Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SIMPL) opened bookings for the 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa. In India, the booking amount for the super sports bike is Rs 1 lakh. Suzuki India had showcased the Hayabusa at the 2018 Auto Expo, Delhi. Recently, Suzuki stopped the production of the Hayabusa in Japan. However, the company will continue to sell the bike in the global markets till the stock lasts.
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.
