Suzuki has announced the launch of the all-new Hayabusa in India on April 26. We can expect the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa to be imported via the CKD route, with a slightly higher price.
The new-gen bike is packed with multiple updates. Hayabusa gets a redesigned, low-weighing, Euro-5-compliant exhaust resulting in the reduced kerb weight of the bike by 2kgs, which makes it a total of 264kg.
To talk about similarity, the new Suzuki Hayabusa carries the same twin-spar aluminium frame found in the old model. Besides, it also has a similar dimension, alongside an identical 1,480mm wheelbase.
On the engine side, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa continues with the 1,340cc, four-cylinder unit that has undergone heavy rework this time. Some changes include new connecting rods, fuel injectors, and lighter pistons, among others.
However, the new bike gets a lower power of 190hp than the old version, capable of producing 197hp. Similarly, the peak torque of 150Nm is lesser than the predecessor.
The new Suzuki Hayabusa runs on Bridgestone’s Battlax S22 tyres and Brembo’s Stylema calipers upfront. The bike also receives some major updates in terms of technology utilized. Now, it gets 10 levels of anti-wheelie control, 10 levels of traction control, 6-axis IMU, 3 power modes, 3 levels of engine brake control, cruise control, launch control, hill hold control as well as cornering ABS.
On the outside, the all-new Hayabusa comes with a sleeker bodywork. It can be seen carrying a large analogue dashboard, new TFT display, LED headlight, and an inwardly moved handlebar.
We can expect the new Hayabusa to receive a price tag of Rs. 17-18 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. There won’t be any direct rivals to the bike when it goes on sale.
