In 2016, Suzuki launched the GSX 1300R, famed as the fastest production motorcycle, at the time of its first release back in 1999, with a top speed of 303 to 312 kph (188 to 194 mph).
After countless engineering refinements of the original design, in 2014, the Hayabusa received Brembo monoblock high-performance calipers and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), which combined with the fun and sporty ride condition at any speed and the aerodynamical all-round bodywork, the bike raised the bar high for rivals.
The 2016 Suzuki GSX 1300R featured a lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminum frame that minimized weight and maintained high torsional strength, while the bridge aluminum swingarm had a cross-sectional shape designed for more rigidity.
In the power department, the Hayabusa featured a 1,340cc four-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine with lightweight aluminum pistons, lightweight titanium valves, and iridium spark plugs that provided massive power, torque, and crisp acceleration. With the help of a six-speed manual transmission, the bike developed a power output of 196 hp at 9,800 rpm and 154 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque at 7,200 rpm.
In addition, the model packed a Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), which allowed the rider to choose between three engine map settings for personal performance preference or riding conditions.
Visually, the Hayabusa packed vertically stacked headlights that improved light intensity and distribution and matched the elegant flow of the bodywork, which offered great wind protection for both normal and tucked-in positions.
