The beauty of fine instrumentation

Riders love the familiar layout and outstanding functionality of the Hayabusa’s instrument cluster. Now it benefits from a number of carefully considered touches that make its functional brilliance shine even brighter. Bigger, bolder numbering on the analog tach and speedometer improve readability, as do the backlit raised scale markings around the periphery. One standout item is the new TFT LCD panel mounted in the center. In addition to the current SDMS-α systems settings, it features an Active Data display that enhances the ride by offering a bird’s-eye view of the bike’s current operating status. This includes real-time display of the lean angle (with peak-hold function), front and rear brake pressure, rate of acceleration, and throttle position.

Lighting your way in style

The Hayabusa’s vertically stacked low beam and projector-type high beam headlights adopt LEDs. The distinctive signature of their lighting pattern provides clear illumination at night and makes the Hayabusa highly visible to pedestrians and other traffic. Position lights with integrated turn signals*, a first on a Suzuki motorcycle, neatly flank the outer edges of the large SRAD air intakes. In the rear, a bold new LED taillight and rear turn signal design creates a single wide, sharp accent running horizontally across the bottom of the tail section.
