More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed a machine so unique that it instantly attracted a devoted following around the world. Like
its namesake, the Japanese peregrine falcon, Hayabusa is famed for cutting through the air with incredible agility and performance. It
combines massive thrust, unmatched maneuverability, and a silky smooth ride on city streets or the open road. Beneath its windswept
design beats the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa engine. The resonating feel of pure power evokes an attitude of bold authority from both
machine and rider.
Through countless engineering refinements of the original design, the Hayabusa spirit has endured. Its incomparable performance
delivers a fun and sporty ride at any speed, setting the bar high for rivals and defining the “Ultimate Sport Bike.” The radically original
yet timeless styling also reflects the spirit of the person who owns a Hayabusa.

and addition of ABS
Suzuki engineered the Hayabusa to perform like a heavyweight boxer—muscular yet surprisingly
agile. While riders rarely need to call on its full punch off the line, the overabundant power and
fleet-footed performance inspire confidence in everyday riding. That restrained yet refined energy
is the presence that turns heads when a Hayabusa and rider pass.
Hayabusa is equally at home on the highway or city streets. The low center of gravity that lets it
conquer winding roads also makes Hayabusa a nimble urban predator.
Plus, the Hayabusa's high-quality finish and attention to detail betray unequalled pride of
craftsmanship that will become your pride of ownership. The bold design also gives it a unique
aura and formidable presence not found in other bikes.
The 2013 model comes newly equipped with Brembo Monobloc high-performance calipers and an
Antilock Brake System. These features are sure to appeal to lone riders cruising the highway as
well as touring couples.
Slice through the wind
The Hayabusa design perfectly merges motorcycle and
rider. Carefully sculpted bodywork tames the wind to
ma x imize the more-than-ample power of the
Hayabusa engine. Extensive wind tunnel testing with a
rider onboard helped to find the ultimate shape for
high-speed riding. The radical aerodynamic styling
and smoother body work not only gives the
Hayabusa its unique look but also protects the
rider from the wind and improves fuel efficiency.
Legendary inline-four
power plant
The Hayabusa's muscular four-cylinder engine
delivers a broader wave of torque for effortless
acceleration. Its advanced design boasts
liquid-cooling, ram-air downdraft induction with
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle bodies,
fuel injection employing twin injectors controlled
by a 32-bit ECU, and hollow double overhead
cams operating four valves per cylinder.
Forged pistons and PVD-coated rings
Forged three-ring aluminum-alloy slipper pistons provide superior strength. The
oil control ring on each piston is electro-plated with a chrome-nitride coating
applied in a vacuum chamber using a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) system.
The chrome nitride PVD coating is harder and smoother than conventional
chrome plating, reducing friction while improving cylinder sealing. The upper
piston ring also features an L-shaped cross section, with combustion pressure
pushing the ring tighter against the cylinder wall to further reduce blowby and
increase the force actually pushing the piston down.
Selectable engine mapping – Suzuki Drive Mode Selector
The Hayabusa features the unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS)
system, which allows the rider to select one of three engine control maps.
The system allows the rider to select a different map to suit personal
preferences in various riding conditions, such as choosing one map for
highway cruising and another map for tighter roads.
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve
The Hayabusa engine is fitted with tapered, 44mm double-barrel Suzuki
Dual Throt tle Val ve (SDT V) throt tle bodies . Unlike conventional
fuel-injection systems, the SDTV system has two butterfly valves in each
throttle body barrel. The rider controls the primary valve via a throttle grip,
and the engine management system automatically controls the secondary
valve, opening it incrementally to maintain optimum intake charge velocity
based on engine rpm, gear position and primary valve opening. This
precise, carefully controlled system improves combustion efficiency and
makes throttle response feel more natural to the rider.
Mean city streets by night or winding country roads under temperate skies,
the Hayabusa draws attention wherever you go. Even at rest, the rebellious styling
and powerful look can stop people in the street and attract envious stares.

Suzuki designers carefully considered every aspect of the bold Hayabusa look—from standout features like lights
to the many mechanical details subtly hidden from view.
Hayabusa owners often remark that nothing compares to the awe inspired by a Hayabusa. When parked, the bike
invites visitors and when riding through the city it invites envious onlookers. And whenever Hayabusa riders
encounter each other they often discover instant camaraderie.
Hayabusa derives its legendary ride not just from a perspective of power, handling and aerodynamics. Every aspect of the design—from a top-tier chassis to braking system—all combine to
deliver unparalleled performance.
Riders have sometimes described the Hayabusa as a well-trained wild animal. And like a thoroughbred, the bike responds to even the most nuanced input from the rider. The movement of
the suspension is not stiff; instead the bike quietly absorbs shock like a luxury sedan. Likewise, the advanced braking system confidently reduces the speed of the Hayabusa's large
chassis. The braking system of the 2013 model offers even more refinements to deliver greater confidence for the rider.
Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers
Lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together calipers, the Hayabusa's
top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers deliver better feedback
to the rider. The piston diameters were enlarged from 32-30mm to 32-32mm. Larger pistons
help apply greater force to the brake disc, which results in increased initial bite and a
more controlled feeling.
Inverted cartridge front forks
Lightweight, high-performance ABS
A new, standard equipment Antilock Brake System (ABS) unit features a lightweight, compact
design. The ABS enhances brake performance by helping prevent, to a certain extent, wheel
locking due to changes in road conditions or excessive braking, by matching stopping
power to available traction.
Note : The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to
reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.
Bridgestone tires and rear brake
Convenient features
Note : The prop stay shown is an optional part.
KYB inverted cartridge forks feature a Diamond-Like
Carbon (DLC)coating surface treatment on the 43mm
stanchion tubes to reduce friction and increase reaction
to small surface irregularities. The forks provide front
wheel travel of 120mm. Spring preload, compression
damping and rebound damping are fully adjustable.
Hayabusa is equipped with the Bridgestone BT-015, which
is specially developed for the motorcycle. The tire's profile
and compound were developed through a variety of
testing to achieve a high level of stability and handling. A
single-piston, pin-slide TOKICO rear brake caliper works
with newly equipped ABS. The rear disc is 260mm in
diameter and 5.5mm thick.
A variety of convenient features complement the Hayabusa's
unmatched performance. The fuel tank lifts for maintenance
simply by removing the seat and two bolts. A storage
compartment under the rear seat provides space to hold tools
and owners manuals. Two hooks under the rear seat secure
helmets, while four luggage hooks help to secure items to the
seat. The 5-way adjustable brake lever and 4-way adjustable
clutch lever both allow fine-tuning to the rider's taste.
At the turn of the 20th century Suzuki surprised the world by introducing the Hayabusa. Over the last decade, the motorcycle has evolved while staying true to its concept-the pinnacle of high-performance
motorcycles. Its sensational power, speed, smooth ride and overwhelming presence continue to fascinate owners and onlookers alike. The addition of a new ABS and Brembo Monobloc front brake calipers takes
the Hayabusa and rider to new heights. We invite you to become an owner of the Hayabusa key, and feel the beat of Hayabusa as you fly through the streets. Join us and become a proud owner. May your heart
beat in unison to the Hayabusa. Because the Hayabusa is, and always will be, the ultimate sport bike.

Chief Engineer
Test Rider
Since the birth of the first Hayabusa in 1999 until 2003 I was
involved in engine design. Then I was honored to become chief
engineer for the overall project. First let me say that you cannot
talk about this motorcycle without mentioning its aerodynamics.
Even when we were refining the design for the second generation, the team placed top priority on
improving its already legendary aerodynamic efficiency. The Hayabusa really stands above and apart
from other ultimate sport bikes, and its consummate form follows the function of the bike’s
aerodynamic characteristics. Plus, its optimal balance and motion control translate into the ease of
handling that you experience when actually riding the bike. With the addition of a new ABS and
Brembo Monobloc calipers, the brakes will increase your confidence in control of the bike. Thanks
to the strong support of owners from around the world, this bike has even more room to run, and we
intend to evolve its performance to ensure it is loved by riders in the future.
I have been the test rider of the Hayabusa since the very first
model. I can say the Hayabusa's engine feels so overwhelmingly
powerful and finely tuned that there is nothing like it. After riding
the Hayabusa, you won't want to ride another motorcycle. Just
experience once the Hayabusa's powerful acceleration from low to high speeds and its nimble
handling and you too will be hooked. I encourage you to give it a try. I also ride the Hayabusa outside
of work. I enjoy the strong camaraderie among owners, and when encountering a fellow Hayabusa
rider we typically greet one another. I hope you become an owner and can enjoy taking part in this
great biking life.
