Suzuki Motorcycle India, the Indian subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, today launched the 2017 Suzuki Hayabusa in new colours. The new colours on offer are – Glass Sparkle Black / Pearl Glacier White (AGT), Pearl Vigor Blue / Glass Sparkle Black (BBD) and Glass Sparkle Black (YVB). To be retailed through Suzuki Big Bike dealerships, the 2017 Suzuki Hayabusa is priced at Rs 13.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
One of the most renowned motorcycle brand across the globe, the Suzuki Hayabusa has cult following among Indian motorcycling enthusiasts as well. Besides extra-ordinary looks, the motorcycle is known for its all-round capabilities.
It was only March 2016, when the company had started assembling the Hayabusa in India via CKD (completely knocked down) units to bring down its cost. And the first ‘made-in-India’ unit was delivered to its owner in Delhi a week ago. More locally-assembled units of the 2017 Suzuki Hayabusa will be delivered soon.
“Since the introduction of the CKD version, the sales have shown a 100% growth, and there is a long waiting period for which the company is working to reduce the delivery time.”, says the company.
Since it’s just a model year change and the new colours have been added to the lineup, there are no mechanical changes made to the 2017 Suzuki Hayabusa. The super bike retains the same 1340cc, four-cylinder in-line engine that is good for 194bhp and 154Nm. Mated to a 6-speed transmission, this bike can achieve a top speed of 300kmph.
