The rendered next-generation Suzuki Hayabusa draws its styling cues from the Suzuki concept GSX showcased back in 2015
Suzuki has recently discontinued the legendary Hayabusa after almost 20 years. While we all thought that Suzuki will discontinue the Hayabusa nameplate completely from their lineup but according to the recent reports the Japanese two-wheeler brand is possibly working on the new generation model which will likely arrive in the year 2022.
Recently a Japanese magazine has rendered the upcoming Superbike and as per the rendered image, the new Hayabusa will likely be a revolution of the second generation model. The rendered Hayabusa takes its styling inspiration from the Concept GSX which was showcased back in 2015.
Besides the rendered image the same Japanese magazine has also revealed a few leaked patents of the new model. The leaked patents reveal that the next generation model will feature new weight saving measures which will result in enhancing the power to weight ratio of the motorcycle.
Like we already mentioned before the next-gen Hayabusa will get a sharper styling and a redesigned single pod headlamp cluster which will most probably feature LED unit. The overall bodywork too has been revised. While the exhaust also have been re-designed as well which looks slimmer and also sportier than the ones found in the current generation motorcycle.
The next generation Suzuki Hayabusa will be aimed once again to win back the fastest production motorcycle tag from the Kawasaki ZX-14R. For all your information the second generation Hayabusa is powered by a 1,340cc engine which produces about 194 bhp of peak power and 155 Nm of peak torque.
While its biggest rival ZX-14R produces 197 Bhp and 158 Nm of peak torque from its 1,441cc motor. Besides the updated engine expect the next generation Hayabusa to also get equipped with an updated electronic package which will include traction control, different ride modes and a six-axis IMU.
For those of you who are not aware Suzuki has recently discontinued the second generation Hayabusa from the markets of Europe while the production of the motorcycle has also stopped in Japan as well. Unfortunately, the motorcycle has not received the Euro-IV upgrade and thus does not comply with the part of EU Regulation 168/2013. However, the manufacturer was given a grace period of two years to sell the remaining stock which ended on December 31st, 2018.
