Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) has launched the 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa at INR 13,87,623 (ex-showroom Delhi). The bike is available across all Suzuki Big Bike dealerships in the country.

The Hayabusa is one of the fastest superbikes in the market.

The 2018 iteration comes in two new colours- Pearl Mira Red/Pearl Glacier White, and Glass Sparkle Black. Suzuki will also exhibit the bike at the Suzuki Pavilion during the upcoming Auto Expo 2018. The Japanese brand imports the bike as CKD (Completely Knocked Down) Kits; and assembles them at the SMIPL factory in Manesar, Gurugram.

Apart from the new colours, there are no mechanical changes to the bike. The sweeping curves on the bodywork of the Suzuki Hayabusa are tempered with optimal aerodynamics to help the bike slice through the wind. The motorcycle gets an analogue-digital combo cluster. The sporty riding position isn’t too demanding, and the ergonomics are apt for easy mile-munching.

The powerplant pairs with a 6-speed transmission with Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS). The engine features three power mappings. It can be controlled via Suzuki Drive Mode Selector.
