2020 Suzuki Hayabusa was recently seen in an impressive render by Young Machine. The image looks really impressive as the new Hayabusa looks more streamlined in comparison to the present version. If this comes out close to the real version, Suzuki has a clear winner on its side. The front fascia seen here comes with sharper design and carries equipment like LED stripe going through the middle of the air scoops and headlight. They have kept the headlight in the same design language while its internal section seems to be divided into two blocks.
The side profile would be even sharpened for the 2020 look, losing all those curves that were seen from every angle on the present generation motorcycle. It gets itself a new exhaust and flaunts its front USD forks as well as brake callipers with proud. Suzuki will retain the massive dimensions of the motorcycle as it improves its road presence. It will now look more like the litre class GSX-R1000. The rear end is seen with a familiar seat cowl while the body seems thin in the centre section. The exhaust design is all new, definitely helping them reduce some weight and follow the now applicable Euro-5 norms. Not just that, the new Hayabusa could be a Euro-6 compliant motorcycle.
Suzuki will shed some weight from the bulky racer, helping it claim a better spot against the closest rival, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. Suzuki even recently patented turbocharged hybrid technology for litre class motorcycles, hinting at an even powerful comeback for the new Hayabusa. The current generation is powered by 1340 cc, 4-cylinder engine producing 200 HP at 9500 rpm and 155 Nm at 7200 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and weighs quite high at 266 kg. It currently claims a top speed of 312 kph with the removal of the speed limiter.
Suzuki recently launched 2 new shades for the current-gen Hayabusa in India, it is presently available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 13.74 lakh. The 2020 model is expected to be revealed at the EICMA in November 2019.
