2017 Suzuki Hayabusa Review

2017 Suzuki Hayabusa on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The Ultimate Sport, In Timeless Styling...

More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed a machine so unique that it instantly attracted a devoted following around the world. Like its namesake, the Japanese peregrine falcon, the Hayabusa is famed for cutting through the air with incredible agility and performance.

Through countless engineering refinements of the original design, the Hayabusa spirit has endured. The Hayabusa features Brembo Monobloc high-performance calipers and an Antilock Brake System*. Its incomparable performance delivers a fun and sporty ride at any speed, setting the bar high for rivals and defining the “Ultimate Sport Bike.” The radically original yet timeless styling also reflects the spirit of the person who owns a Hayabusa. Its sensational power, speed, smooth ride and overwhelming presence continue to fascinate owners and onlookers alike. Because the Hayabusa is, and always will be, the ultimate sport bike.

*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.

The Suzuki Hayabusa is quite simply the Ultimate Sportbike. Twist the throttle and it responds with awesome acceleration and crisp throttle response in every gear with an unbelievable top-end charge. Thanks to a lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminum frame and state-of-the-art suspension, that performance is matched by equally impressive handling, providing exceptional control in tight corners, reassuring stability in sweeping turns and a smooth ride on the highway. The sleek, aerodynamic body work functions as it appears so the Hayabusa slips through the wind like a Peregrine Falcon.

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. Because the Hayabusa is, and always will be, the ultimate sport bike.

 




2017 Suzuki Hayabusa www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Key Features

Legendary inline-four power plant

The Hayabusa's muscular four-cylinder engine delivers a broader wave of torque for effortless acceleration. I ts 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.

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.

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.

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. The piston diameters 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

A 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.

Note : 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.

Titanium Valves

Lightweight titanium valves allow the use of light valve springs and high lift while maintaining accurate valve control.

Iridium Spark Plugs

An individual coil built into each spark plug cap and spark plugs with finer, Iridium-alloy electrodes produce a hotter spark and more complete combustion; the Iridium-alloy spark plugs have double the service life of conventional spark plugs.

Ready for takeoff

The Hayabusa’s instrument cluster features a set of four round analog gauges, including step-motor-driven tachometer and speedometer, fuel meter and coolant temperature meter. LEDs are used for a programmable engine-rpm indicator, a lowfuel-level warning light, a neutral indicator light, turn-signal indicator lights, a high-beam indicator light, a high coolant temperature warning light, a low oil pressure warning light and a fuel injection system warning light. A round, centered LCD information panel includes clock, gear position indicator, S-DMS map indicator, odometer and dual trip meter displays

Bridgestone tyres 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.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) cylinder plating improves heat transfer, durability and ring seal.
Curved radiator with a compact, dense-core design and engine-management-computer-controlled two ring-type electric fans mounted on the rear of the radiator, increasing the control accuracy and keeping engine temperature stable.
An optimized 6-speed transmission features oil spray to the 4th, 5th, and 6th gears to reduce wear and mechanical noise during highway cruising.
Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) serves as back-torque-limiting system for smooth downshifts and also contributes to a light clutch pull.

A lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminium frame minimizes weight while maintaining high torsional strength.
A bridged aluminium alloy swingarm features a cross-sectional shape for increased rigidity, which also helps cope with improved rear tire grip and increased engine output. The Hayabusa's fully adjustable rear shock absorber has a 43mm piston and 14mm rod diameter.
Vertically stacked twin headlights provide increased light intensity, improved light distribution and match the elegant flow of the Hayabusa styling.
