With the new year vibes coming to an end, Suzuki has unleashed it’s most anticipated motorcycle ‘Hayabusa’ today. Suzuki Hayabusa, also known as ‘Dhoom Bike’ finally is on papers and is more than just an upgrade. Starting from the aesthetics to features and in the end the powertrain, everything has undergone rigorous changes.
Seems Suzuki is not so good in keeping secrets. Well, the official trailer floated on the internet a while back with the basic information of what we can expect from the new Busa. So, here is what Busa is like!
2021 Suzuki Hayabusa | The Dragster
Suzuki has updated their website with all the necessary details about its supersport touring motorcycle. And the new Busa does look a lot futuristic and keeps its originality intact.
Can someone miss the Busa’s unique silhouette? Nah.
Speaking of the front is where anyone can make out that it is *the* Busa.
- The new 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa gets all-new LED headlights with twin-pod setup. The upper portion is a reflective LED and the bottom half is a Projector with LED.
- The basic design of the Busa’s headlight hasn’t changed since its launch in 1999.
- The headlight sits proudly between the two new LED DRLs and indicators that share the space with the air intake of the engine.
- Like before the rear-view mirrors are mounted on the fairing for the bike.
- At the rear, instead of a single tail light, the new 2021 Busa gets two tail lights also LED.
- Additionally, no one can miss the fat catalytic converter that now makes the bike adhere to strict Euro 5 emission norms.
It is the new instrument cluster that grabs the rider’s attention.
- Talking about which, it remains a 4 pod design, one for fuel, engine temperature, speedometer and tachometer.
- What’s new is the new LCD screen between the speedo and RPM readout.
- Also, USP of the 2021 Busa is the new Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS)
- This screen exhibits all the information about the SIRS. To name a few, it displays:
- Power Modes
- Anti-Lift Control
- Engine Braking Control
- Bi-directional Quick shifter
- Motion Trach Traction System
- A new feature integrated into the electricals of the motorcycle is the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-a).
- Wherein, the rider can choose from different basic riding modes also and can customise up to 3 modes.
Let’s Talk Electronics
Suzuki Hayabusa has been one of the most powerful and brawny production motorcycles for a while. Hence, riding one of these for a noobie is like sitting on a cart of death. Even experienced riders face difficulties at times to control the bike.
But not to worry, to learn the motorcycle, Suzuki has loaded the 2021 Busa with many gizmos and rider aids. These include:
- Launch Control System
- Emergency Stop Signal
- Slope dependent Control System
- Motion Track Braking System
- Active Speed Limiter
- Cruise Control System
- Hill Hold Control
What the new Suzuki Hayabusa packs under the fuel tank?
On paper, the motorcycle possesses the same 1.3litre 4 cylinder engine and a 6-speed gearbox. I’m afraid that there is no option of a DCT as of now. Sadly, Suzuki has not yet revealed the power and torque figures.
Let us know in the comment section, what do you think of this new generation Suzuki Hayabusa?
