New Delhi: Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. (SMIPL), the two-wheeler subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan on Monday launched the third generation model of its flagship Sport Bike, the All New Hayabusa. Perfectly poised to carry the riders boldly into the future, the All New Hayabusa has been launched with a full model change for the first time in 13 years.
Under the product concept “Ultimate Sport”, inherited from the very first generation, the All New Hayabusa has further evolved the unique styling design with outstanding aerodynamic performance and superior riding performance. Various mode selections are offered for each electronic control system to better fit varying riding scenes from city riding to touring, racetracks, and better serve for riders’ preferences and skill levels.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Koichiro Hirao, Managing Director, SMIPL said, “Suzuki Hayabusa has been the most preferred choice amongst Sport bike enthusiasts around the world for over two decades now in the class it created. The new-generation Hayabusa was developed not only to achieve an even higher overall balance of ultimate performance and comply with the BS6 emissions standards, but also to capture the hearts of both devoted followers and all who lay eyes on the stunning beauty and sharper, tauter form of its bold new design.”
Considering the riders are quite familiar with the original silhouette and layout of instrument console of previous generations’ Hayabusa sport bikes, Suzuki has retained both in the new generation model. However, the instrumental console containing large analogue meter and tachometer will now be equipped with number of new touches that will make its functions shine even brighter.
The newly-installed Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) features SDMS-?, which offers a choice between three factory presets, (A: Active, B: Basic, and C: Comfort), as well as three user-defined settings (U1, U2, U3). Each one of these selects the mode settings as a group for the Power Mode Selector, Motion Track Traction Control, Anti-lift Control, Engine Brake Control and Bi-directional Quick Shift systems. The rider uses switches on the left handlebar to change modes and settings, and the current settings are displayed on the TFT LCD panel located in the center of the instrument cluster, between the Hayabusa’s large analog speedometer and tachometer.
S.I.R.S. also comes with Active Speed Limiter, a first in the motorcycle industry that allows the rider to set a speed limit the bike should not exceed, eliminating worries about speeding or driving faster than intended. The system can be temporarily overridden with one quick twist of the throttle, making it easy to accelerate beyond the set limit to pass other vehicles. It can be deactivated completely at the press of a button after releasing the throttle.
The all New Hayabusa is powered with 1340cm3 four stroke fuel injected liquid-cooled DOHC, in-line four engine to deliver 140kW (190PS)/9,700rpm power and 150N-m/7,000rpm torque. Additionally, Intelligence embodied in the electronic control systems enhance and advance the riding experience.
The BS6 Compliant All New Hayabusa shall be dispatched in the middle of May 2021, retails at INR 1,640,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) and will be available in three color variants, 1) Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Burnt Gold, 2) Metallic Mat Sword Silver/Candy Daring Red and 3) Pearl Brilliant White/Metallic Mat Stellar Blue.
