The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa Has Reached Your Local Showroom


Here’s how the India-spec Hayabusa differs from the international model

After being launched at a competitive price, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has started reaching dealerships and deliveries have also commenced in several states.  

However, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa that has reached showrooms differs from the international model in certain aspects. 

 

Firstly, we get all three colours  -- Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Burnt Gold, Metallic Matte Sword Silver/Candy Daring Red, and Pearl Brilliant White/Metallic Mat Stellar Blue -- here, unlike many international markets that get only two options.  

Secondly, instead of LED DRLs with integrated indicators up front, the Indian model gets only LED indicators as Indian motorcycle norms don’t permit integrated indicators. Everything else has remained as it is.

The 2021 Hayabusa gets a major design overhaul for 2021 but retains its iconic persona. Its new fairings, sharper nose, beefier fairings (to aid with wind deflection), and an all-new tail section, all make it look more premium without losing out on its charm or aerodynamics. 

Its modern aesthetics are complemented by an extensive set of features. You get cruise control, new ride modes, a bi-directional quickshifter, and hill hold control for effortless touring and road use. 

 

Meanwhile, if you plan to hit the track, the 2021 Hayabusa gets IMU-based electronics, including engine braking control, a lean angle sensor, cornering ABS, wheelie control, and launch control.

Trusty Bridgestone Battlax S22 tyres wrapped around 17-inch alloys come standard on the bike.

At the heart of the matter lies the same 1,341cc inline-four motor, putting out 190PS and 150Nm. It has, however, been tweaked to meet the stricter BS6 emission norms. Suzuki claims the bike offers a more linear yet punchy power delivery. 

The motor is housed in the same twin-spar aluminium chassis, sprung on a Showa USD fork and monoshock, both adjustable. 

One of the biggest changes for 2021 is the braking setup that now employs top-of-the-line Brembo Stylema calipers up front. 

The 2021 Hayabusa tips the scale at 264kg, 2kg less than before, which is pretty hefty but it shouldn’t be too big a deal given the Busa’s low 800mm seat height.

Lastly, at Rs 16.40 lakh (ex-showroom), the Hayabusa is nothing short of a steal deal in the market. With the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R, the ‘Busa has no natural rival but for the money, there are some interesting options in our market. Check them out here.
