Ankita Khanna -the first female owner of the 2021 Hayabusa in India

The new generation Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the most anticipated premium bikes around the world. The faired superbike was recently launched in India at Rs 16.4 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has received a few cosmetic tweaks but is loaded with a plethora of modern gadgetry.

Well, here the news is about the first female owner of the 2021 Hayabusa. Vlogger Beard Bikerr uploaded this video on YouTube where he surprises his wife Ankita with a brand new new superbike. At first, she does not know that the Hayabusa has been purchased for her.

The third-gen Hayabusa comes with a series of updates both in terms of looks as well as its functionality. For starters, it comes with a completely redesigned bodywork with an improved ram air intake which enhances the motorcycle’s aerodynamic properties. It comes with new body panels, flyscreen, rear cowl and fairing-mounted wing mirrors. The font face looks more aggressive thanks to more concise fairing adopted this time. New Hayabusa receives an updated tail section with freshly designed LED taillight. Although the faired sports bike continues to sport bulbous proportions as before, it now comes with chrome-plated twin exhausts that are sleeker and longer.

The Suzuki Hayabusa still uses the 1,340cc, four-cylinder engine capacity, but it has been tweaked for 2021. The changes include lighter pistons, new connecting rods and fuel injectors. That said, both power and torque figures have gone down. It now makes 190hp as compared to the previous-gen’s 197hp, while the peak torque of 150Nm is also slightly lower than before.

Despite this, Suzuki claims that the torque delivery has been revised to be stronger and that this results in the ‘quickest Hayabusa ever’.

Coming to its dynamics, 2021 Hayabusa retains the same twin-spar type aluminum frame which is assisted by the latest Kayaba suspension setup. Stopping duties are handled by disc brakes with Brembo’s Stylema calipers. The supersport tourer offers a saddle height of 800mm and a ground clearance of 120mm. Along with the hardware setup, new Hayabusa comes equipped with a wide array of electronic aids to complement the riding experience. The equipment comprises features such as a 6-axis IMU, hill start assist, multiple riding modes, quick-shifter, traction control, ABS cornering package, wheelie control, launch control to name a few. Other features on offer include a part digital and part analogue instrument console with a TFT display.

The new 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa has been sold out in just two days of its launch. The company had announced with the launch that the deliveries of the bike will start by mid of May. A total of 101 units of the new 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa arrived here and all of these getting sold in just a couple of days is certainly impressive, especially for a bike that is not everyone’s cup of tea.

Now, if you are one of those who wanted to buy the new 2021 model but couldn’t do that, well, no need to worry as this was just the first batch that came to India. The company might bring the next batch of bikes in the coming few weeks. What you can do in the meanwhile is visit the company’s official website for India and in the booking section, enter the details so that you can be notified once the Busa is available back for sale here.
