Speaking about the launch of the 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa, Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited had said:
For 20 years, Suzuki Hayabusa has been one of the most loved sportsbike among the enthusiasts for almost two decades and has received an excellent response in India. It is our constant endeavour to offer great products, and we are pleased to launch the 2019 edition of Hayabusa in two new colour schemes appealing to a larger fan base and enthusiasts in India.
The Hayabusa is powered with 1340cc four-stroke, fuel injected, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that produces 194 bhp of maximum power and is claimed to deliver a broad wave of torque for effortless acceleration.
The fate of the peregrine falcon inspired motorcycle
Suzuki has pulled the plug on the Hayabusa nearly 20 years after the hyperbike made its debut, and sales will continue until stocks last. Thus, if you have an inclination towards the styling of the current generation model, now is the right time to bring home one.
Meanwhile, the next-gen Hayabusa is reportedly in the works, and it is expected to debut within two years. A glimpse of the new Hayabusa’s design was showcased via the Concept GSX back in 2015. The new model is expected to pack more power with a bigger engine that would take on the Kawasaki’s 1441cc ZX-14R (called ZZ-R1400 in certain markets).
Suzuki reportedly plans to introduce at least ten new models globally over the next three years, and the new Hayabusa will most definitely be one of them. Suzuki has also reportedly applied for new trademark rights for clothing and merchandise.
