If you're a big film buff, then you'll remember the Hayabusa making its debut in Dhoom and has been one of the most popular bikes in India. This is Suzuki's flagship bike and is massive in terms of dimensions. The twin headlamps on the Hayabusa are vertically stacked and this is how you instantly recognize that it's the big bike. The motorcycle features a new ABS system and Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers. Up front, there are four analog meters for speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and water temperature with an S-DMS mode indicator, gear position indicator, and an adjustable engine-rpm indicator. Suzuki's Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system helps to choose between one of three engine control maps. Powering the beast is a four-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC 1300cc engine that churns out 197bhp.
Hayabusa came into existence long back and ever since it has been a constant favourite among bike enthusiasts. The flag bearer from Suzuki motorcycles was introduced in India sometime towards the end of 2007 and has been receiving regular upgrades in alignment with rivals as well as the global model. Dimensionally, the bike measures 2190mm long, 735mm wide and 1165mm high. Wheelbase and ground clearance stand at 1480mm and 120mm respectively, whereas the seat height is around 805mm. Weighing heavy, Hayabusa has a curb mass of 266kg which rests on 120/70ZR17M/C front and 190/50ZR17M/C rear tyres. For power generation, Suzuki has employed a four-stroke, 4 cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC powertrain displacing 1340cc.
The high capacity engine is good for pinnacle power of 197bhp at 9500rpm. A six-speed constant mesh transmission is mated to the fuel-injected engine. Although, on the economy ground, the engine does not yield anything concrete, hence making it a heavy on pocket two-wheeler. The selector employed on the bike enables toggling between the three engine control maps provided on the bike. The bike gets dual disc brakes for retarding power along with Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers and anti-lock-braking system that adds further force to the braking action. Suspension duties are handled by inverted telescopic coil spring oil damped forks upfront and coil spring oil damped absorbers at rear. The bike is available in various colour choices like candy daring red/metallic mystic silver (A9Z), pearl bracing white, Metallic Mystic Silver (ARA), Metallic Thunder Gray and Glass Sparkle Black (AA3).
