Poised and ready to fly
The sleek, aerodynamic silhouette is unmistakably that of the Hayabusa. But the modern look of its styling and luxurious attention to the finest details say it’s a whole lot more. True to its design concept, “The Refined Beast”, the new Hayabusa’s long, low stance screams of the power, performance, poise and keen perceptive abilities possessed by a bird of prey. With an upswept tail and mufflers lending to the aggressive stance of its mass-forward image, this Hayabusa appears to be poised and ready to take flight on an exciting ride. The new mufflers take on coloring unique to your riding style over time, adding a personal touch to your Hayabusa. Splashes of color and chrome accents contrast blacked-out panel sections to create a visual impression of the incredible performance potential waiting to be tapped. Even the new English and Japanese logos speak of speed. The Hayabusa. It’s a true tour de force.
Aerodynamic performance is critically important on a motorcycle capable of reaching top speeds nearing 300km/h. Extensive wind tunnel testing, full use of the latest CAE tools and years of experience all contribute to achieving refined styling by which the rider and bike become one wind-cutting beast. The Hayabusa features one of the best drag coefficients found on any street legal motorcycle, while also achieving excellent CdA and lift values to maximize top speed potential and stability at top speed. By any measure, ultimate performance is what the Hayabusa is all about.
