Suzuki has announced the return of the undisputed King of speed – the Hayabusa 2021.
New Generation Busa features an all new chassis, new subframe, new suspension settings, new brakes and yes a heavily redesigned engine. It retains the low, long and wide stance inherited from its predecessors. New Busa boasts sharper lines and tough modern looks.
All new Hayabusa is powered by the same 1,340cc engine tweaked to generate more power and torque in the low and mid-range RPM. It produces 190 PS @ 9,700 rpm and 159 Nm of torque @ 7,000 rpm. The new Hayabusa is the fastest off the mark compared to its predecessors mainly due to the flatter torque curve.
This increase in performance is attributed to the use of new lighter pistons, rigid and lighter conrods, new camshaft, new cam chain tensioner, revised crankshaft and crankcases, new gearshift stopper, gears with revised bearing widths, new slipper clutch assembly, and new magneto.
New Hayabusa is equipped with twin-spar aluminium frame uses extruded aluminium sections which lend the right amount of suppleness and strength, achieving a better overall balance.
Front and rear suspensions are fully adjustable and contributes to bike’s stability at speed as well as its ability to turn. New Busa is fitted with specially-designed Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres. Stopping power is provided by Brembo Stylema calipers.
At the front Hayabusa features new vertically stacked LED headlights, nestled between the new angular air intakes. New position lights flanking the scoops double up as integrated turn signals.
The new color TFT display is flanked by analog tachometer and speedometer. TFT screen displays vital information readouts.
New Hayabusa’s advanced electronics suite aimed at improving everything from performance to rider comfort, and safety. It features IMU-governed ABS and traction control, cruise control, launch control, bi-directional quickshifter, engine brake control, three power modes, plus three preset rider modes and three user-defined modes.
Riders have the option to choose from one of three power modes, with full-power mode one followed by a softer mode two that reduces initial power but still builds to the same peak power, while mode three has a reduced maximum power output. Hayabusa’s electronics suite features launch control system with three modes that allow riders to limit engine RPM to 4,000, 6,000, or 8,000 RPM before launching.
There are also 10 modes of Motion Track Traction Control uses the same technology as Suzuki’s world championship-winning MotoGP machine and GSX-R1000R. 10 modes of Anti-lift Control help prevent the front wheel from lifting during hard acceleration.
Hayabusa’s intelligent braking system is equipped with lean angle-sensitive ABS.
The new Hayabusa will be available in authorised Suzuki dealerships in March 2021.
