The Suzuki Hayabusa is a dream motorcycle of many in India and around the world. It is also quite popular in India. So much that Suzuki officially started assembling the legendary sports-tourer bike in India to bring down the prices. However, even after assembling the Suzuki Hayabusa in India, it comes with a price tag of Rs. 13.74 lakh, ex-showroom, which is not an achievable amount for a lot of such dreamers. But what if you get the bike as a gift from your dad? A long shot for many but not for this lucky chap from Gujarat whose dad gifted him a new Suzuki Hayabusa.
GT Films has put up the video that shows him announcing the arrival of the bike. The video also shows the unboxing of the bike and then attachment of the parts like ORVMs, visor and other such detachable parts. Gaurav Thakor, who is now the owner of the bike came with his whole family to take the delivery from the showroom. The Hayabusa is finished in the white-red shade and looks extremely good. The whole family, especially Gaurav looks quite happy on the video and he also cuts a cake to celebrate the occasion. He was later seen posing with the newly acquired motorcycle for pictures too. As all beloved vehicles get a name, even this Hayabusa has been named by Gaurav. It is christened as ‘Hency’ by the owner.
The Suzuki Hayabusa is a motorcycle for long distance journeys and is extremely comfortable to ride for long hours. The bike is powered by an inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 1,340cc engine that generates a maximum power of 200 Bhp at 9,500 rpm and a peak torque of 155 nm at 7,200 rpm. It gets a 6-speed manual transmission and can do an electronically limited top speed of 299 km/h. The Hayabusa weighs a mighty 268 kg and is extremely stable on the straight lines. The long-wheelbase of the bike makes the bike stay in a straight line but it can take some effort to turn the bike into the corners at high speeds. Gaurav earlier owned a Bajaj Pulsar 220F, which is one of India’s most popular bikes.
The Suzuki Hayabusa offers three different modes that can be used for various situations like city riding and track riding. Due to the larger displacement engine, the bike generates a lot of torque at lower rpm compared to the litre-class superbikes like Suzuki GSX-1000R and Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. It can do 0-100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds and hit 200 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. It takes around 25.4 seconds to reach its top speed. The Suzuki Hayabusa gets dual disc brakes at front and a single disc brake at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is standard with the bike.
