2003 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa

Summary:

Fast, Fast, VERY FAST!

Faults:

Battery died at 3,100 miles.

General Comments:

A very, very quick bike!

It is my second Hayabusa and I love the size and feel of the bike.

I have owned a Fireblade, R1, GSXR 1000 and ZX12R. The Hayabusa makes the 1000 cc sportsbikes look like toys.

The seating position on the Busa is much better than the 12R in that the seat is lower and it make the bike feel more balanced. The 12R was top heavy with the high seating.

2004 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa

Summary:

Comfy, and very very fast now

Faults:

Nothing, but the engine has been rebuilt due to the turbo conversion work.

General Comments:

As a standard bikem the Hayabusa is quick, but not untouchable. However, bolt on a Velocity turbo kit and say bye bye to even the Starship Enterprise (and your license if you're not wary!).

Once setup it will run 260 on low boost, and 320 on higher boost, or 400 on silly boost for demo runs, that's with it weighing in at around 230kg - you do the performance maths!
