New Hayabusa launch in India with Price 13.74 lakh onwards.
With sporty and speed being key focus points, 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa is being offered in two new colour schemes – Metallic Oort Gray and Glass Sparkle Black. The bikes are adorned with updated graphics. A pair of side reflectors for Indian conditions feature.
The company said that- “the 2019 edition of Suzuki Hayabusa, powered by a 1,340 cc engine, will feature an added pair of side reflectors for Indian conditions.”
Bookings for 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa were opened earlier in December at Rs. 1 lakh. While the outgoing model was priced at Rs.13.65 lakhs, ex-sh, the new showroom price is Rs 13,74,364/- (ex-sh, Delhi), a hike that’s below 10k. Suzuki Hayabusa gets power from a 1,340cc, inline, four stroke fuel injected liquid-cooled DOHC engine that returns max power of 197 bhp power at 9,500 rpm and 115 Nm torque at 7,200 rpm.
Powered by a humongous 1340cc inline four-cylinder liquid-cooled motor, the Hayabusa is capable of breaching the 300kmph barrier quite easily. However, despite being powered by a smaller 1299cc motor at launch, it was able to set the then speed record of 312kmph. But with manufacturers competing to eke out higher top speeds from their machines and thus posing threat to safety, EU nations started considering banning the import of such powerful motorcycles
There is some good news for ’Busa fans though. While Suzuki hasn’t gone on record and said it out loud, they have renewed the trademarks for the name. That means, there is a new Hayabusa in the works. It is likely to make a comeback in 2020 with a downsized engine which may not be naturally aspirated any longer.
