It is a sporting motorcycle that has become a performance legend in its own time.

An aerodynamic machine inspired by and named for a Japanese peregrine falcon

known for cutting through the wind with incredible ease. A machine so unique

when it was introduced that it required its own new classification: Ultimate Sport.

A Performance Legend

Suzuki engineered the Hayabusa to perform like a heavyweight boxer-muscular yet surprisingly agile. While riders rarely need to call on its full punch off the line, the overabundant power and fleet-footed performance inspire confidence in everyday riding. That restrained yet refined energy is the presence that turns heads when a Hayabusa and rider pass. The Hayabusa's high-quality finish and attention to detail betray unequalled pride of craftsmanship that will become your pride of ownership.

The bold design also gives it a unique aura and formidable presence not found in other bikes.

Ultimate Sport Bike

Slice through the wind

A force under your control

Turn heads wherever you go

Forged pistons and

PVD-coated rings

The chrome nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction while improving cylinder sealing. Forged three-ring aluminium-alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength, while PVD-coated rings reduce friction and improve cylinder sealing.

The Hayabusa design perfectly merges motorcycle and rider. Carefully sculpted bodywork tames the wind to maximize the more-than-ample power of the Hayabusa engine. Extensive wind tunnel testing with a rider onboard helped to find the ultimate shape for high-speed riding. The radical aerodynamic styling and smoother bodywork not only gives the Hayabusa its unique look but also protects the rider from the wind and improves fuel efficiency.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve

Suzuki’s advanced fuel-injection system with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) induction improves combustion efficiency and makes  throttle response feel more natural.


Selectable engine mapping

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) lets riders select engine settings to match  preferences or riding conditions. The system allows the rider to select a different map to suit personal preferences in various riding conditions, such as choosing one map for highway cruising and another map for tighter roads.


Legendary inline-fourpower plant

1340cm3 in-line four-cylinder fuel-injected, liquid-cooled DOHC engine. The Hayabusa's muscular engine delivers a broader wave of torque for effortless acceleration. Its advanced design boasts liquid-cooling, ram-air downdraft induction with Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle bodies, fuel injection employing twin injectors controlled by a 32-bit ECU, and hollow double overhead cams operating four valves per cylinder.


Brembo Monoblock front brake calipers

310mm (12.2 inch) dual-floating-discs mated with the radial-mount Brembo monoblock front brake calipers. The calipers are lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together callipers, deliver better feedback, and are fitted with larger pistons that increase initial bite for greater controllability. The hollow-type mounting bolts further reduce weight.


Inverted cartridge

front forks

KYB inverted cartridge forks feature a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC)coating surface treatment on the 43mm stanchion tubes to reduce friction and increase reaction to small surface irregularities. The forks provide front wheel travel of 120mm. Spring preload, compression damping and rebound damping are fully adjustable.


Bridgestone tires

and rear brake

Hayabusa is equipped with the Bridgestone BT-015, which is specially developed for the motorcycle. A single-piston, pin-slide TOKICO rear brake caliper works with ABS. The rear disc is 260mm in diameter and 5.5mm thick.



Lightweight, high-performance ABS

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.

*ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.


Vertically stacked headlight

Integrated front turn signals form the outer edges of the ram-air-intake scoop. And vertically stacked headlight featuring a projector high beam and a halogen-bulb multi-reflector low beam.


Shaped by the wind, with wind-cheating aerodynamics.

Powered by the largest-displacement Suzuki sportbike engine ever built.

A machine with unique, timeless styling and long-distance comfort.

A motorcycle that defines balanced performance.

A two-wheeled legend, now waiting for you, at your Suzuki dealer.

Take one home, and ride your own legend.

LED taillight

Unique tailsection featuring streamlined bulges carrying integrated rear turn signals and shaped with jet-engine motif. And bright, durable LED taillight, with clear inner lens and red outer lens.


Instrument cluster

Four analog gauges including step-motor-driven tachometer and speedometer.  Round LCD panel includes clock, gear position indicator, SDMS 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 evoking American GT muscle-car image.

Hayabusa derives its legendary ride not just from a perspective of power, handling and aerodynamics. Every aspect of the design-from a top-tier chassis to braking system-all combine to deliver unparalleled performance. Riders have sometimes described the Hayabusa as a well-trained wild animal. And like a thoroughbred, the bike responds to even the most nuanced input from the rider. The movement of the suspension is not stiff; instead the bike quietly absorbs shock like a luxury sedan. Likewise, the advanced braking system confidently reduces the speed of the Hayabusa's large chassis.

Mean city streets by night or winding country roads under temperate skies, the Hayabusa draws attention wherever you go. Even at rest, the rebellious styling and powerful look can stop people in the street and attract envious stares.
