The new-generation Hayabusa comes with an updated engine, which is 1,340cc, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The motor is capable of developing 187 bhp and 150 Nm of max torque, while mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The predecessor was slightly more powerful as it produced 194 bhp and 154 Nm. The two-wheeler manufacturer has employed new connecting rods, fuel injectors, updated cams, revised crankshaft and lighter pistons on the engine that has helped in improving performance. However, the fuel efficiency of the bike has dipped to 18.05 kmpl from 21.5 kmpl.
The instrument cluster on the bike is all-new, but it retains the iconic four analogue clusters. There's a bigger TFT screen right that provides information and configuration details about the bike. The company has loaded the all-new Hayabusa with a bunch of new features such as cruise control, hill hold control system, slope dependent control system, Active Speed limiter combined brake system and motion track brake system, Suzuki Easy Start System, Launch Control System and more. Another highlight of the bike is the inclusion of the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) that enables different riding modes - Active, Basic, and Comfort.
