Launched in 1999.
"If you think the ability of a motorcycle to approach 190 mph or reach the quarter-mile in under 10 seconds is at best frivolous and at worst offensive, this still remains a motorcycle worthy of just consideration. The Hayabusa is Speed in all its glory. But Speed is not all the Hayabusa is," commented Jay Koblenz of Motorcycle Consumer News.
Suzuki Hayabusa or GSX1300R, the dream bike of every rider, the fastest production motorcycle ever built in this world and a lot more are the synonyms of the Hayabusa. Since its birth in 1999, the giant is known for its eye vanishing speed. Pumping out at a top speed of 312 kmph, the moto-machine leaves no room for its rivals.
'Hayabusa' is a Japanese word which means Peregrine Falcon, which is a bird used as a metaphor for speed due to its vertical hunting dive. Well, the machine has got the same dimension at front which is carved to have a dived shape. This design is not all about to resemble the falcon. But to aerodynamically balance the two wheeled machine even at the fastest velocity. It is said that the name 'Hayabusa' was purposefully badged in order to chop off the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird to be the world's fastest production motorcycle. The fun behind the naming is that the peregrine falcon has blackbirds as its prey. With a difference of at least 16 kmph, the Hayabusa surpassed the Super Blackbird.
Once there was a time when the European manufacturers struggled pathetically hard to compete with the Japanese firm. They even wanted the firm to clear Europe. Finally, it led to an informal agreement between the Japanese and European companies regarding the speed limit of motorcycles. In 2000, another Japanese automobile manufacturer, Kawasaki introduced the Ninja ZX-12R to replace the Hayabusa to become the world's fastest production motorcycle. But the Ninja was dropped out remarking a short of 6 kmph difference. Since then, there was no machine to threaten the dictatorship of the Hayabusa.
The 2013 Hayabusa GSX1300R comes with a gigantic 1340 cc, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine. The machine generates a stunning power of 146 KW 195.7 hp @ 9800 rpm and an outstanding torque of 154 Nm @ 10200 rpm. It can strike a maximum velocity of 312 kmph. Media have reported that the Hayabusa can move on at a consistent speed of 299 kmph. It defines the power of Japanese discovery.
By the Hayabusa, Suzuki transparently explains the eminence of a motorcycle that moves along with the wind speed. Moulded out in the very modern sketches, Suzuki binds the Hayabusa as the most modernised machine since its birth. The motorcycle defines what exactly a bi-wheeler must be. It acts as a good racing wheeler at the track. But the machine is not all about speeding since it is entangled with gorgeous number of features those switch on safety, pleasure, comfort and everything you care on a motorcycle. Perhaps, it would be the ultimate word for motorcycling, the Hayabusa.
