is 'Grey-Red'. Other than the new color theme, there are no changes to the Suzuki Hayabusa.



Suzuki Hayabusa Engine & Power:

The 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa gets its power from a 1,340cc, in-line, four-cylinder engine. This engine is capable of delivering 197bhp of maximum power at 9,500 rpm and 155Nm of peak torque at 7,200 rpm. The bike comes with a six-speed gearbox.

Hayabusa is the Japanese word for the Peregrine Falcon. It is the world’s fastest animal that can reach 200mph in a dive. In 1998, Hayabusa became the first production motorcycle to cross the 300 km/h mark. Then, the bike had the top speed of 312.2 km/h (194 mph).

Traditionally, the Suzuki Hayabusa rivals with the Ninja ZX-14R. Previously, both these bikes regularly challenged each other in the ‘speed-wars’. However, later, Suzuki restricted the top speed to 299 km/h (186 mph) as a 'Gentleman's Agreement' for the rider’s safety.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that Suzuki will introduce the next generation Suzuki Hayabusa by 2022. The next-generation Busa will get a turbocharged engine, upgraded electronic riding aids, and completely new aesthetics.
