Suzuki debuted the Hayabusa in 1999, catapulting the unassuming Japanese marque into a world of superbike notoriety, and now the all-new 2021 version has been unveiled.

The ‘Busa is instantly recognizable thanks to its low, long, and wide body, despite the new model featuring over 550 new parts that come together to create a “wind-cheating bodywork” frame and a better riding experience. For example, lines are sharper and at the front, you’ll find a new set of vertically-stacked LED headlights situated in the new angular air intakes, while other signature elements such as the dash clocks have been modernized with a color TFT screen.

Furthermore, the 1340cc inline-four-cylinder engine has been completely revised to make it quicker off the line than its predecessors. While it may only hit 186 MPH thanks to an electronic limit, new pistons, conrods, crankshaft, and camshaft enhancements — coupled with tech such as ABS and traction control, cruise control, launch control, a bi-directional quickshifter, engine brake control, and three power modes — makes for improved torque delivery in low-to-mid revs, therefore making it quicker from the word go.

In short, the ‘Busa delivers 187 HP and 150 Nm of torque, which is more than enough to shift the superbike from 0-62 MPH in around 2 seconds, much like its predecessors.

Take a look at the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa in the gallery above, and find out more information on Suzuki’s website. The suggested retail price of the new motorbike is £16,499 GBP (approx. $22,499 USD).
