The new-gen Hayabusa, reborn falcon, teasers are being circulated by Suzuki Motorcycle India on its social media platforms. Does this suggest the arrival of the re-born sooner than expected !.
The Auto Major had revealed the all-new Hayabusa motorcycle a few weeks back.
Now its Indian arm, Suzuki Motorcycle India, has posted teasers on the new-gen Busa on its social media platforms. A hint that the arrival of the reborn falcon is expected sooner than expected.
However, the latest announcement isn't a huge surprise, as the Hayabusa is one of the hottest-selling superbikes in India. The fact that it is currently not on sale was a big dampener for the customers and the company as well, in the premium bike segment.
The new Hayabusa comes with a host of changes. For starters, the motorcycle now gets a sharper-looking exterior design loaded with modern features and fresh two-tone body colors.
An all-LED headlight and turn signals comprising built-in position lights are now integral to the bike. These lights have been placed at the very edge of the motorcycle's front end, as in its predecessor.
The engine has been updated to meet Euro 5/ BS 6-compliance.
It is the familiar 1,340 cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that can deliver 187.7 bhp of power at 9,700 rpm and a peak torque of 150 Nm at 7,000rpm. The transmission option is the same 6-speed unit.
The powertrain has been upgraded to get a ride-by-wire electronic throttle system and a revised intake and exhaust mechanism. This upgrade, as per company sources, will give enhanced output and torque even in the low and mid-range of the motorcycle.
The curb weight of the bike is 264kg (kerb) and fuel efficiency has been measured at 14.9kmpl.
The new electronic and feature additions on the bike include :
new Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) with SDMS-α.
new riding modes: traction control, bi-directional quick shift system, power mode selector, engine brake control, and anti-lift control system.
safety kit now also includes the 'Active Speed Limiter' feature. This feature allows the rider to set a speed limit on the bike when required.
Expect the new Hayabusa to be launched in India ... very soon.
