Since its introduction more than a decade ago, the Hayabusa has enjoyed a dedicated army of followers and today Suzuki revealed its latest incarnation to the world’s media at Intermot. The front brake has been upgraded to Brembo monobloc high performance calipers and ABS has been added as standard along with other technical refinements.
The manufacturer describes ‘radical aerodynamic restyling’ that has been created through extensive wind tunnel testing to ensure that the machine is the optimum shape for high speed riding. The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) has also been added to allow the rider to select from three engine control maps.
