Suzuki has launched the 2020 edition of the Hayabusa superbike in India. Point to note, this is not the BS6 compliant motor, but just a model year update for the Hayabusa which has been on sale since 2009 and is soon going to be discontinued before the new generation model arrives. This is the final update to the BS4 compliant Hayabusa and the bikes will now be available in limited quantity. The refreshed model asks for INR 13,74,941 ex-showroom Delhi.
The 2020 Suzuki Hayabusa will be available in new grey and red paint options with a refreshed livery. Apart from the new body colours, the 2020 Suzuki Hayabusa will come with a new front brake caliper.
Powering the Hayabusa is a 1340cc, in-line, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke petrol motor producing 199.7 HP of power and 155 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike gets dual-channel ABS and riding modes; but is now an outdated product compared to competition which is evolving at a fast pace. Arch rival Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R is also going to be discontinued when the new emission norms kick in.
The Hayabusa for its engine capacity and power output is a very attractively priced motorcycle. This is because Suzuki brings this motorcycle to India via the CKD kits and it is assembled in Gurgaon.
The Suzuki Hayabusa became a popular nameplate across the performance motorcycling segment in India after it featured in the Bollywood movie Dhoom.
