Hayabusa – by Suzuki, is acknowledged to be the hottest supersport bike
on the market today. With power that is unsurpassed, sharp handling, and
aerodynamics that help it pierce the horizon, the Hayabusa is today’s
top racing bike. The Hayabusa engine, 1340cc, is liquid-cooled and has
16 valves. The Suzuki-designed Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers gives the
Hayabusa 11% higher performance and smoother ride than most sport and
racing bikes. With an optimum speed of 120-150 mph, it’s not easy to
find a place to ride a Hayabusa full out.
Hayabusa’s radiator (curved, with two computer-controlled electric fans)
and the rest of the cooling system have been redesigned to increase the
cooling capacity. The piston rings have a modern ion plating treatment,
reducing friction and oil consumption. The pistons are fashioned from a
lightweight aluminum alloy, in a new shape and higher compression ratio,
to create maximum performance in any situation. A newly designed exhaust
system has a larger volume and also a closed loop system, meeting
stringent European standards.
The rider has the choice of three different engine settings (the Suzuki
Drive Mode Selector), which allows for optimal engine settings to meet
any driving conditions. Aerodynamic fairings feature ultra low drag
along with the distinctive Hayabusa style; a more muscular design works
with the more powerful engine of latest models. The fuel tank is not as
high, so the rider can snug the helmet in from the wind, and the
windscreen is higher to improve protection against the wind while
providing best aerodynamics for riding.
Rider will also find a complete instrument cluster, with four meters –
speed, tach, fuel, and water temperature along with indicators for S-DMS
mode, gear position, and rpms.
A tough new, bridged aluminum alloy swingarm on the rear wheel has a
cross-sectional shape, giving increased rigidity and a better rear tire
grip for the greater output of the engine. Front brake calipers are
radial mount, allowing for smaller rotors on the front wheel, providing
less weight and better handling.
Taillight is an LED double lens, clear on the inside and red on the
outside, creating excellent visibility. Double headlights are vertically
stacked for more intense light, better distribution of light beam, and
style. High performance tires (standard Bridgestone BT-015s) give
