The Suzuki Hayabusa is no longer available in most markets. Rumours of a newer and bigger model have been rife for quite some time now. Bennetts UK has shared a new patent image of the next-generation Suzuki Hayabusa. The next-gen of the sports-tourer is expected to be launched in 2021.
New patent images of the next-gen Suzuki Hayabusa reveal its gear position indicator. The all-new Suzuki Hayabusa will use the same frame as the previous model. The powerplant is also expected to be based on the same 1,340 cc four-pot mill. However, it will have revised cylinders. Several media reports also that the displacement will be increased. Two gearbox options are expected, manual and semi-automatic. There will be a plethora of modern-day electronic riding aides.
The present version of the Suzuki Hayabusa retailed in India cannot be sold in Europe because it does not meet the stricter Euro 4 norms. However, the bike continues to be retailed in the United States. It retails in India at INR 13,74,364 (ex-showroom, Delhi). That makes it one of the most affordable near-200 PS output machines on sale in the country.

Output figures of the present generation Suzuki Hayabusa stand at 199 PS of power and 155 Nm of torque. The bike tips the scales at 268 kg. A large, 21-litre fuel tank makes the Hayabusa a perfect tourer. Colour options in India include Metallic Oort Grey and Glass Sparkle Black.
Besides that, Suzuki India’s big-bike portfolio includes Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT, Suzuki GSX-S750 and flagship Suzuki GSX-R1000R. The Japanese manufacturer recently launched the street-naked Suzuki Gixxer 250 in India at INR 1,59,800 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
