Birth of the Suzuki GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa in 1999, the ultimate predator
The name Hayabusa is the Japanese translation for Peregrine Falcon, the bird that is capable of speeds in excess of 320km / h is the natural predator (perhaps not coincidentally) the blackbird (attributed to several species of birds name), a clear reference to the Honda CBR 1100XX SUPERBLACKBIRD as when it was launched in the market in 1999, took the title of fastest motorcycle in the world from the hands of Honda.
The first generation of the Hayabusa, called Suzuki GSX-R 1300, was powered by a 1,299 cc engine with 4 cylinders in line, water cooled. That engine remained virtually unchanged until 2008.
The Suzuki Hayabusa into history with engines of 176 hp and a downward torque curve from 7,000 rpm. If it had been a sharp engine, you could put some hits, but the Suzuki GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa 1999 offered the contrary, a power curve without doubt, really linear, with a pair of over 12 mkg All speed range reached almost 15 mkg at its peak.
The Hayabusa (Suzuki GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa) is a motorcycle regarded as one of the fastest in the world (top speed: 317km / h, adjusted pursuant record by the Guinness Book of 2000 and 2004) and the largest market acceleration in a strictly bike series.
Since its debut in 1999 until June 2007, more than 100,000 units of Hayabusa were sold worldwide. In the United States during the year 2005 more than 10,000 units were sold and in 2006 in the US market sales Hayabusa were in bent to the sales of Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 number, which began to be sold the same year. Again, in 2007 sales totaled 10,000 units Hayabusa model sold only in the United States.
Overall, sales in the US were growing year by year since the launch in 1999-2006 being a few thousand units of more than 10,000 in 2006. No information supplied by global sales Suzuki Motor Corporation itself or by regional resellers in each country of the world.
A unique bike in its class. Enjoy the Suzuki GSX-R 1300 Hayabusa 1999, the largest sporting Suzuki.
