There are just two unregistered new Suzuki Hayabusas left in the UK – the last bikes available before the model becomes extinct at the end of the year, one of the last casualties of Euro4 rules.
Sadly, this rare pair of endangered black and white beasts offers no chance of breeding, so even if you brought them together from their respective homes (J W Groombridge and Laguna Motorcycles), there’d still be no new models in 2019.

Rumours and hints persist that Suzuki will release a successor, having teased us with the Concept GSX on more than a few occasions over the last couple of years – but it won’t arrive in 2019, and factory sources say it looks unlikely that we’ll see in in 2020, too.
The firm’s legendary GSX-R750 and GSX-R600 are also now completely sold-out in the UK, and there’s nothing in Suzuki’s 2019 line-up to replace either of them – with no hint whatsoever that there are new versions in development for 2020 or beyond.
Suzuki dealers will be pinning a lot of hope on shifting new Katanas by the truck-load in 2019.
