New Suzuki Hayabusa India Launch Soon: The wait is over! Suzuki 2-Wheelers India has officially teased the next-gen Hayabusa GSX1300R on its social media channels hinting that the sportbike is all set to be launched in the Indian markets very soon. To jog your memory, the Japanese 2-wheeler brand revealed the 2021 Hayabusa globally back on 5th February this year. Here are the screenshots from the official teaser video released by Suzuki India:
In terms of pricing, the recent reports suggest that the motorcycle would be launched as a CKD model and the ex-showroom price tag is expected to hover around INR 17-18 lakhs. In comparison, the last-gen BS4 Suzuki Hayabusa was available in India with a price tag of INR 13.75 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Mechanically, Suzuki has equipped the next-gen Hayabusa with the same 1340cc, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, which has been updated to meet the Euro5 emission norms, which are equivalent to the BS6 norms. Thanks to stricter emission norms, the new model generates less power and torque at 190 HP and 150 Nm respectively. In comparison, the last-gen model was good for 200 HP and 155 Nm. The engine remains mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa is an all-new model in terms of looks and features. It is the most-advanced Hayabusa ever and comes with a long list of electronic features like Suzuki Intelligent Ride System, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, 6-Axis Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), Power Mode Selector, Anti-lift Control System, Bi-directional Quick Shift System, Engine Brake Control System, Motion Track Traction Control System, Launch Control System, Emergency Stop Signal, Slope Dependent Control System, Active Speed Limiter, Motion Track Brake System, Hill Hold Control System, and Cruise Control.
