Good article about a great bike. I read expecting a mention of the ZX in comparison and frankly I was relieved it didn't happen.
"Still the head honcho" said it all :)

SUZUKI HAYABUSA - The last mohican
brilliant article

"Garbage One: “It’s too heavy and fat.” :p
Your mother is too heavy and fat. So is your girlfriend. The Hayabusa is exactly the weight it should be, which is 266kg wet. If it was any lighter it wouldn’t do what it does so well and maintain its demonic stability at insane speeds"
"To my mind, the Gen II, the last of the old school rock’n’rollers, is a staggeringly brilliant motorcycle at a price that beggars belief"
“Holy Mother of God!” I remembered breathing, as that impossible engine started frying its biscuits"

If it was any lighter comment is just incorrect. If He had ridden mine or Roadtoad's ultra light street going birds.
Ram Jam is just as stable as it was in Fat weight ;)

He sure is unfamiliar with how good a lightened Busa can be , as c10 says . Rock steady at some tested silly speeds , and just all round easier , so less tiresome to punt on any road you ride , in short .
He is however , a pretty good motorcycle journo , and an Aussie , who seems to truly luv Busa .... I guess I could give him a ride on L2 if he signs up for enough insurance coverage !!

That exhaust drawing doesn't show anything relating to a turbo...that's disappointing. Supercharged like the H2 maybe? How awesome would that be? 0 to 100 in 2.8 anyone?

I really hope Suzuki gets their head out of their arse and makes something dominating. I'm leaning towards a big bore vs turbo or supercharged.

Supercharged would be cool though.....

We need to lure a Suzuki rep to this forum, then we could pick their brains...

Everything I've read is saying they'll be going to 1430 anyway but super/turbo charging is always an argument. I vote super! Turbo is cool but can be done aftermarket already, factory supercharged would be awesome

Kawasaki kicked open the door on supercharging, maybe Suzuki will go that route..a supercharged big bore Hayabusa would be something.....

"The 2014 Suzuki Hayabusa is a big bore speed machine that provides comfort and some surprising agility considering its length and weight.
Big-bore power is something that seems to never want to die. That's alright by us, considering sometimes we are simply looking for one piece of straight road to let loose on."

"A full review of the 2013 Suzuki Hayabusa
The 2013 Suzuki Hayabusa has been updated with new Brembo Monobloc radial brake calipers and Anti-Lock Brakes. Can such a minor change keep it relevant in 2013?
A day of riding the 2013 Suzuki Hayabusa on a well-planned route around Palomar Mountain? Sign me up. The Hayabusa is a very interesting motorcycle, unlike almost anything else on the market and, with the changes made for the 2013 bike, it promised to be an awesome day. We got to ride brief stints on the freeway, long open stretches of highway, beautiful fast sweepers, and tight mountain roades and all with one final ingredient: a police escort to block off sections of road for us so we could set up awesome photo opportunities. A good day indeed."

Story: Donovan Fourie
Pics: Meghan McCabe and Suzuki Media
There were rumours spreading through the motorcycle world that the Suzuki Hayabusa was to be discontinued. This of course caused quite a stir among its legions of fans that mourned this eventuality. And it makes sense – the Hayabusa has had one helluva life and one helluva history.
It was first unveiled in 1999 when the entire world went: “Eeeewwwwww, what the hell is that?”
