Remember we told you last week that the new generation Suzuki Hayabusa will be launched in India this month? Yeah, so as we inch closer to the day, the two-wheeler manufacturer has now listed the upcoming Suzuki bike in India on its official website here to keep the buzz going. It must be noted that the company still hasn't shared the Suzuki Hayabusa's India launch date -- it has merely said it will happen some time this month. Anyway, as we wait for the day and more details about the bike, what do you say we take a quick look at everything we know about the upcoming bike in India so far? Here goes.
Since the 2021 Hayabusa has already been revealed globally, we know it will not feature any groundbreaking design changes, but they will not be entirely unnoticable either. The new Suzuki Hayabusa will come equipped with a new LED headlamp, boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, different air vents, redesigned air diffusers, and new body graphics. The upcoming Suzuki bike in India will also be more aerodynamic than before.
As for features, Suzuki will equip the bike with a part-digital part-analogue panel with a TFT display and its Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) comprising features such as a six-axis inertial measurement unit, cruise control with active speed limiter, bi-directional quickshifter, traction control system, anti-lift control, launch control, engine brake control, hill-hold control, cornering ABS, and six riding modes, three of which are user-defined.
The third-generation Suzuki Hayabusa will be propelled by a 1,304 cc, liquid-cooled engine that generates a maximum power output of 187 bhp and 150 Nm of peak torque. The new bike's torque output is 10 bhp less than that of its predecessor. Moving on, the unit is paired to a six-speed gearbox with bi-directional quickshifter for clutchless gearshifts. The bike also gets ride-by-wire for improved throttle response.
