Ultimate Performance is the perfect balance between power and poise, and between the rider and the bike. Abundant power and torque in any gear and at any speed. Chassis and running gear for nimble handling to put the rider in full control. And all skilfully wrapped in a bold design with an aggressive stance that highlights its luxurious details.
NOTHING COMES CLOSE
Famed for its abundant power, agility and majestic presence. Legendary for establishing new levels of performance, and for retaining the number one position for the past two decades in the class it created. Fast forward to today. Total commitment and tireless effort give birth to a new generation perfectly poised to carry riders into the future. Its riding experience features even stronger power delivery and nimbler handling, a collection of the latest electronic systems designed to optimise performance and make the Hayabusa more controllable and predictable. All this wrapped in a package that will instantly turn heads with its breathtaking style.
LEGENDARY POWER AND PUNCH
The Hayabusa’s 1,340cc liquid-cooled inline-four engine achieves an even better balance of overall performance, with greater efficiency and durability, while also satisfying Euro 5 emissions standards.
Inheriting the legacy of the Ultimate Sports Bike that established the category in 1999, the Hayabusa continues to deliver some of the highest torque and power at engine speeds typically used while road riding. A symbol of engineering pride and prowess, it is built to deliver the ultimate riding experience for the long run.
At the core of this outstanding chassis is the Hayabusa’s aluminium frame and swingarm. A proven combination of extruded aluminium sections and aluminium castings lend the right amount of suppleness and strength to the overall rigid alloy frame structure. While more costly and demanding to fabricate, extruded aluminium sections achieve the overall balance required by a machine that delivers ultimate performance and reaches a nominal top speed of 186mph. The Hayabusa’s chassis is designed to empower you with sure footing, sharp handling and predictable control that combine to build confidence and enhance the riding experience. With its 50:50 weight distribution it effectively transfers the abundant power of its legendary powerplant to the road.
BREMBO STYLEMA® BRAKES
The Hayabusa uses Brembo’s latest Stylema® front brake calipers. Featuring a lighter, more compact and carefully sculpted design intended for use on high-performance motorcycles, these calipers increase airflow around the brake pads to cool more quickly and deliver immediate response. These are paired with front discs with a diameter of 320mm and featuring a hole pattern that helps optimise cooling efficiency.
POISED FOR ACTION
KYB inverted cartridge forks provide 120mm of front wheel travel and feature Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the 43mm inner fork tubes to reduce friction and improve reaction to small irregularities in the road surface. Spring preload, compression damping and rebound damping are all fully adjustable. The internal structure has been upgraded to better absorb the road surface and ensure an even smoother, more stable ride with optimum grip. The internal structure of the fully adjustable KYB link-type rear suspension is also revised to maximise comfort and straight-line stability.
OPTIMUM CONTROL AND COMFORT
Mounting the handlebars 12mm closer to the rider vastly improves comfort and reduces fatigue, particularly when touring or taking long rides. It also enhances handling when enjoying a sporty ride by giving the rider better feedback on how well the front tyre is gripping the road, by better supporting the rider’s posture to improve stability when braking, and by offering the rider greater freedom in movement to control cornering.
SUZUKI INTELLIGENT RIDE SYSTEM (SIRS)
Hayabusa adopts an advanced new version of the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) and a six axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). A complete collection of electronic systems designed to optimise performance characteristics to match the needs of the moment and make the Hayabusa more controllable, predictable and enjoyable. Riders can opt for settings that best suit riding conditions, road surfaces and their level of confidence and experience.
MOTION TRACK TRACTION CONTROL
This technology is adopted directly from the traction control system Suzuki developed for the GSX-RR in MotoGP racing. This takes traction control to a new level by employing data from the IMU to constantly monitor the amount of lean angle and effectively limit slip in corners as well as on straights. It provides greater stability at all times, enabling confident control in varying riding conditions while reducing stress and fatigue. The system offers a choice of 10 mode settings, and it can be turned off when preferred. The higher number the mode, the faster traction control is engaged and the more proactive the system is in limiting wheel spin.
