Suzuki launched the new generation of Hayabusa in our country recently. The Hayabusa has a cult following. It is one of the most iconic motorcycles in India and everyone recognizes one when they see it. Due to this, everyone was excited when Suzuki announced that the new Hayabusa will be coming to the Indian market. The first batch of the Hayabusa was sold out instantly. Well, here is a video in which we can see India’s first woman owner of the 2021 Hayabusa.

Suzuki brought 101 units of Hayabusa for India. Despite COVID-19, all of them were sold in just two days. Needless to say that Hayabusa still has a lot of hype around it and people are still big follower of the motorcycle. The first batch of the Hayabusa was priced at Rs. 16.4 lakhs ex-showroom and the owners also got a complimentary seat cowl for the motorcycle.
Suzuki reworked the design of the Hayabusa without changing its iconic looks. So, it still unmistakably looks like a Hayabusa which is a good thing. All the lighting elements on the 2021 model have been upgraded to LED units. While the front headlamp looks similar to the previous generation, the rear tail lamp is an entirely new unit. The exhaust pipes are also now sleeker and the riding triangle of the motorcycle has also been improved.
The handlebar has been slightly moved towards the rider so it is now more accessible and the manufacturer also gave it a taller windscreen which should provide better wind protection when the rider is travelling over highways. Also, the motorcycle has undergone extreme wind tunnel testing just like its previous generations. The manufacturer also retuned the suspension. So, the new version should offer better handling and riding quality. Another thing, Suzuki worked upon are the brakes. They improved the brakes so that it has better stopping power than the previous generations.
Suzuki says that the 2021 version is the quickest Hayabusa. To achieve this, they worked on the torque delivery and made many internal changes to the engine. The engine now has new connecting rods, revised crankshaft, lighter pistons, updated cam and new fuel injectors. The 2021 version makes 187 bhp of max power and 150 Nm of peak torque. Interestingly the previous generation Hayabusa developed 194 bhp of max power and 154 Nm of peak torque. But still, the new Hayabusa is quicker than the previous one. They all did this while making the engine BS6 compliant and they shed off 2 kgs. The fuel efficiency figure of the motorcycle has dropped from 21.5 kmpl to 18.06 kmpl.
The manufacturer is also now offering a lot of modern features such as cruise control, a new TFT dash, eight driving modes, Suzuki Easy Stary System, Cornering ABS, Traction Control, Launch Control, Bi-directional quickshifter, hill hold control and much more.
