Suzuki engineered the Hayabusa to perform like a heavyweight boxer—muscular yet surprisingly agile. While riders rarely need to call on its full punch off the line, the overabundant power and fleet-footed performance inspire confidence in everyday riding. That restrained yet refined energy is the presence that turns heads when a Hayabusa and rider pass. The Hayabusa’s high-quality finish and attention to detail betray unequalled pride of craftsmanship that will become your pride of ownership. The bold design also gives it a unique aura and formidable presence not found in other bikes.
1340cm3 in-line four-cylinder fuel-injected, liquid-cooled DOHC engine.
The Hayabusa’s muscular engine delivers a broader wave of torque for effortless acceleration. Its advanced design boasts liquid-cooling, ram-air downdraft induction with Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle bodies, fuel injection employing twin injectors controlled by a 32-bit ECU, and hollow double overhead cams operating four valves per cylinder.
The Hayabusa design perfectly merges motorcycle and rider. Carefully sculpted bodywork tames the wind to maximize the more-than-ample power of the Hayabusa engine. Extensive wind tunnel testing with a rider onboard helped to find the ultimate shape for high-speed riding. The radical aerodynamic styling and smoother bodywork not only gives the Hayabusa its unique look but also protects the rider from the wind and improves fuel efficiency.
Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers
310mm (12.2 inch) dual-floating-discs mated with the radial-mount Brembo monobloc front brake calipers. The calipers are lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together callipers, deliver better feedback, and are ﬁtted with larger pistons that increase initial bite for greater controllability. The hollow-type mounting bolts further reduce weight.
Lightweight, high-performance ABS
The standard equipment 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.
*Please note that ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed suﬃciently before approaching curves and corners.

A Performance Legend
It is a sporting motorcycle that has become a performance legend in its own time. An aerodynamic machine inspired by and named for a Japanese peregrine falcon known for cutting through the wind with incredible ease. A machine so unique when it was introduced that it required its own new classification: Ultimate Sport.
