2004 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa

The Hayabusa blends a cohesive mix of high-performance aerodynamics with powerful engine design

The Suzuki Hayabusa has long been the pinnacle of large-displacement hyperbikes. The new 2004 edition of the GSX1300R continues this tradition of speed and performance. The ’04 Hayabusa comes in two striking new color selections and is equipped with a new passing switch for the headlight and revamped hazard lights.

Motivation for the Hayabusa comes in the form of a potent inline-four-cylinder engine. The high-powered motor is equipped with a 16-valve, DOHC cylinder head with narrow 14-degree valve angles. Electronic fuel injection, ram-air intake, a gear-driven counterbalancer, six-speed transmission and large-capacity hydraulic clutch all enhance overall engine performance.

Optimum aerodynamic efficiency requires a precise fairing shape and the GSX1300R achieves this. Indeed, the elements of the Hayabusa’s fairing, headlight and turn signals result in the lowest coefficient of drag of any Suzuki ever produced.

Anchoring the hugely powerful 1300cc engine is an aluminum-alloy twin-spar frame suspended by 43mm titanium-nitride-coated forks offering 120mm of travel. A link-type rear suspension system mates a bridged aluminum swingarm with a fully adjustable shock for 140mm of travel. Wide, cast-aluminum wheels shod with radial tires provide ample traction at both ends. Braking comes from six-piston calipers gripping dual 320mm rotors in the front and a twin-piston caliper and 240mm rear rotor in the rear. This combination of performance and sporting features creates the awesome 2004 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa.
