New Suzuki Hayabusa in South Africa – A R329,000 superbike

The first new Suzuki Hayabusa has landed in South Africa, at a starting price of R329,000.

However, customers wanting one of these new superbikes will need to wait – as the first 42 units that are due to arrive in the country between October and November are already sold out.

This first unit – finished in pearl white – is going on tour to Suzuki dealerships across the country, with the trip starting in KwaZulu-Natal at the end of August.

What you need to know

The Suzuki Hayabusa features a 1,340cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four-cylinder, petrol engine.

The motor is bolted to a lightweight aluminium frame and paired with a bi-directional, six-speed quick-shift transmission.

This allows a top speed of 299km/h, while the motorcycle weighs in at 264kg.

In addition, all-new aerodynamics on the Hayabusa give it the best drag coefficient of any motorcycle to date, said Suzuki.

It also features a new KYB suspension package with accompanying Brembo Stylema brakes, enabling ABS braking on this two-wheeler.

New seven-spoke wheels help give the Hayabusa a 50/50 weight distribution, too, while specially-designed Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres are fitted as standard.

Notable additions in this model include a new LCD gauge cluster, all-round LED lights with integrated turn signals, a drive mode selector, a lift control system, and the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS).

SIRS enables launch control, an active speed limiter, cruise control, emergency stop lights, a slope control system, and a hill hold control system.

The Suzuki Hayabusa then measures 2,180mm long, 1,165mm tall, and 735mm wide – with a seat height of 800mm.


The South African starting price for the Suzuki Hayabusa is R329,000.

Buyers have a choice of three exterior colours – Glass Sparkle Black, Metallic Matte Sword Silver, and Pearl Brilliant White.
