Default How a Suzuki Hayabusa is assembled in India

A very interesting article about the assembly of the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa, which is imported as CKD form has been shared by Autocar India right from the Assembly Line at Suzuki's Gurgaon Plant !

Source & Full Article: ACI

Unlike in Japan, the assembly line is completely manual

This is great they have started assembling locally, but they have reduced the price by only Rs 2.5 lakh. I'm sure they are benefitting more than that on local assembly and should pass down the benefit to the customers. Since its a low volume game and I'm sure they can start local assembly of more models to really revitalise their sales. Suzuki has always suffered from dismal sales and extremely limited product portfolio.

Any reason to choose the Hayabusa, why not the smaller GSXRs or even the GSXSs? Busa do not seem to very popular anymore at least globally and its starting to show its age.

Not sure about the numbers, but just by what I see on the road - the Busa seems to be Suzuki's best selling big bike in India.

It surely is and at the price that its selling the big bike for 15 lakhs its a wow bike to buy.

Hope someday I have that kind of budget to buy a bike.

Suzuki starts delivering locally assembled Hayabusa in India

Suzuki Motorcycles has started delivering locally-assembled Hayabusa bikes in India. The first India-made Hayabusa has recently been delivered to a customer in Delhi. The company has also revealed that more units will be delivered to customers in the coming weeks.

Suzuki had launched the locally-assembled Hayabusa in India in March this year, at a price of Rs. 13.57 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Assembling the bike locally helped the manufacturer to price it at around Rs. 2.5 lakh cheaper than the price point of the CBU model sold earlier.

The CKD assembled models of the Hayabusa in India feature the same specifications as that of the CBU models that have been sold in the country all these years. It is thus powered by a 1,340cc, liquid-cooled, 4-cylinder, 4-stroke engine that is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The combination is reported to make around 194 BHP and 154 Nm of torque. Reports also suggest that Suzuki is mulling the introduction of a supercharged version of the bike.
