Suzuki Hayabusa India Launch, Suzuki Hayabusa Price in India

Suzuki Hayabusa India Launch Highlights: The Suzuki Hayabusa or GSX-1300R Hayabusa is widely renowned, respected, and admired across the world and the reasons are more than one. The super sports tourer has a special fan following in India and the new third-generation model has finally been launched at a price of Rs 16.40 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), which is around Rs 3 lakh more than the outgoing model. The Busa particularly became immensely popular here after the release of the Bollywood blockbuster ‘Dhoom’ in which Kabir (John Abraham) was seen carrying out high-profile robberies on the bike and every time the policemen failed to catch him, thanks to the might of the Japanese speed king. Suzuki Hayabusa started its life back in the year 1999 and it instantly became the world’s fastest production bike with a top speed of 312 kmph. The bike that was discontinued in India sometime back only to return in a new avatar is all set to be launched in India in just a few minutes from now. And the third-generation model, for obvious reasons, is the best ‘Busa till date.

    No, the new Busa isn't supercharged or turbocharged!

    Reports of the new generation Suzuki Hayabusa being a supercharged or turbocharged motorcycle have been doing rounds on the web for a long time now. While almost all of us had assumed that Suzuki will employ a supercharge on the new 2021 model in order to take the fight to the Kawasaki Ninja H2, well, this didn't turn out to be true. The new model still employs a naturally aspirated engine with a displacement of 1,340cc, having an inline four-cylinder configuration.  

    13:24 (IST)26 Apr 2021
    Pricing may not be as pleasing though!

    The biggest reason behind the added popularity of the previous Busa was its killer price tag. Thanks to the CKD route, the superbike was priced at Rs 13.75 lakh (ex-showroom) that made it cheaper than even most of the 1,000cc bikes. But the new model might not see the CKD route right from Day 1 and hence, it might demand a significant premium over the outgoing model's price and is expected to be priced at close to Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom). Price announcement soon, so stay tuned!

    2021 model is lighter!

    The new 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has shed weight by two kilos compared to the outgoing model. With this, the bike now weighs 264 kg (kerb weight) and this weight reduction is all thanks to a redesigned, lighter, Euro-5-compliant exhaust. Talking of the dimensions, the numbers are more or less the same as the previous model including an identical wheelbase of 1,480mm. 

    11:57 (IST)26 Apr 2021
    The new 'Busa is more tech-loaded

    The new 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa gets a new six-axis IMU along with a 10-stage traction control system and 10-stage anti-wheelie control system. In addition to this, you also get three levels of engine brake control, three power modes, along with cruise control,  launch control. There is also cornering ABS on offer and for those steep uphills, you now have hill hold control. The Busa now gets an all-LED lighting system and while most of the instrument cluster remains analogue, there is now a new TFT display in the center.

    The new Hayabusa sees drop in power. Who cares?!

    While the new 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is a lot more advanced and better in almost every aspect than before, it has witnessed a considerable drop in power. In order to be precise, the bike now puts out 190 hp of power against the previous model that was good for churning out 197 hp and hence, one can see a drop of 7 hp. But, that doesn't mean that the might of the Hayabusa is any lesser now. The bike can still do 300 kmph and this drop in power will have absolutely no effects on its fan following in India.

    3rd-gen Hayabusa - what all has changed?

The bike's electronics package is now better than ever for better safety and control. Also, the engine has been heavily reworked. More details in the next updates!

    The 2nd-generation Hayabusa

    Change is the only constant! And this is the reason manufacturers have to constantly update their products to maintain their presence in a highly competitive market. So, the second-gen Hayabusa arrived in the year 2007. The said model received a minor restyling in the bodywork along with the fine -tuning of engine's head, pistons and also, the exhaust system. The best thing was that the 2nd-gen Hayabusa was more powerful. The bike looked like this.

    Story behind the name HAYABUSA and why it is an intelligent pick?

    The word 'Hayabusa' is Japanese for peregrine falcon - a bird that is very well known for its ability to vertically dive. Moreover, the peregrine falcon is the fastest of birds and it preys on Blackbirds. Well, that was the true intent of the Hayabusa - to dethrone (or prey on) the Honda Blackbird to claim the title of the fastest production motorcycle in the world. And the Hayabusa actually managed to achieve this when it surpassed the top speed of the Super Blackbird by 16 kmph. Interesting, isn't it?

    The 1st generation Hayabusa

    For the simple reason that the Hayabusa arrived as the fastest bike of the 20th century, it instantly became a sensation. The first-gen model started its life in the year 1999 and it continued to be on sale till 2007. The impact of the GSX-1300R Hayabusa was so strong as no other bike was able to break the previous top speed record by such a margin. Here is what the first generation Busa looked like.

    Why the need for The Gentlemen's Agreement?

    When the Suzuki Hayabusa exceeded the top speed of 310 kmph in the year 1999, in the interest of public safety and also, due to fears of a European ban or regulatory crackdown, the Japanese and European motorcycle manufacturers entered into a formal agreement. The said agreement was about limiting the speed of superbikes to a maximum of 300 kmph and hence, it ended the speed battle once and for all. This agreement was named the Gentlemen's Agreement.

    Fastest missile on two-wheels

    When Suzuki launched the Hayabusa for the very first time in the year 1999, it instantly claimed the title of the world's fastest motorcycle with a top speed of 312 kmph. In addition to this, at that time, the Busa was proudly known as the fastest bike of the 20th century, which is certainly a pride for any motorcycle.
