Hayabusa Z Boasts a Yoshimura Silencer and Exquisite Color Scheme

Suzuki unveils another special edition treat for the riders who want to stand from the crowd. The new Hamamatsu machine is the Hayabusa Z, a bike which is delivered in a special livery and which also comes with an eye candy, ear-pleasing add-ons. Like almost always, these are the only things which make the special edition different, so if you are looking for heftier performance upgrades, you’ll have to get in touch with your local tuning shop.

However, this edition of the 2015 GSX-1300R looks dreamy. The Hamamatsu graphics department has done a top-notch job and delivered a staggering Pearl Vigor Blue – Metallic Mystic Silver livery, with a crossfade effect on the tank and the classic Hayabusa golden logo in its rightful place on the fairings. The radial Brembo calipers have also gotten a light gold trim to match the logo, and the contrast with the blue front fender and the matte black forks makes everything look even classier.Yoshimura R-77J exhaust adds a bit to the performance figures
On the tech side, the only upgrade for the Hayabusa Z is the addition of a Yoshimura R-77J silencer which adds to the tonal character and styling, while also improving the performance figures a bit. Of course, the Yoshimura can also shaves off some weight too, and this will add a bit to the sprinting power. The shiny metal can matches the silver trim on the bike, but the carbon fiber end cap introduces just the right amount of custom sport tuning DNA.

The Hayabusa Z is brought to life by the same 1,340cc in-line 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 197 hp at 10,200 revs and has 154 Nm (113.5 lb-ft) of torque already available at 6,200 rpm. ABS is standard for the Hayabusa Z, as well as the latest generation slipper clutch, and the three-way driver mode selector.

Basically, you’re getting a stock Busa with an exquisite livery and a high-performance exhaust, but even so, the Hayabusa Z is a rare treat. So far we only know it will sell in India and UK, with the British price tag reading £11,799, which today is $17,975 or €15,885.
