Suzuki enthusiasts and motorcycle aficionados are in for a treat as the highly-anticipated Suzuki Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition has officially hit dealership floors. The commemorative edition pays homage to a quarter-century of an icon, marking 25 years since the groundbreaking first-generation Hayabusa took the motorcycle world by storm in 1999. With a striking appearance and a host of premium features, this limited-edition model is set to make a lasting impression.
The Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition boasts a head-turning color scheme in glass blaze orange and glass sparkle black. These hues complement the sleek and aerodynamic silhouette of this iconic hyperbike. Adding to its unique identity, the special anniversary logo is prominently displayed on the fuel tank and laser-etched onto the twin exhaust mufflers. Gold-anodized brake disc carriers and drive chain adjusters further enhance its allure, while raised Suzuki lettering on the fuel tank and new gloss black trim complete the captivating design.
Power and Performance
Underneath its bold exterior, this special edition Hayabusa is powered by the same torque-rich 1340cc inline four-cylinder engine as the current third-generation Hayabusa. This powerhouse delivers more cumulative power and torque than any of its predecessors. Notably, the 2021 redesign includes new pistons, conrods, crankshaft, and camshaft, making this Hayabusa the quickest-launching model to date.
The Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition is equipped with a comprehensive suite of electronic features to enhance rider control and safety. These include three launch control settings, 10 traction control modes, and three power modes. The motorcycle also features lean-angle sensitive ABS, three levels of engine brake settings, cruise control, hill hold, low RPM assist, and an easy-start function.
Legacy of Speed
Launched in 1999, the original Hayabusa left the motorcycling world awestruck and paved the way for the hypersport category. Derived from the Japanese name for the Peregrine falcon, famous for its blackbird-hunting prowess, the Hayabusa quickly became known for its unmatched performance, distinctive silhouette, and cult following. The second-generation Hayabusa in 2008 increased both capacity and power, and a mid-term update in 2013 introduced Brembo monobloc calipers and ABS. The third generation, launched in 2021 after selling over 200,000 units worldwide, continued to push the boundaries of speed and innovation.
The Suzuki Hayabusa 25th Anniversary Edition is available now at dealerships, with an on-the-road (OTR) price of £18,599.
