Japanese two-wheeler maker Suzuki has finally taken the wraps off the new 2021 Hayabusa. The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa was one of the most anticipated superbikes and was expected to feature radical changes to the mechanicals. But it is safe to say that the new Hayabusa has not met the expectations of the ‘Busa’ fans, who were expecting a bigger engine and other upgrades.
Now, coming to the 2021 Hayabusa, the overall silhouette of the motorcycle remains the same, and it features the original ‘Busa’ design. The new avatar of the Hayabusa features a dual-tone colour scheme. Other upgrades include LED headlight and LED DRLs on the outer edges of the front air intakes, which also doubles up as turn indicators. The motorcycle also gets LED lights at the rear.
Coming to the heart of the matter, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa draws power from a 1,340cc four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which pumps out 187.7bhp of power and 150Nm of torque. The engine has been revamped with new internal components such as lighter pistons, new fuel injectors, new connecting rods and much more. The 2021 Hayabusa features the same twin-spar aluminium frame.
Talking about the features and electronic riding aids, the 2021 avatar of the Hayabusa gets a new TFT display between the analogue instrument cluster. Other riding aids include cornering ABS, traction control, anti-wheelie control, launch control, hill-hold assist, engine brake control and five riding modes. The motorcycle also gets cruise control and Active Speed limiter, which allows the rider to set a speed limit.
Suzuki will launch the new Hayabusa in the European markets by the end of February, and later the superbike will go on sale in North America and Japan. Expect the 2021 Hayabusa to hit the Indian shores in the second half of 2021.
