New Hayabusa unveiled with ABS and Brembo brakes

Suzuki have released details of their new-for-2013 Hayabusa. The big capacity sports bike will get only it's second update in it's fourteen year history, and becoming a member of the GSX-R family. The main changes to the newly-named GSX-1300R will be the addition of more stopping power, in the form of Brembo monobloc calipers and ABS, bringing it in line with...

Why the hype?

Not much has changed there, its just received some technology that's been around for oh I dunno, 20 years on bikes? Stonking motor, still fat and ugly. How about traction control and a face-lift? On this topic, I still don't understand why bikes are top-end restricted, you're no more of a danger to the road at 320km/h than 299km/h. Hyper bikes aren't that hyper anymore, the 1000cc bikes are faster. Kinda sad really. I'll remain faithful to my ZX14, but only because I'm tall and need more room. They just don't have the presence and respect they once had.

Here in Holland there is a subculture with people from the Antilles street drag racing these's Bussa's. Sometimes you see one strugling on a roundabout with their extra long swingarm. I wouldn't ride one, but if your'e all about being the fastest in a straight line? Why not. Suzuki engines can take so much punishment. Ghostrider, of course hè might be crazy. But his GSXR hits the rev limiter for about 12 minutes and it keeps running. Lookin forward to you-tube video's with turbo from this beast.

Always amusing reading the small words from, the "also rans", the "never will have's" and other lesser bike owners.

I remember when I got my first Abusa in early 2000, when very few were on the road. That was when other bikers suddenly stopped nodding or waving at me..... ahhh the smugness of feeling their petty little jealousy.

Busa is and always be King even when its long gone. No other bike will ever do that.

Suzuki have been making ultra fast bikes since the late 1970s GSXR750. Taken BMW this long to catch up, yeah thats a statement.

Only two brands of bike in our garage, Suzuki first, Kawasaki second. Had my share of fast Kawasakis but come down Santa Pod with me sometime and see which bike model totally dominates the racing? I'll be more than happy to show you.

If it ain't broke.....

......as the saying goes. Nothing much wrong with the Hayabusa that needed fixing. It was the feel of the old brakes that was odd. They certainly stopped well enough, I sprinted my old 'Busa and used it in LSR events, never had a problem stopping but they weren't one-finger brakes. I ride a ZZR now but still admire the old Suzuki which has a massive following. A great bike. Just wait for all the complaints when Suzuki eventually scrap it in favour of something new.
