The MY2021 Suzuki Hayabusa was launched in India on 26 April, and the first lot has already been sold out in two days.
All 101 units from the first batch marked for India are now accounted for. The buyers of the first batch also received a complimentary rear seat cowl. The second batch is likely to arrive in the country soon, although the pandemic might play spoilsport.
The new model was launched at a price point of Rs 16.40 lakh (ex-showroom, India), thereby making it about Rs 2.65 lakh more expensive than the erstwhile model. For the price differential, you get a host of uprated cycleparts such as full-LED lighting, an LCD screen, and a revised design.
The 1340 cc inline-four engine has been retained, albeit with upgrades to meet the newer and stringent emission norms. Linked to a six-speed cassette-type transmission, the motor now belches out 187.7 bhp of peak power and 150 Nm of peak torque.
It competes with the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX in the Indian market.
