2017 Suzuki Hayabusa

2017 Hayabusa

The Suzuki Hayabusa is quite simply the Ultimate Sportbike. Twist the throttle and it responds with awesome acceleration and crisp throttle response in every gear with an unbelievable top-end charge. Thanks to a lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminum frame and state-of-the-art suspension, that performance is matched by equally impressive handling, providing exceptional control in tight corners, reassuring stability in sweeping turns and a smooth ride on the highway. The sleek, aerodynamic body work functions as it appears so the Hayabusa slips through the wind like a Peregrine Falcon.


  • Powerful 1340 cc in-line 4-cylinder fuel-injected, liquid-cooled DOHC engine built to deliver a broad wave of torque for effortless acceleration.
  • Forged three-ring aluminum-alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength, while PVD-coated rings reduce friction and improve cylinder sealing.
  • The chrome nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) piston ring coating is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction while improving sealing to the cylinder.
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) cylinder plating improves heat dissipation, durability and ring seal.
  • U-shaped cutouts in the cylinder-bore sides allow air pressure created by descending pistons to escape to adjacent cylinders to reduce internal pumping pressure and mechanical power losses.
  • Lightweight titanium valves allow use of light valve springs and high lift while maintaining accurate valve control.
  • Iridium spark plugs produce more complete combustion and last longer than conventional plugs.
  • Curved radiator with a compact, dense-core design and two ECM-controlled electric fans keep the engine temperature stable.
  • Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) serves as back-torque-limiting system for smooth downshifts and also contributes to a light clutch pull.
  • Close ratio, constant-mesh 6-speed transmission uses dedicated oil spray to the 4th, 5th and 6th gears to reduce friction, wear and mechanical noise during high-speed operation.
  • Suzuki’s advanced fuel-injection system with tapered, 44 mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) induction improves combustion efficiency and smooth’s throttle response.
  • 2 – 12-hole fine-spray injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency while reducing fuel consumption.
  • Idle Speed Control (ISC) system improves cold starting and helps maintain stable engine idle under a variety of conditions.
  • Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system ignites unburned hydrocarbons (HC) and reduces carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
  • Large-volume catalyzer in the twin-silencer exhaust permits high flow while further reducing HC, CO and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
  • Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets riders select engine power output to match preferences or riding conditions.
