The Hayabusa Top Speed
When the Hayabusa was first introduced in 1999, it immediately won acclaim as the fastest-production motorcycle in the world. With a top speed of 186 miles per hour, it was considered the ultimate sport bike for public roads.
The GSX1300R Hayabusa has been updated with a new 1340cc inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 187 horsepower at 9700 rpm and 150 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a six-speed gearbox and can accelerate this 264 kg heavyweight to 200 km/h in just a few seconds before exploding onto the next speed band and hitting 280km/h Hayabusa Top Speed.
0 To 100 KM/H
The Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the fastest motorcycles in the world. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and reach 200 km/h in 6.8 seconds.
A 1340cc inline four-cylinder engine powers the Hayabusa. It has a claimed top speed of 299 km/h.
In 1999, the first-generation Hayabusa took the title of the fastest production bike in the world. It achieved this thanks to a gear-driven counterbalancer and aerodynamic design.
However, the Hayabusa was also criticized for its weight. It’s large size and wide body made it difficult for riders to ride in narrow spaces or tight corners, especially in urban environments.
0 To 200 KM/H
The Hayabusa Top Speed, which means “peregrine falcon” in Japanese, was launched in 1999 to unseat the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the world’s fastest production motorcycle. It was designed with this in mind and would regularly hit 190 or more mph.
While it could never match the Honda CBR1100XX SuperBlackbird in a straight line, it was still impressive enough. The bike was very quick in the 0-140 mph range and would outrun many of the latest 180-200 hp Superbikes.
It was also quite accelerative, which was a rarity in the class, and it easily outpaced both Kawasaki’s ZZR1100 and Honda’s Super Blackbird at the top.
Despite its big power, the Hayabusa was very easy to launch, and it also made excellent use of its slick Suzuki gearbox and progressive clutch. It was, by big-bike standards, very easy to accelerate, and the in-gear roll-on acceleration was a real pleasure.
0 To 280 KM/H
The Hayabusa top speed can reach 280 km/h and is one of the world’s fastest production bikes. It is a symbol of power and speed that has captivated the minds of many motorcycle enthusiasts.
This is a great bike for long sweepers and the fast corners on a twisty road, but it also handles very well on the open road. It does feel a little heavy and long, but the handling is solid and predictable.
The GSX1300R is powered by a 1340cc inline four-cylinder engine, producing an impressive 188 horsepower and 111 lb-ft of torque output. It is paired with a six-speed mesh transmission with a bi-directional quick shift system.
0 To 300 KM/H
In 1999 the GSX1300R Hayabusa was instantly recognized as the world’s fastest production motorcycle, with a top speed of 303 to 312 km/h (188 to 194 mph). It’s been a top contender in competitions like MotoGP for the last decade, and many riders have appreciated its ability to reach high speeds quickly while feeling stable.
The GSX1300R’s 1340cc four-cylinder engine is paired with Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle bodies to deliver a natural and linear response. This powerplant also delivers a stimulating exhaust note thanks to its symmetrical twin silencers, and Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SRAD) intakes in the aerodynamic fairing.
Its superbike-caliber, twin-spar aluminum frame offers a safe ride with nimble handling. It’s backed by KYB-supplied adjustable suspension for optimized aerodynamics and wind protection and an improved braking system that inspires confidence. It also features a six-axis Bosch IMU inertial measurement unit to adjust the bike’s traction control system and ABS.
