Next-Generation Suzuki Hayabusa To Debut In 2017

Written By:

Suzuki has confirmed that the next generation Hayabusa is in the making, and we can expect the revamped superbike to make its way sometime by end of 2017.

Suzuki President, Toshihiro Suzuki stated that his engineers are working on the new next-gen Hayabusa motorcycle, which will follow the design cues of its current sibling.

Suzuki also said that the new Hayabusa will be equipped with various electronic riding aids, to be precise seven different riding modes. This is the first time that a Suzuki official has confirmed about the next-gen Hayabusa.

The 2017 Hayabusa remained identical to its second-generation iteration which was launched back in 2008. The 2017 Hayabusa was recently launched in India and is being assembled in the country.

The Suzuki Hayabusa is powered by a 1,340cc four-cylinder liquid cooled DOHC engine pumping out 194bhp of power and 155Nm of torque.

Suzuki showcased the new GSX-R1000 at the Intermot show this year. The 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa may share the same electronic aids which are seen on the GSX-R1000 motorcycle.

The 2018 iteration of the Suzuki Hayabusa is expected to shed some weight. In its current form the motorcycle has a kerb weight of 266kg. Despite its bulky nature, the motorcycle is smooth and fun-to-ride.

Although Suzuki has not confirmed a time frame for the arrival of 2018 Hayabusa, but we can expect that the next-gen superbike from the Japanese manufacturer will debut at next year's Tokyo Motor Show or EICMA motorcycle show.
