    25 years of Hayabusa: A legacy of Innovation and Unmatched performance across generations

    Introduced in 1998 as the Hayabusa (GSX1300R), the Suzuki Hayabusa became a global phenomenon for its high power and handling performance, coupled with its unique and aerodynamic styling. This first generation “Ultimate Sport” machine became Suzuki’s flagship motorcycle.

    The Hayabusa evolved over time, with the second generation arriving in 2007 featuring a larger engine of 1340cc along with the newly adopted Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS). Sales expanded globally, with Japanese domestic specs introduced in 2014 and even reached India with production & sales started in 2016.

    As of 2021, the Hayabusa is in its third generation, boasting enhanced engine and chassis alongside various electronic controls. Incorporating the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S) such as traction control systems and Bi-directional quick shift systems, this model embodies the concept of “The Refined Beast,” balancing power with control.
