2013 Suzuki Hayabusa Preview


by Pascal Bastien ,

The iconic Hayabusa needs no further introduction. A true powerhouse, this Japanese monster has long been synonymous with brute force and 300 km/h speeds, obliterating every other superbike on the quarter mile for more than a decade.

Since its redesign in 2008, however, the Suzuki Hayabusa hasn't changed one bit. Meanwhile, a number of fearsome rivals have stolen the spotlight with their lightweight chassis and advanced electronics, including the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 and ZX-10R, Ducati 1199 Panigale, and BMW S1000RR.

While offering the world's fastest road bike still matters a lot to Suzuki, safety-minded executives in Japan decided to add ABS with Brembo radial calipers for 2013. Consequently, those who crave acceleration and all-out speed will now be able to squeeze the brake lever hard at the end of a long straightaway without any real danger or worry.

Wicked power and velocity backed by state-of-the-art ABS technology can be yours for $15,399 thanks to the 2013 Suzuki Hayabusa, available in Marble Daytona Yellow or Glass Sparkle Black.
