Suzuki Motorcycle India has launched the 2018 Hayabusa in the country. The new 2018 iteration of the Suzuki Hayabusa is priced at Rs 13.87 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi). The new 2018 edition of the superbike gets only cosmetic updates in the form of new colour schemes and subtle updates to the body graphics.
The 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa is now available in two new colour options: Pearl Mira Red/Pearl Glacier White and Glass Sparkle Black. The Glass Sparkle Black colour model now gets red graphics on the fairing as opposed to the all-black paint job on the 2017 model. The white colour variant also features red graphics which enhance the looks of the motorcycle.
In 2016, Suzuki Motorcycle India commenced the sales of the locally-assembled GSX1300R Hayabusa with a reduced price as compared to the imported unit. The Hayabusa is sold in India via CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route and is assembled at the SIMPL factory in Manesar, Gurgaon.
The 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa continues to draw power from the 1,340cc in-line, four-cylinder, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled DOHC engine producing 197bhp and 155Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. The super bike can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 2.74 seconds before topping out at 299km/h.
Suzuki will also showcase the new 2018 Hayabusa at the upcoming Auto Expo 2018 scheduled to take place between February 7th - 14th, 2018. Along with the new Hayabusa, Suzuki will also showcase the new scooter, the Burgman Street and the V-Strom 650 adventure motorcycle.
