Japanese automaker Suzuki launched the much awaited 2021 version of their superbike Hayabusa earlier this year. Hayabusa is a very popular and recognisable model in the Indian market. Suzuki officially launched the all-new generation Hayabusa in the Indian market back in April and the response was overwhelming. Suzuki had imported 101 units of Hayabusa in the market and every unit was sold out in just couple of days. Mind that, Suzuki Hayabusa is a superbike and is not cheap by any means. It is priced at Rs 16.40 lakh, ex-showroom. Here we have a video where a vlogger takes India’s first 2021 Hayabusa out for a spin.
The video has been uploaded by Wild Wing Rider on their YouTube channel. The video starts with vlogger talking about the all-new Suzuki Hayabusa. The superbike seen in the video belongs to his friend and is probably the first one to be delivered. The vlogger is also one of the first Indian YouTuber to take it for a spin.
The vlogger is very excited about the bike as he owns an older generation Hayabusa. He said that, although they have come to Rajasthan, Jaipur for collecting the bike, they won’t be riding it to Delhi as Suzuki has not officially started delivering it to the customers. The vlogger gears up and starts riding the all-new Hayabusa which has only clocked 5 kms on odometer.
Vlogger straightaway says that the handling of the bike is similar to the older version that he owns. The engine felt very smooth and the power delivery has also changed. He says that, the torque is now available at lower RPMs which was missing in the older version. The bike also feels quick to ride. Vlogger does not push it to the limits as it was a brand new motorcycle and there was traffic.
After riding it for some distance, he stops and starts giving a quick walkaround. The 2021 Hayabusa looks a lot more streamlined and sharp in terms of design. The older versions came with a rounded design. The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has a revised instrument cluster, all LED lights (headlamp, indicators and tail lamps). The one seen in the video is a black Hayabusa and it comes with chrome garnish and golden accents at places.
Vlogger mentions that, when he first saw the images of the Hayabusa online, he was not impressed with the rear design but, now when he is seeing it in flesh, he liked it and the rear looks massive too. He also liked the quickshifter on the new motorcycle and is seen using it in the video. As the bike was running on stock exhaust, it had a decent sounding exhaust which was not loud.
Suzuki Hayabusa is still powered by a 1,340-cc, in-line four cylinder, liquid cooled engine. It is almost 2 kgs lighter than older version and they have made several changes to engine of the motorcycle to make it quicker. In comparison to the older versions, the new Hayabusa, the new one generates 7 Bhp and 4 Nm less power and torque. It has lost 2 kgs of weight and it now generates 187 Bhp and 150 Nm of peak torque.
