2022 Suzuki Hayabusa | First Ride Review

The Suzuki Hayabusa has received its first major update since 2008. We put it to the test on the track and the street. (Photos by Kevin Wing)

Rewind the clock to 1999. We were approaching the end of the millennium, and it felt like the science-fiction future was just around the corner. The carefree among us were ready to party like Prince, while worrywarts feared a Y2K-induced doomsday for the world?s computers.

That?s the same year that Suzuki introduced a big, bulbous sportbike called the GSX1300R. Appended to its alphanumeric model designation was an unfamiliar name ? Hayabusa ? the Japanese word for the peregrine falcon, a bird renowned for its ability to exceed 200 mph. Was Suzuki?s 173-horsepower bird of prey capable of the same feat"

Not officially.

The Hayabusa has always had swoopy, aerodynamic bodywork. Designers and engineers spent time in a wind tunnel to massage the new model’s shape.

The top-speed wars of the late ?90s, with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11 defeated by the Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird, and the Blackbird defeated by the Hayabusa, caught the attention of European bureaucrats. To avoid regulation or an outright ban on powerful sportbikes, motorcycle manufacturers voluntarily agreed to a top-speed limit of 186 mph (300 kph).

With its slippery bodywork and long wheelbase, the big ?Busa wasn?t designed for roadracing. But that didn?t stop us ? back in the day I was part of a team that raced two Hayabusas in a WERA 24-hour endurance event at Willow Springs. Meanwhile, it was the hottest bike on the dragstrips.
Things get blurry in a hurry when you twist the Hayabusa’s loud handle.

Fast forward two decades, and I?m riding the third-generation Hayabusa on the track at Utah Motorsports Campus, pushing the limit to the point of being uncomfortable. Was I tempting fate"

Near the end of UMC?s long front straight, my speed approaches 175 mph. Pop up out of the bubble, get on the binders, set up for Turn 1. Adrenaline is flowing, everything?s happening really fast. Is it possible to have a blast and shit yourself at the same time"

Yes, yes it is.

Some assembly required.

Suzuki?s design brief for the new Hayabusa was ?The Refined Beast.? In other words, make the bike better without reinventing the wheel. The Hayabusa?s last major update was back in 2008, when it got a larger engine, a new frame, and other upgrades. Architecture and displacement of the 1,340cc inline four haven?t unchanged, but the engine was thoroughly revised to meet Euro 5 and deliver more low- and midrange power.

Compared to the previous model, peak horsepower and torque are lower ? 188 horsepower at 9,700 rpm (down from 194) and 111 lb-ft at 7,000 rpm (down from 114) ? but there are sizable gains in the heart of the rev range. Suzuki claims the new Hayabusa goes 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, a couple of tenths faster than its predecessor.

The Hayabusa’s 1340cc inline four was thoroughly reworked. New ...
