2011 Suzuki Hayabusa | Quick Look

2011 Suzuki Motorcycle

The original hypersport headbanger, the Suzuki Hayabusa has long been the symbol of unadulterated straight-line power.

It also handles very well and, despite a 573-pound (claimed) wet weight, with its fully adjustable suspension and sports handling the Hayabusa is not just a straight-line missile.

A 2008 redesign updated the brakes and the radical bodywork, while the displacement was bumped up to 1340cc.

The inline, 16-valve, four-cylinder motor comes with three rider-selectable riding modes to keep things sensible on the street.

Long favored as a drag customizer’s dream, the 2011 Hayabusa is available in new Pearl Mirage White with gold trim, and Pearl Nebular Black with red trim.
