The 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa will be offered in two new paint schemes: 'Grey with Red' and 'Black with Grey'. However, apart from the new paint scheme, the 2019 model will not feature any other changes.
The motorcycle continues to be powered by the 1,340cc liquid-cooled in-line four-cylinder engine. It produces 197bhp at 9,500rpm and 155Nm of torque at 7,200rpm. The engine is further mated to a six-speed gearbox and comes with three riding modes.
However, after 20 years, the production of the Hayabusa aka GSX1300R will come to a halt from 31 December 2018. The reason being, the engine on the Suzuki Hayabusa fails to meet the Euro-IV emission norms, introduced back in 2016.
After that, the company had been given a grace period of 2 additional years to sell of its remaining models. The grace period will end this month, bring a halt in the production of the legendary motorcycle.
However, the motorcycle will continue to be on sale in countries such as the USA and India, until stocks last. In terms of pricing of the 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa, being a CKD unit, we can expect it to retain its price tag of Rs 13.65 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
New reports now suggest that Suzuki will bring in a completely refreshed model of the Hayabusa by the end of 2019 or early 2020. This new model will feature a completely new design and is also expected to be powered by a brand new turbocharged engine.
The Suzuki Hayabusa is Japanese for ‘Peregrine Falcon' and was named ‘the world's fastest production bike' in 1999. The motorcycle has an unrestricted top speed of 312km/h, which was later restricted to 299km/h after the ‘Gentleman's Agreement' aimed towards road safety.
Thoughts On The 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa
Although, production of the Hayabusa has been stopped the 2019 model offers a new paint scheme in order to attract customers towards the last remaining motorcycles left in stock. The Suzuki Hayabusa (GSX1300R) rival the likes of the Kawasaki ZX-14R in the country.
