||GSX1300R, "Busa", "Bus"
||1999 - present
The Suzuki Hayabusa (also known as the GSX1300R in some countries) is
a hyper sport< motorcycle
originally introduced by Suzuki in 1999. It has a
1340 cc (81.7 cu in) inline-4 engine and was consistently tested as the fastest
production motorcycle in the world before
the 2001 detuning agreement referred below.
 The 2008
model has a MSRP of US$11,999.
The name Hayabusa translates directly from the Japanese as Peregrine Falcon, the bird commonly
attributed of achieving speeds of over 200 mph (322 km/h) — and predator of (perhaps not
coincidently) the common blackbird. The name is a
subtle reference to Honda's competing Hawk models. When introduced in 1999, it overtook
the Honda CBR1100XX Super
Blackbird as the fastest production motorcycle. The first generation of the Hayabusa was
called the GSX1300R and was powered by a 1299 cc
(79.2 cu in) inline-4
liquid-cooled engine. It remained relatively unchanged up through the 2007 model year.
The motorcycle in stock form was capable of the following performance:
- 1/4 mile (402 m): 10.02 seconds @ 143.7 mph (231 km/h)
- 60–80 mph: 3.13 seconds
- 80–100 mph: 3.31 seconds
- Top speed: 189.6 mph (305 km/h)
- Power: 156.1 hp (116.4 kW) @ 9,500 rpm (rear wheel)
Competition in the hyper sport bike segment increased with the release of motorcycles
like the BMW
Ninja ZX-12R, and Kawasaki
Ninja ZX-14. This increased competition led to Suzuki heavily revising the GSX1300R for the
2008 model year. Suzuki has dropped the GSX1300R designation in some countries and simply called the motorcycle the Hayabusa. The engine size was increased to 1340 cc (81.7 cu in) with the compression ratio increasing to 12.5:1. The revised engine has a claimed 12% increase in power to 194 hp (145 kW).
Fuel is now fed through a pair of new 44 mm (1.7 in) Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) throttle
bodies. The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS), a technology introduced on the GSX-R line of motorcycles,
provides three options of power delivery for a range of touring to wide open high performance. Some of the
more notable features include a new 4-2-1-2 exhaust system meets Euro 3 and Tier 2 emission
regulations, a slipper clutch, and redesigned bodywork.
The motorcycle in stock form is capable of the following performance:
- 1/4 mile (402 m): 9.75 seconds @ 149.7 mph (241 km/h)
- 0–60 mph: 2.60 seconds
- 0–180 mph: 15.9 seconds
- Top speed: 186 mph (299 km/h)electronically restricted

2005 GSX1300R "Hayabusa"
After its introduction, the major Japanese motorcycle manufacturers realized that the power and speed wars among flagship sport bikes would not end and would eventually lead to increased
government regulation. For the model years 2001 to current, a timing retard was added in
6th gear, as well as an earlier rev limiter (10200 RPM V.S. 11000 RPM). This limited the top speed
from the 1999/2000 model's 198 mph (319 km/h) to a new maximum of 186 mph (299 km/h).
From its debut in 1999 to June 2007 over 100,000 Hayabusas were sold worldwide. In the United States during the year 2005 over
10,000 units were sold.
For 2006 in the US sales of the Hayabusa were twice that of the Kawasaki ZX-14, which was being released
that year.  And again for the year over
10,000 units were sold in the US.
Overall, sales in the US have increased year after year since its release in 1999 until 2006 and went from just a few thousand units in 1999 to over 10,000 in 2006. Worldwide yearly sales statistics are not known.
