2018 Suzuki 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.

Additional Features

  • Stylized Suzuki “S” 3-D emblems on the fuel tank and the fork upper bracket denotes the quality, sophistication and performance legacy of the brand.
  • Quality details abound with passenger foot-peg brackets, muffler hangers, rider foot-peg and control brackets that evoking the fine art of feudal Japanese armor, Yoroi-Kabuto.

Chassis Features

  • Twin-spar aluminum-alloy frame built with castings and extrusions to produce a balance or lightweight and strength.
  • Rear sub-frame made of rectangular steel tubing for ample weight carrying capacity.
  • KYB inverted cartridge forks feature Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the 43mm stanchion tubes to reduce friction and improve reaction to small road surface irregularities.
  • The front forks and the single rear shock absorber both have fully adjustable spring preload, compression and rebound damping.
  • Standard-equipment steering damper quells unwanted vibration and steering forces.
  • Three-spoke cast-aluminum-alloy wheels shod with 120/70ZR17M/C (58W) front and 190/50ZR17M/C (73W) rear radial tires.
  • Dual 310 mm (12.2 in.) floating-brake rotors are mated with radial-mount Brembo monobloc front brake calipers. The calipers are lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together calipers, deliver better feedback, and are ?tted with larger pistons that increase initial bite for greater controllability. The hollow-type mounting bolts further reduce weight.
  • Solo 260 mm (10.2 in.) rotor is grabbed by a single-piston rear brake caliper.
  • The standard equipment Antilock Brake System (ABS)* unit features a lightweight, compact design. The ABS enhances brake performance by helping prevent, to a certain extent, wheel locking due to changes in road conditions or excessive braking, by matching stopping power to available traction.
  • *Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
  • Radical aerodynamic styling and smooth bodywork provides the Hayabusa its distinctive look, protects the rider from the wind, and improves fuel efficiency.
  • Advanced aerodynamics offering superb wind protection both for normal and completely tucked-in seating positions.
  • Integrated front turn signals form the outer edges of the functional ram-air-intake scoop.
  • Vertically stacked headlight featuring a projector high beam and a halogen-bulb multi-reflector low beam.
  • Unique tail section featuring streamlined bulges that integrate the rear turn signals.
  • Bright, durable LED taillight, with clear inner lens and red outer lens.
  • 4 analog gauges including step-motor-driven tachometer and speedometer. Round LCD panel includes clock, gear position indicator, S-DMS map indicator, odometer and dual trip meters. Engine-rpm indicator, programmable to blink or stay on between 4,000 and 11,500 rpm.
  • Silver metallic trim around the analog gauges and LCD panel match the styling of race-specification meters.

Engine Features

  • 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.

Key Features

  • Powerful 1340cc, 4-cylinder, DOHC engine employs EFI with dual ram-air intakes.
  • Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets the rider tailor the power delivery.
  • Superbike caliber aluminum frame and suspension delivers superlative handling.
  • Twin Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers with ABS deliver reliable stopping power.
  • Wind-cheating body was truly inspired by a Peregrine Falcon.
