What better place to sample the new Suzuki Hayabusa than a runway? Well, a road test would be nice, so Fagan did both at the UK media launch...

  • Consult your doctor if your 'busa goes under 100 for more than 15 minutes

  • I don't understand the reason for the new Busa. The original was the baddest on the block, at least until the ZX-14 (ZZR-1400) came along. The gen 2 never caught up with the gen 2 ZX. With the gen 3 I was hoping it would retake the crown but they never even tried. The stronger internals probably mean that it will take more boost if you want to go in that direction but otherwise what's the point?

  • as a previous Suzuki Hayabusa owner consider the 2021 Hayabusa a joke it is nothing what is considered to be a Hayabusa better off buying a 1000

  • and now, in other news, suzuki brings out a bike that literally no one has been waiting for. why not use some of your motogp championship winning technology and improve the GSXR a tad? no? such a wasted effort

  • Over the years, Suzuki could have learned a lot from commercially available turbo kits for Busas with 300+ hp. Adapting and downtuning a system to 240-250 hp and make it Euro 5 compliant. Gen 2 owners won't change to this one, it's not worth the money. The Ducati Streetfighter at 208 hp eats this Busa alive. Dissapointing.

  • Rode one of these today, agree with Stathams comments, its rapid but doesn't have the top end power of something like an S1000RR. I think its ideal if you want something fast and smooth to ride 2 up but can't face an adventure bike..

  • I'm forever astounded when they make a stunner of a bike then shove they disgusting end cans on as if they either ran out of imagination or money to finish the bike off. I'd prefer taking a 10 meter run up and smacking the cock that thought that exhaust up over the head with that end can

  • Totally agree with the statement "you are not going to trade a gen 2 for a gen 3 in a hurry". That said, I like the new model and appreciate the changes and the improvements in electronics. I'll keep my gen 2 though.

    ians iansians ians7 dagen geleden
  • I dunno, I have a suspicion that like the GSX-R1000, the Hayabusa has a shitload of power waiting to be unlocked with a tune and catless system... The amount of engine changes and the power just don’t add up and the GSX-R didn’t even go full throttle stock.

  • i've watched a few if these new "busa" reviews and its like your journo's have all been told "shhh don't mention the zzr" lol ! well i've owned 2 hayabusa's, and i have a 14 plate zzr1400 performance sport, i'd have the big kwaka any day of the week over the suzuki, and it's faster, so it begs the question, whats the point of the new busa ? i say come on kawasaki, bring out a supercharged zzr1400 for 2022 and blow away the oposition into last century and forget the gentlemens agreement to restrict to 186mph ! wow what a last great hurrah that'd be before the enviromentalists shut squish the production of the combustion engine. i promise i'll buy one. 😁 i want a return of mental fast edgy bikes that scare ya.

  • For such a big heavy bike, I would expect more technological innovation like the H2SX provides, otherwise I would just get a lighter supersport. This new gen doesn't seem very different compared to last gen.

  • Had a hayabusa 2005 model, loved it, looked at getting back I to bikes (after long illness) not a hope in hell £16k for a new bike, the bike industry is definitely on a decline in the UK, the born again money to burn bikers are killing the industry, there are no up and coming bikers to replace them once the arthritis takes over, it used to be a cheaper alternative to a car, the whole industry has gotten gready, that everything from clothing to bolt on goodies, completely out of the normal man in the streets reach...

  • Suzuki should have made a fjr1300 or concourse 1400 competitor with all this technology and lower power. Bigger fairing and wind screen. Heated grips. Rear hard bags maybe. That inflated price. Then in 2 years they should have made the "Hayabusa" technology stripped except ABS and a quick shifter. Power significantly bumped up with a turbo or supercharger. What we have here just isn't relevant to why people buy Busa!

    • The ZH2 and Rocket are nakeds. The only hyperbikes at the moment are the Busa, the remaining stocks of ZZR1400 and the Ninja H2(sort of). The funny thing is almost all the new sportbikes make more powerthan this Busa, the ZZR is going away and the Ninja H2 is ~£10k more expensive. Now if this Busa had a turbo, 250-300hp and a £15k pricetag it would have been a return to its good old days.

  • How comes manufactures use Brembo etc instead of doing them themselves? Sorry if silly question just always wondered

    Zippo FlamesZippo Flames12 dagen geleden
    • Cost vs quality. Brembo can make one set of brakes very well then sell them to makers and have them on a lot of bikes. If makers wanted to do the same that design cost would only be shared over their own bikes so it would work out as more per bike. Same goes for a lot of parts shared bits like Bosch electronics, Ohlins suspension and so on.
