Turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa On The Way; Expected Late 2018

Written By:

The Suzuki Hayabusa has remained almost unchanged in its nearly 20-year production run, and for next year, the motorcycle will remain so, as reported earlier. For the 2019 model, however, when the Hayabusa is turning 20-years-old, Suzuki could give the motorcycle a new heart.

As per sources, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer could equip the 'Busa' with a turbocharged engine, for the 2019 model. Suzuki could use the turbocharging technology that was showcased with the Recursion Concept, that was showcased during the Tokyo Motor Show.

The Recursion concept used a 588cc engine, and as per Suzuki, the motorcycle makes big-bike power from mid-size displacement. It is unclear if Suzuki will downsize displacement for the new Hayabusa, or maintain the same displacement.
