As reported by MCN earlier this week, there are now just two remaining brand-new Suzuki Hayabusas available in the British dealer network, meaning one of your best chances for finding one is now MCN Bikes For Sale.
When the Hayabusa, or GSX1300R, was launched in 1998, it smashed its rivals out of the water and became the fastest production bike in the world - pipping the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird for top spot, which previously held the title from the Kawasaki ZZR1100.
Producing 11bhp more than the Honda and weighing 8kg less, the bike spawned a Japanese arms race to produce the ever-faster hyperbikes, capable of ripping across continents at warp speed without breaking a sweat. The battle to be the fastest was eventually curtailed by a 'gentlemen's agreement' that limited machines to 186mph, through fears of import bans.
Fast forward the best part of 20 years and the Hayabusa recipe remains largely unchanged, with massive dollops of power sandwiched with mountains of comfort - making it the perfect used buy for those wanting to go long distance at high speed.

Sellers Dave Death Motorcycles, on the Isle of Wight, say: "This machine is in great condition and comes with a full dealer service history. A 2009 machine, it has covered just 11,560 miles from new and is finished in the lovely blue and black colour scheme.
"This is the 1340cc updated model with much improved suspension and revised bodywork. The accessories fitted include an R&G tailtidy and a pair of Carbon BOS silencers. Both keys, the owners' handbook and the pillion seat are also present.
"It's also complete with six months' warranty and a year's MOT. All of our dealer facilities are available too, including finance, part exchange and UK delivery if required."
