Suzuki HayabusaGenIII Introducing the 3rd Generation of Ultimate Sport
When launched in 1999, the first generation Hayabusa shocked the motorcycle world by delivering a whole new level of speed, power and overall performance. It instantly gained the title of the world’s fastest production motorcycle and gave birth to the Ultimate Sport category. Even though the industry’s adoption of a self-imposed speed limit soon put an end to the era of top-speed wars, the Hayabusa’s outstanding performance across all metrics, combined with its nimble handling and eye catching appearance, kept it in the category’s number one position for the past two decades.The original Hayabusa was much more than the sum of its parts. The abundant power offered a wider range of gear selection options for any given speed, and this ultimately delivered a more controllable and pleasurable ride. Aerodynamic styling that instilled the Hayabusa with one of the lowest drag coefficients achieved on a production motorcycle not only contributed to controllability, stability and rider comfort, its striking unique bodywork and styling design contributed in achieving the Hayabusa’s iconic presence.The 2nd Generation launched in 2008 retained all the hallmark features of the original Hayabusa, whilst increasing engine displacement to 1340cc and introducing several new features that included a bold new body design. Further enhancement of performance in 2013 saw upgraded front brakes and introduced an Anti-locking Brake System (ABS).Suzuki’s team of engineers and designers have been working tirelessly since to refine countless aspects of the bike’s performance to create an entirely new generation that is poised to carry a new generation of Hayabusa riders into the future.The third generation Hayabusa leverages the latest technological innovations to provide greater control and comfort, and ultimately to assist riders in gaining confidence as they enjoy outings on the ‘Ultimate Sport Bike’.
