Default re: The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa unveiled with a 1,340 cc engine. EDIT: Now launched at Rs. 16.40 lakh

Not a bad pricing in my opinion considering the amount of electronics that this Gen 3 has and the better brakes. So, a increase of under 3 lacs over Gen 2 is a good price point, when everyone was actually expecting Suzuki to price it around 18 to 20 lakh ex showroom

If you are interested in booking the new 2021 model, you can do that online at the company's official website for India that is web addressed at https://www.suzukimotorcycle.co.in. The company has kept the minimum token amount of the bike as Rs 1 lakh. Given the Covid-19 scenario, the brand is currently accepting online bookings of the new Busa.

I heard from the New Mumbai Suzuki dealership that white color is already sold out pan india!
Did they bring in extremely limited units ?
The on-road quote for Mumbai is 20.50L.

I think they did get limited quantities. The Mumbai dealer claims 100 bikes already booked on day 1. Not bad for a 20l bike

A lot of pre-orders from prev Gen 1 and Gen 2 customers. I know several here in the North waiting to collect theirs.

Total quantity under 1st lot allocated was 100 units.

But really curious to know on what basis are they quoting 4+ lacs over the ex-showroom price?

Yikes! 20 plus is a bit too much!

18.45 is the quote that a friend got in Delhi who had already sold his Gen 2 Busa last year. A few cancellations due to the pandemic and the dealer is saying that if he books this week, he can have his by July.

I am just sitting back and waiting with my popcorn for all the 'first' and exclusive videos that are going to show up on Youtube once the delivery begins.

Suzuki Motorcycle India confirms that the new Hayabusa has been sold out in the country, in just a couple of days since it went on sale.

Remember reading posts by Gen 1/Gen 2 Hayabusa owners in the now-closed Hayabusa thread lamenting about reduction in peak HP/Torque of the Gen 3.

It appears that those spec-sheet-disappointments are unwarranted, the Gen 3 Hayabusa is faster than the Gen 2 in 0-100 kph. Quarter mile performance remains identical to that of the Gen 2, as per the article.

Goes without saying that it could also stop faster/in lesser distance thanks to those massive Brembo Stylemas (if at all there's any noteworthy comparison in terms of stopping performance).

These changes would be good-to-haves in the real world, where the improved low/mid-range power delivery would give a higher adrenaline rush.

Moral of the story: while old is still gold (Gen 2), the new (Gen 3) is not so bad either.

Really hope to own/ride one someday.

Gen 3 is a good motorcycle and not even existing owners consider it to be bad when compared to the Gen 1 and Gen 2 and appreciate the added electronics and better brakes. But the Gen 3 is definitely not ‘Bonkers’ as the Gen 1 and Gen 2 were when they were launched.

Hayabusa was always about its potent engine and that is what has given it the legendary status over the years. That is why many don’t feel that Suzuki did justice by what they managed to get out of the Gen 3 especially when they had over a decade on hand to make it even more legendary.

Finally, this is what the designer of the Hayabusa Mr. Koji Yoshiura had to say in 2008 when Gen 2 was launched. Wonder what he has to say about the Gen 3’s power plant now

I can totally understand this sentiment.

However if we look at the status quo as of today from a slightly different perspective, the MY2022 Hayabusa is still a potent/equally bonkers force to contend with.

Let's consider what Kawasaki has done with their super-tourer strategy. They had the ZZR1400, which was a competitor to the Hayabusa. The spiritual successor of the ZZR is now the Ninja H2 SX range, which has a supercharged 998cc I4 that puts out 198 HP/137 NM. Kawasaki managed to satiate the "more-bonkers" demand of it's ZZR customer base with this Ninja H2 SX.

Quarter mile performance figures for the H2 SX: 10.04s

If we compare this with the quarter mile performance of the Gen 2 Hayabusa, there isn't much of difference and as a matter of fact, the Gen 2 is a bit faster: 9.7s

Now if we consider that the Gen 3 Hayabusa is at par with the Gen 2 in terms of quarter mile performance, it means that the Gen 3 Hayabusa is still a potent force to contend with the Ninja H2 SX, which despite the advancement in engine technology, is still at-par or a bit slower as the numbers suggest.

Coming to the key point in this conversation; should Suzuki have come out with a chest-thumping, competition-beating, drumroll-sounding Gen 3 Hayabusa? - yes, but they simply do not have the financial wherewithal to invest in such radical improvements in engine technology.

Suzuki is and has always been a poor-man's bike company, with their entire product strategy appearing to be to keep costs within a certain ceiling, by doing incremental improvements to older generation engines.

The Ninja H2 SX used to cost ~30l OTR (BS4 era), with the H2 SX SE stretching to 35l. Hypothetically speaking, if Suzuki were to have invested funds (which they don't have to begin with) into a supercharged Hayabusa, would they have recouped that investment? Chances of a 30-35l Suzuki being sold in sufficient volume are unlikely.

Another perspective of looking at the Gen 3 Hayabusa is that it still exists and is technologically better than it's older rivals. The ZZR1400 is sold in few markets, but doesn't get technologically advanced goodies. The Honda Blackbird is now dead, murdered by the Peregrine Falcon a long time back. The Yamaha FJR 1300 with its ~150 HP is pretty much irrelevant when compared to even the Gen 1/Gen 2 Hayabusa.

Before we move on to a world with EVs, Suzuki has put out a modern interpretation of the Hayabusa (without changing the design too much) and we motorcycle enthusiasts have that juicy 1340cc I4 with class-leading electronics to enjoy.

Perhaps the Gen 4 Hayabusa will mimic the same technology used in electric shavers, and then we would reminisce about the good old days when the Hayabusa existed and had a soul (the engine).

PS: being an ex-Suzuki owner spoiled by the creamy smooth 750cc I4, some of the opinions mentioned above could be borderline fanboyish/biased.

The Hayabusa is a legend in its own right, and a mighty one too. I guess the First time this bike gained traction with the common man was when John rode it in Dhoom 1. Good to see this bike still ruling the charts
