The legendary Peregrine Falcon needs no introduction. Suzuki has blessed this motorcycle with a plethora of modern technologies to make this motorcycle one of the fastest in its segment. The 1340 cc in-line four engine makes 197 PS of power and 155 Nm of torque. 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.
The Hayabusa incorporates a fully adjustable 43 mm KYB upside down front fork with Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating. The rear gets a link-type monoshock. For anchorage, the bike uses 310 mm dual front discs with Brembo Monobloc callipers. The rear uses a 260 mm disc with a single piston calliper. Bridgestone BT-015 tyres wrap the alloy wheels and are specially developed for this motorcycle. The bike comes with a massive 21-litre fuel tank and tips the scales at 266 kg, kerb.
The Suzuki GSX-R1000R is the more hard-core version of the GSX-R1000.

Setting apart from its normal variant, the R1000R is equipped with a bi-directional quickshifter, racing launch control, LED position lights, lightweight battery and a unique black LCD instrument panel display. The cycle parts are uprated as well, with fully adjustable Showa BFF (Balance Free Front) fork and Showa BFRC Lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion Lite) rear monoshock.
