After major leaks and speculations, Suzuki has finally taken the wraps off the new 2021 Hayabusa. Now in its third generation, this legendary Japanese motorcycle, named after the Peregrine Falcon, sees its first major update in 13 years. But this update might not be what enthusiasts were hoping for.
It gets the same inline four-cylinder liquid-cooled motor (seen on the previous model), but is Euro 5-compliant now. However, the new green engine comes at a price. Performance figures now stand at 190PS at 9,700rpm and 150Nm at 7,000rpm: 7PS and 5Nm less than that of its predecessor. It continues to use the same twin-spar aluminum chassis, but gets a new subframe. Suspension duties are handled by fully adjustable 43mm KYB forks, offering 120mm travel and KYB monoshock. This time around, dropping the anchor on the new ‘Busa are bigger, 320mm discs paired with top-of-the-line Brembo Stylema callipers up front and a Nissin calliper at the rear.
The highlight of the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is its comprehensive electronic package. Thanks to the 10-level traction control, 10-level wheelie control, three levels of engine brake control and launch control, and the new Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), the new ‘Busa appears armed to the teeth.
The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is priced at GBP 16,499, which roughly translates to Rs 16.45 lakh. However, given that it is likely to arrive in India as a CBU by July, we expect it to be priced around Rs 20 lakh to 22 lakh.
