Suzuki Hayabusa vs Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R in a ‘superbike tug-of-war’

We have seen a lot of videos where people have used cars to do tug-of-war. Yes, there are a few videos that show mass-segment motorcycles like Yamaha YZF-R15 and Bajaj Pulsar. Well, here is a video that shows a tug-of-war between a Suzuki Hayabusa and a Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R. While these motorcycles are from different segment altogether, the video shows which one is more powerful depending purely on its power and torque.

The video is made by HSB and is uploaded on the official YouTube channel. The video shows the Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R and the Suzuki Hayabusa fighting it out against each other inside a park on a grass surface. The video shows both the motorcycles tied to each other using ropes and both of them trying to pull the other one to win the game. There are a few moments when the Hayabusa pulls the Ninja ZX10R without any problem while on the other times, the Ninja pulls the Hayabusa. Both the bikes kick some dirt with wheelspin too.

In the end, the video says that the Hayabusa has won the battle but we think that both Hayabusa and the Ninja ZX10R kept their respective ground well and both did a great job. There is no clear winner in this tug-of-war according to us. However, if you feel otherwise, do feel free to comment and let us know. Also, the exhaust sound in this video is not from either of these two bikes. The exhaust sound seems to be from a different video and does not match with the visuals in this video.

Suzuki Hayabusa vs Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R in a ‘superbike tug-of-war’

The Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the most popular motorcycles in India. It gained popularity after a Bollywood movie – Dhoom and is easily recognised by most people on the road. It is a sport-touring motorcycle and not a supersport bike like the Kawasaki ZX10R. The Hayabusa is made for long-distance tours and riding and it is designed to be extremely stable on straight roads. One can literally ride the Hayabusa for hundreds of kilometres without getting a sign of tiredness because the bike is designed like that. Soon, Suzuki will launch the all-new Hayabusa in the Indian market.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R, on the other hand, is a supersport bike that is built for the track. It is a proper track tool and offers some great handling and agility. The ZX10R is very different when it comes to the seating position and straight-line stability compared to the Hayabusa. Both motorcycles serve different purposes entirely.

The Suzuki Hayabusa is powered by a  1,300cc, inline-four-cylinder four-stroke engine. This fuel-injected motor puts out  197 Bhp of peak power at 9,500 rpm and 155 Nm of peak torque at 7,200 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and fuel efficiency is rated at 11 km/l. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R gets a smaller 998cc, in-line four-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 207 Bhp and peak torque of 115 Nm.
