It is a cracking start to the new year for everyone in the Indian motorbike community as Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. launched the 2019 version of the Hayabusa and is all set to start the delivery of the Superbike somewhere around the 20th of this month.
I am sure you all are keen to know more about this Superfast motorcycle, isn’t it?
So, let us start!
Being one of the most elegantly sought after and loved motorbike among the two-wheeler community, the Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike series has received and enjoyed huge positive remarks and response in India.
Although the Hayabusa series has been discontinued and pulled out of the European market as of 2018 due to its inability to meet with the current European emission regulations, the lovely sports bike would still be produced and sold in both India and the United States.
The first thing that you would notice when looking at the new Hayabusa is its design which directly translates and gets its external stunning physical design from the peregrine falcon. It still maintains a beautifully streamlined body for the 2019 version to keep its reputation as the fastest motorbike.
The 2019 motorbike model of the Suzuki Hayabusa has been made available in two attractive new color schemes:
- Glass Sparkle Black with silver wheels and Hayabusa symbols.
- Metallic Oort Grey with an added spice of side reflectors just to make it more appealing to the general motorbike community.
The Hayabusa 2019 has an overall curb weight of about 266 kg with the length from the front to the rear measuring 2190 mm and an overall width of 1165 mm.
For better riding experience and effective ergonomics design, the new Hayabusa has a 120 mm ground clearance and a seat height measuring 805 mm from the ground.
The 21-liter fuel tank seating in front of the rider is molded to accommodate the knee, a typical Hayabusa design.
The motorbike can be kick-started with an LED transistorized electronic ignition designed with a 12V 65W on an H9 high beam and 12V 55W on H7 low-beam.
Its engine is a quad cylinder DOHC liquid cooled engine with a 4-stroke and 1340 cc with 197.00 bhp @ 9500 rpm maximum power.
Suzuki made use of their in-house specially designed 10-hole Suzuki fuel injection system with SDTV to run fuel through the engine feeding each of the 4 cylinders as the motorbike shows off its aerodynamic speed.
A 6-speed transmission method was adopted for riding using a constant mesh technique and close ratio along with a wet multi-plate clutch type.
The addition of the Suzuki Drive Mode selector otherwise known as the S-DMS gives riders a tailored control over how power is distributed with respect to different riding conditions.
Handling and Chassis
The chassis of the two-wheeler uses an extruded twin-spar aluminum alloy frame with a rear rectangular frame hereby providing strength at the same time making it light weighted.
Its impressive suspension mix gives easy handling and control even in the tightest of corners and bends with a pleasurable smooth fast ride down a highway.
The front suspension is made from an inverted telescopic oil damped coil spring while its rear suspension also oil damped is a single shock link type suspension.
Wheels and Brakes
Suzuki has used tubeless tyres for the latest model of Hayabusa for both front and rear wheels. The front measures 120/70ZR17M/C while the rear wheel is 190/50ZR17M/C.
The front wheel is equipped with Brembo 4-piston anti-lock ABS brakes which clasps its calipers on the dual front brake rotors.
The rear brakes feature an ABS equipped singular disc and piston brake which provides the speed busting motorbike the ability to come to a halt in a few seconds.
14.68 Lakh approx., New Delhi (ex-showroom).
Hayabusa was the first big bike to be assembled in India back in 2017. They also look to start production of the new generation of the motorbike which might have a faster 0 to 100kmph speed time lower than 2.74 secs and probably with turbocharging.
Suzuki has decided to continue the sales of Hayabusa in India till 2020.
We, at Motorbikes India, believe that the new model of the Superbike will be a big hit amongst the Indian riders once again!
