The Hayabusa is, and always will be, the ultimate sports bike. Engineered to perform like a heavy-weight boxer, the Hayabusa is muscular yet surprisingly agile.
Ultimate Sport, In Timeless Styling
At the turn of the 20th century Suzuki surprised the world by introducing the Hayabusa. Over the last decade, the motorcycle has evolved while staying true to its concept – the pinnacle of high-performance motorcycles.
The S-DMS (Suzuki Drive Mode Selector) system is built into the ECM and allows the rider to use a button mounted on the handlebar switch to select one of three engine control maps. These regulate the fuel injection, secondary throttle valve and ignition systems. Allowing the rider to select a different map to suit personal preferences in various riding conditions, such as choosing one map for motorway cruising and another map for tighter roads.
BREMBO MONOBLOC CALIPERS
Lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together calipers, the Hayabusa's top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers deliver better feedback to the rider. The piston diameters were enlarged from 32-30mm to 32-32mm. Larger pistons help apply greater force to the brake disc, which results in increased initial bite and a more controlled feeling.
Antilock Brake System (ABS) unit features a lightweight, compact design. The ABS enhances brake performance by helping prevent, to a certain extent, wheel locking due to changes in road conditions or excessive braking, by matching stopping power to available traction.
This mechanism improves rear tyre grip and stability when approaching bends, by reducing the pressure on the clutch pack under hard deceleration. The system also compresses the clutch pack under hard acceleration to eliminate clutch slip without the use of stronger clutch springs.
Ram-air downdraft induction with Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle bodies. Each throttle body barrel has two butterfly valves, a primary valve controlled by the twist grip and a secondary valve controlled by the ECM based on engine rpm, gear selection and the position of the primary valve. The secondary butterfly valve opens and closes to maintain ideal intake air velocity, improving high combustion efficiency, thus resulting in a linear throttle response, increased low-to-mid range torque.
SLICE THROUGH THE WIND
Extensive wind tunnel testing perfectly merges motorcycle and rider to find the ultimate shape for high-speed riding to maximise the power of the legendary engine. Gives the Hayabusa its unique look, protects the rider from the wind and improves acceleration, stability and fuel efficiency.
