2006 Suzuki Hayabusa 1300

As they say, it ain’t bragging if it’s true. So when we claim that the Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R is the fastest production bike on the planet, we’re merely stating the facts. It is, pure and simple, an engineering masterpiece that turns advanced technology and aerodynamic design into unmatched performance. But that’s not all, in addition to the incredible performance you get from the Hayabusa, you also get an extra large serving of style. The sleek, long, low look of the Hayabusa is unique in the motorcycling world and is sure to turn heads wherever you choose to ride.

The Hayabusa’s engine performance is incredible, offering awesome acceleration the instant you twist the throttle, providing performance you have to experience to truly appreciate. Its secret? Nothing short of Suzuki’s most sophisticated technology. Including digital electronic fuel injection for crisp, instantaneous throttle response. And a unique version of Suzuki Ram Air DirectTM (SRAD) induction, with pressurized air ducted into a large-capacity airbox and forced into the engine through straight, downdraft intake tracts.
That kind of performance demands world-class handling, and the Hayabusa delivers. Its solid chassis was developed using the latest lessons learned on the race track. And with fully adjustable, titanium-nitride/coated 43mm inverted front forks and a state-of-the-art rear suspension system, it offers precise responsiveness in tight corners and solid performance in sweeping turns - matched by a plush ride on the highway.

The 2006 Hayabusa GSX1300R. Experience its performance and you’ll know why it’s known as the ultimate sport machine.

Previous post is correct - The clip is of a GSXR 1000.
To the guys who’s girlfriend bought him one:
As far as this being a suitable first bike for people who have never ridden before - not unless you have the kind of self control and attentiveness to be able to use the throttle judiciously and keep a constant watch on all of the traffic and road hazards around you. For a 1300cc sports-tourer it’s a forgiving bike, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy or safe in the hands of a novice...
If you don’t know what you’re doing and you mix it in traffic you’ll probably end up in hospital or the morgue. Do some training ASAP.

Watching that video I think that was recorded on the Pellissippi Parkway in Knoxville TN. I drive that almost every day. Correct me if I’m wrong.

I have had my busa to 170 in 5th gear and the didn’t strain at all. I still had a lot more throttle.

do a search for motorcycle safety foundation to find a course near to you. I tried posting the link but it keeps truncating the URL.

I have a 2006 Hayabusa and I love it. As for it being your first bike you should take a Basic Rider Course (). This will at least get you used to how to ride a motorcycle if you have never been on one before. One of the things I stress to my students is to keep a low wrist on the throttle. This will stop you from giving it too much gas. I would take it out to a parking lot first then on some emply roads and then move to riding in light traffic. This will help build your confidence with the bike. I use my to commute to work everyday and I ride approximately 80 miles per day. This bike is really comfortable on rides that are even longer. Once you get used to this bike you will not want to ride anything else except maybe the 1500CC Hayabusa that Suzuki is rumored to come out with.

I just bought this bike (well in all honesty my girlfriend surprised me with it) I have never rode a bike before... With taking classes and everything should I be ok riding this bike? She got my name engraved in the gas tank so I really don’t have a choice but to take it... But am I going to die lol or should I be ok with some classes?? I don’t want to get crazy with it just kinda cruise no stunts or going 150 mph

bro, my busa will run 185 out of 4th gear

you are all wrong!!! ive had my 05 hayabusa clocked on radar at 234 mph bone stock!!! other than tre chip

One of my friends have a Busa,and the thing is he is so skinny and weighs 155. When he takes off and really gets on it. Its amazing. He was at the track and was killing every one. He might even weigh less then 155. The only bike that beat him,was a Turbo kaw 1200 . Dont know what he was
boosting but it was sick.I think he had a few mods also. But it was close. They both took off like a FLASH.---------------- ----------------@-@

thats not a hayabusa on the video clip,it’s a gixxer thou,a busa is a lot smoother.

my new hayabusa is the greatest machine ever created. I’d am amazed at the power

it should be mentioned here that before the European agreement crap there was a Hayabusa that could reach 220 mph out of showroom (stock), no modification what so ever, and this created havoc as as there vidoes all over the net of this bike doing a mind blowing 220 mph!!! and this was the catalyst to the European "gentleman’s agreement" Crap.

Hy all
About the top speed of a bike:
We use what the Motorcycles’s companies give to us.

They give the top speed on private’s track Or on Highway......

Some of them gave nothing .. No horse power, no torques ETC ...

So we use informations on magazines .

Sorry if sometimes the SPECs are wrong ...We try are best to give to you free informations about all of this bikes .

Thx all.

A truthfully masterpiece of engineering. The best ever.

Actually, only the 2001 and up are limited, the ’99 and ’00 models were before the European agreement crap and top out around 195 (stock).

Yeh dude, your specs are so wrong.... the comment b4 mine is 100% correct

The top speed of a Hayabusa is Limited to 189mph. It’s dry weight is around 490lbs. Please adjust your specs.
