The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is powered by a Euro 5/BS6-compliant 1,340cc engine, which belts out 190 HP and 150 Nm
Suzuki Motorcycle India has today launched the 2021 Hayabusa. The motorcycle arrives via the CKD import route and it led to an aggressive price of Rs. 16.40 lakh (ex-showroom). The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is powered by an updated 1,340cc, inline-4 engine, which features lighter pistons and connecting rods, updated cams, revised crankshaft, etc.
The result is a peak power of 190 HP and a maximum torque of 150 Nm. Although the power output is slightly lower on the new model compared to the older one, Suzuki claims that the overall performance has improved.
The transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed gearbox, and there are plenty of electronic aids available on the motorcycle. It gets a 6-axis IMU-based traction control system, along with wheelie control, engine brake control, hill-hold control, cruise control, launch control, and three power modes. The Hayabusa also gets a two-way quickshifter and cornering ABS, which should make it relatively easy to ride.
Unlike most modern superbikes, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa gets an analogue instrument cluster, with a small digital TFT readout in the centre. While the instrument cluster setup seems old-school, it is easy to read and displays all the necessary information appropriately. For a modern touch to the design, the bike also gets LED headlamps (with LED DRLs) and LED taillights.
The chassis remains mostly unchanged over the previous model, with the same twin-spar aluminium frame carried over to the new model. The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has a 1,480mm long wheelbase, which is identical to the previous model, although the seat height and ground clearance are a little lower than before, at 800mm and 120mm, respectively.
The local assembly of the new generation Suzuki Hayabusa will help the motorcycle is getting plenty of attention amongst young customers, just as its predecessor and don’t be surprised if it raises to the top of the superbike sales charts in a short span of time.
