My Gen 3 Busa

General Information

The Hayabusa was designed to be a comfortable sport bike. When the Falcon hit the streets in 1999 it was a bird of prey, and Peregrine Falcons are as agile as they are fast. As motorcycles in general improved their performance and handling, the Hayabusa has been relegated to exploiting it's crazy straight line speed as a bulletproof platform for extreme power. Now stretching and lowering have become fashion obligations.

On my 10th year of owning this amazing machine, I wanted to build on that original direction Suzuki set for the Hayabusa and add high quality suspension, brakes and controls. It's cool that a lot of people are appreciating that inspiration for the build. Even the paint scheme was intended less as a canvas for personal expression and more like a factory approach.

Parts highlights include:

Yoshimura 4 into 1 R77 full system (dyno tune with PCV & Autotune)
Corbin Seat
1" risers
Helibars (1.5")
Brembo GP4 nickel coated calipers
Brembo underslung rear caliper
Brembo RCS 19 Corsa Corte brake MC & RCS 17 clutch MC
Brembo Discs (front)
Rizoma Mirrors
Ohlins forks and shock
Amplink Power distribution
Garmin 595 GPS (with traffic/weather/TPMS)
Core Moto Apex Wheels
Goodyear Kevlar brake and clutch lines
EK 3D chain (530)
Sato Racing Rearsets
Titanium fasteners (all over)
Zero Gravity Smoked Sheild
Custom paint by Deuce Moto

She's beautiful....a credit to you. Look after her and she'll look after you :)
Pros: Everything but ( in the con's section )
Cons: Needs Titanium axles , Rear passenger pegs needed in light version or cut off , and repaint black , Rizoma mirrors can see the rubber cushion so some trim up work ;)
Willie I send you a link to some ultra light black foot pegs for the rear mounts .
Best of the best birds out there .

Just love the mods you have done to the bike. Most of the busa's in the US are lowered, stretched etc. but this is something totally different.
I have to consider those mirrors :thumbsup:

@voodoodoo , those Rizoma mirrors are works of art. They are aluminum, not plastic and are constructed to a very high level of refinement. Only negative is they are crazy expensive! I'm considering not running them daily (I usually use Gixxer 1K knock-offs) just to save them for special occasions.

I live in Europe and will order them from a shop in italy, they are a bit cheaper over here, but still expensive.
The only thing that looks outdated on the busa is the 99 model mirrors...
