Would You Believe Us If We Tell You This Hayabusa Was A Hero Xtreme?


The modified motorcycle has received plenty of cosmetic changes but it still retains the same 149cc engine that powers the stock Hero Xtreme

GM Customs of Delhi converted a stock Hero Xtreme into a Suzuki Hayabusa and the attention to detail given to the Hayabusa replica is worth praising. However, the changes that you see here are only cosmetic and there are no changes made to the engine of this motorcycle at all.

Talking about the changes, the modified motorcycle has been fitted with dual disc brakes at the front but we are not exactly sure whether the second disc brake actually works or not. It could be installed to increase the visual appeal of the motorcycle.

The front fairing of the motorcycle hides the front suspension setup so it is hard to tell whether GM Customs have used a premium upside-down telescopic forks or just the conventional telescopic setup. Like we already mentioned above the attention to detail on this Hayabusa replica is worth praising and if you take a closer look you will notice that the motorcycle even features the Hayabusa styled instrument console and clip-on handlebars as well.

The replica motorcycle also gets the identical Hayabusa fuel tank, split seat, rear profile and even a wider front and rear tyres. Even the front headlamp and taillamp too look identical to the original Japanese motorcycle. Besides all that GM Customs have definitely made some changes to the rear subframe of the Xtreme as well because the stock Hero Xtreme gets twin shock absorbers at the rear while the Hayabusa replica that you see in these images gets rear monoshock absorbers.

For your information, the stock Hayabusa is powered by a 1340cc, four-cylinder engine. The engine paired with a six-speed gearbox produces about 197 BHP of peak power at 9500 rpm and 155 Nm of peak torque at 7200 rpm. The Hero Xtreme on the other hand, which is also the donor motorcycle here is powered by a 149cc, single cylinder engine.


This unit paired with a 5-speed gearbox produces about 15.6 BHP of peak power at 8500 rpm and 13.5 Nm of peak torque at 7000 rpm. Hopefully, the 149 cc engine will be able to do justice to the Hayabusa replica with all the additional weight on board.
