THE BEAT GOES ON
At the turn of the 20th century Suzuki surprised the world by introducing the Hayabusa. Over the last decade, the motorcycle has evolved while staying true to its concept-the pinnacle of high-performance motorcycles. Its sensational power, speed, smooth ride and overwhelming presence continue to fascinate owners and onlookers alike. The addition of a new ABS and Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers takes the Hayabusa and rider to new heights. We invite you to become an owner of the Hayabusa key, and feel the beat of Hayabusa as you fly through the streets. Join us and become a proud owner. May your heart beat in unison to the Hayabusa. Because the Hayabusa is, and always will be, the ultimate sport bike.

Hiroshi Iio
Chief Engineer
Since the birth of the first Hayabusa in 1999 until 2003 I was involved in engine design. Then I was honored to become chief engineer for the overall project. First let me say that you cannot talk about this motorcycle without mentioning its aerodynamics.
Even when we were refining the design for the second generation, the team placed top priority on improving its already legendary aerodynamic efficiency. The Hayabusa really stands above and apart from other ultimate sport bikes, and its consummate form follows the function of the bike's aerodynamic characteristics. Plus, its optimal balance and motion control translate into the ease of handling that you experience when actually riding the bike. With the addition of a new ABS and
Brembo Monobloc calipers, the brakes will increase confidence in control the bike. Thanks to the strong support of owners from around the world, this bike has even more room to run, and we intend to evolve its performance to ensure it is loved by riders in the future.

Yuichi Nakashima
Test Rider
I have been the test rider of the Hayabusa since the very first model. I can say the Hayabusa's engine feels so overwhelmingly powerful and finely tuned that there is nothing like it. After riding the Hayabusa, you won't want to ride another motorcycle. Just experience once the Hayabusa's powerful acceleration from low to high speeds and its nimble handling and you too will be hooked. I encourage you to give it a try. I also ride the Hayabusa outside of work. I enjoy the strong camaraderie among owners, and when encountering a fellow Hayabusa rider we typically greet one another. I hope you become an owner and can enjoy taking part in this great biking life.

 



 

 

2013 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R ABS Key Features

Speed Under Control - Suzuki's All-New 2013 Hayabusa

Suzuki has overhauled one of Suzuki's most popular, high-powered sports motorcycles, the Suzuki Hayabusa, now equipped with Brembo front brakes and the first in Suzuki's sportsbike range to feature an Antilock Brake System (ABS).

Originally introduced in 1999 and consistently tested as the fastest production motorcycle in the world, the iconic Hayabusa redefined the hyper-sport category and in doing so required its own classification 'ultimate sport'.

Named after the Japanese bird of prey capable of speeds in excess of 300 km/h, the Suzuki Hayabusa has been designed for maximum performance and represents the pinnacle of sportsbike engineering, performance and styling.

The all-new 2013 Hayabusa is the first in Suzuki's sportsbike range to feature an Antilock Brake System (ABS) to enhance brake performance and prevent wheel locking due to changed road conditions or excessive braking*.

In addition the 2013 Hayabusa is now equipped with top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers that deliver prompt feedback to the rider, with an enlarged piston diameter from 32-30mm to 32-32mm meaning greater force is applied to the brake disc, resulting in increased initial bite to tame the Hayabusa's incredible power.

Packed with race-bred technology, the 2013 Hayabusa features Suzuki's Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system and a 1,340cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder engine providing strong power delivery and impressive torque throughout its broad powerband.

Suzuki's original Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) lets riders select one of three engine maps to suit road conditions and their riding preferences, while the slick-shifting six-speed transmission works in conjunction with the innovative Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) back-torque-limiting clutch to deliver smooth and controlled downshifts.

Inverted cartridge front forks feature a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating surface treatment on the 43mm stanchion tubes to reduce friction and increase reaction to small irregularities on the road.

Countless engineering refinements and extensive wind tunnel testing have contributed to find the ultimate shape for high-speed riding with the radical aerodynamic styling giving the all-new Hayabusa its unique look whilst also improving fuel efficiency.

A lightweight twin-spar aluminium-alloy frame and aggressive and sporty styling in a Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Oort Grey or Pearl Glacier White/Metallic Oort Grey colour scheme complete the potent package.

"Thanks to its incredible design and engineering and of course the support of Hayabusa riders all over Australia, the Hayabusa stands above and apart from other ultimate sport bikes," said Perry Morison, General Manager Motorcycles, Suzuki Australia.

"The addition of ABS and Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers take the 2013 Hayabusa to a whole new level and it really is an unmatched combination of raw race power with agility and control."

2013 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R ABS Features and Benefits

Slice through the wind
The Hayabusa design perfectly merges motorcycle and rider. Carefully sculpted bodywork tames the wind to maximize the more-than-ample power of the Hayabusa engine. Extensive wind tunnel testing with a rider onboard helped to find the ultimate shape for high-speed riding. The radical aerodynamic styling and smoother bodywork not only gives the Hayabusa its unique look but also protects the rider from the wind and improves fuel efficiency.

Legendary inline-four
power plant
The Hayabusa's muscular four-cylinder engine delivers a broader wave of torque for effortless acceleration. Its advanced design boasts liquid-cooling, ram-air downdraft induction with Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle bodies, fuel injection employing twin injectors controlled by a 32-bit ECU, and hollow double overhead cams operating four valves per cylinder.

Forged pistons and PVD-coated rings
Forged three-ring aluminum-alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength. The oil control ring on each piston is electro-plated with a chrome-nitride coating applied in a vacuum chamber using a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) system.
The chrome nitride PVD coating is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction while improving cylinder sealing. The upper piston ring also features an L-shaped cross section, with combustion pressure pushing the ring tighter against the cylinder wall to further reduce blowby and increase the force actually pushing the piston down.

Selectable engine mapping - Suzuki Drive Mode Selector
The Hayabusa features the unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system, which allows the rider to select one of three engine control maps.
The system allows the rider to select a different map to suit personal preferences in various riding conditions, such as choosing one map for highway cruising and another map for tighter roads.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve
The Hayabusa engine is fitted with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle bodies. Unlike conventional fuel-injection systems, the SDTV system has two butterfly valves in each throttle body barrel. The rider controls the primary valve via a throttle grip, and the engine management system automatically controls the secondary valve, opening it incrementally to maintain optimum intake charge velocity based on engine rpm, gear position and primary valve opening. This precise, carefully controlled system improves combustion efficiency and makes throttle response feel more natural to the rider.

TURN HEADS WHEREVER YOU GO
Mean city streets by night or winding country roads under temperate skies, the Hayabusa draws attention wherever you go. Even at rest, the rebellious styling and powerful look can stop people in the street and attract envious stares.

Suzuki designers carefully considered every aspect of the bold Hayabusa look-from standout features like lights to the many mechanical details subtly hidden from view.
Hayabusa owners often remark that nothing compares to the awe inspired by a Hayabusa. When parked, the bike invites visitors and when riding through the city it invites envious onlookers.
And whenever Hayabusa riders encounter each other they often discover instant camaraderie.

A FORCE UNDER YOUR CONTROL
Hayabusa derives its legendary ride not just from a perspective of power, handling and aerodynamics. Every aspect of the design-from a top-tier chassis to braking system-combines to deliver unparalleled performance.
Riders have sometimes described the Hayabusa as a well-trained wild animal. And like a thoroughbred, the bike responds to even the most nuanced input from the rider. The movement of the suspension is not stiff; instead the bike quietly absorbs shock like a luxury sedan. Likewise, the advanced braking system confidently reduces the speed of the Hayabusa's large chassis. The braking system of the 2013 model offers even more refinements to deliver greater confidence for the rider.

Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers
Lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together calipers, the Hayabusa's top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers deliver better feedback to the rider. Piston diameter were enlarged from 32-30mm to 32-32mm. Larger pistons help apply greater force to the brake disc, which results in increased initial bite and a more controlled feeling.

Lightweight, high-performance ABS
New, standard equipment Antilock Brake System (ABS) unit features a lightweight, compact design. The ABS enhances brake performance by helping prevent, to a certain extent, wheel locking due to changes in road conditions or excessive braking, by matching stopping power to available traction.
?The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.

Inverted cartridge front forks
KYB inverted cartridge forks feature a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating surface treatment on the 43mm stanchion tubes to reduce friction and increase reaction to small surface irregularities. The forks provide front wheel travel of 120mm. Spring preload, compression damping and rebound damping are fully adjustable.

Bridgestone tires and rear brake
Hayabusa is equipped with the Bridgestone BT-015, which is specially developed for the motorcycle. The tire's profile and compound were developed through a variety of testing to achieve a high level of stability and handling. A single-piston, pin-slide TOKICO rear brake caliper works with newly equipped ABS. The rear disc is 260mm in diameter and 5.5mm thick.

Convenient features
A variety of convenient features complement the Hayabusa's unmatched performance. The fuel tank lifts for maintenance simply by removing the seat and two bolts. A storage compartment under the rear seat provides space to hold tools and owners manuals. Two hooks under the rear seat secure helmets, while four luggage hooks help to secure items to the seat. The 5-way adjustable brake lever and 4-way adjustable clutch lever both allow fine-tuning to the rider's taste.
? The prop stay shown is an optional part.
