Just a few days after Suzuki teased the Hayabusa update, now it’s official! Suzuki commemorated this official reveal with a robust, 22-minute long video breaking down the new 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa features.
Check out the video down below.
Well, the new Hayabusa has got a slew of updates, with its general design being at the upfront. Suzuki states that this updated Hayabusa will have “one of the best drag coefficients” of any motorcycle, which is fantastic. If that is true, that means that you can expect the new Hayabusa to be a much more stable and comfortable bike in the long run. And the styling looks classy as hell!
First of all, the aluminum frame of the new Hayabusa is mostly unchanged. The only change is the lighter sub-frame and the higher weight carrying capacity overall.
When talking about the weight, the new Hayabusa will weigh 582 lbs (264 kg), which is 4 lbs (2 kg) less than the previous Hayabusa model.
The 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa will have improved front brakes in the form of Brembo Stylema four-piston calipers, along with the 320mm brake discs.
Sadly, Suzuki didn’t bother to increase the power of this Hayabusa iteration. It will produce 188 horsepower and 111 lb-ft of torque – which is actually 6 horsepower and 3 lb-ft of torque less than the previous iteration. To compensate, Suzuki added a bi-directional quick-shifter along with the assist clutch for its six-speed transmission system.
Even though the new Hayabusa will produce less horsepower, Suzuki vouches for an increased acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds – which is 0.2 seconds less than the last iteration.
The top speed of the 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa will remain electronically limited to 185 mph (298 km/h).
Suzuki will introduce the Intelligent Ride System to the new Hayabusa. It will provide a six-axis IMU with three preset ride settings and three customizable options.
We also know the price of the 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa! It will be $4,000 (€3320/£2912) more expensive than the last iteration – more specifically $18,599 (€15,436/£13,540).
Now, we just need to wait to hear from Suzuki when this new Hayabusa will be available. We will make sure to update you with this information soon!
