Not much has changed on the new Suzuki Hayabusa: same wheelbase, rake and trail. However the shock and front forks have been upgraded and the swing arm strengthened. Thankfully the Hayabusa’s brakes are now radial and do an excellent of stopping the big girl, without any fade even on the track. As you expect from the Suzuki Hayabusa you can’t fling it around but if you ride smoothly it’s very rewarding and with a few tweaks makes a decent track motorcycle.
The Suzuki Hayabusa has possibly the most powerful production engine on the market, alongside the Kawasaki ZZ-R1400, Suzuki are quoting 194.bhp and 115ftlb of torque for the Hayabusa. The motorcycle isn’t restricted in the lower gears its full power all the way to the 186mph speed limiter.
Cosmetically the Suzuki Hayabusa has been tweaked, especially the back end, and there’s a noticeable difference in the quality of finish. I like the new look, the quality of finish is top shelf, paint is deep, much improved over the original Hayabusa. Being a Hayabusa reliability is unquestionable.
£9000 for arguably the fastest production motorcycle on the planet, that will be enough to see the new Suzuki Haybusa top the sales charts. Quality of finish has vastly improved; it looks sleeker, but still retains that essential Suzuki Hayabusa character. Find a Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa for sale.

Fully adjustable suspension front and rear comes as standard on the new Hayabusa and like every new big Suzuki motorcycle there’s a three-way power switch limiting power. It’s not just a gimmick you really notice the difference between the power modes, making the Hayabusa less of an animal than before.
