Suzuki is famous for its wonderful bikes. The Suzuki Hayabusa is perhaps the best among all. It is basically a sport bike. Suzuki has started manufacturing this bike since the year 1999. It is the fastest bike of this century. Its maximum speed is about 194 miles per hour. The word “Hayabusa” basically means “peregrine falcon”. At one time, Super Blackbird was the fastest bike in the world. But today, Hayabusa has managed to surpass it by 16 kilometers per hour. Apart from being so fast, it is also one of the most stylish bikes of the world. It has several features like comfort, reliability etc.
When the Hayabusas first came onto the scene, it was highly appreciated by all people of the world. These bikes had the most powerful engines at that time. But later, it got replaced by Kawasaki’s ZX14. These bikes give stunning acceleration and great comfort to the rider. Some people really like the look of this bike, while others hate it. The aerodynamic shape makes it the fastest bike in the world. Suzuki’s, Koji Yoshirua had designed these Hayabusa bikes. These Hayabusa bikes are usually provided with Bridgestone tires and weigh around two hundred and fifteen kilograms. During the year 2000, there was huge competition between Kawasaki and Suzuki. The speed limiting system got introduced in the year 2000. These days, both the organizations claim to have the fastest motorcycle in the world. The 1999 and 2000 models had problems regarding the aluminum rear sub frame. From the year 2001 onwards steel was being used in the rear sub frame. The weight of the bike increased to two hundred and fifty kilograms.
Suzuki brought out the second generation Hayabusas from the year 2008 onwards. They did a minor restyling of the bodywork. Some additional features were added to these new models. These Haybusas are mainly used in top speed competitions. It must be noted that currently it is the most popular customized sport bike. The prime reason is its unique and stunning bodywork. Very often these days, horsepower enhancements are made through nitrous injection and turbo charging. The appearances of these bikes really drive the people crazy.
Usually a sport bike has its highest sale in the first year. But the Hayabusa changed the trend. The sale is increasing every year. Till now, about 100,000 Hayabusas have been sold all around the world. About 10,000 bikes were sold in United States during the period (2005-2006). However few newer elements were added to these bikes in the last few years. The basic appearance got altered slightly. The new front fork enhanced the handling mechanism of this bike. Radial mount brakes also were added to the frame and chassis. This new Hayabusa is relatively bigger in comparison to the previous ones and much improved as well.
