As part of MCN’s lookback on a decade of the Suzuki Hayabusa in the December 23 issue of MCN, we’ve interviewed the man responsible for designing it.

Koji Yoshiura was the man responsible for designing the controversial but aerodynamic look of the original 1999 Suzuki GSX1300R as well as the latest K8-K9 model Hayabusa.

In our exclusive, shockingly candid interview, find out:

How it nearly wasn’t a 1300
Why he meant it to be ugly!
What the future holds for the Hayabusa

That’s all we’re giving away online– for the full story on designing the Hayabusa, check out the Wednesday, December 23 2009 issue of MCN.
