Suzuki Hayabusa-world's fastest byk

  • The Suzuki Hayabusa (also known as the GSX1300R in some countries) is a hyper sport motorcycle originally introduced by Suzuki in 1999. It has a 1340 cc (81.7 cu in) inline-4 engine and was consistently tested as the fastest production motorcycle in the world before the 2001 detuning agreement referred below. The 2008 model has a MSRP of US$11,999

The motorcycle in stock form was capable of the following performance:

  • 1/4 mile (402 m): 9.85 seconds @ 149.7 mph (241 km/h)
  • 0–60 mph: 2.77 seconds
  • 0–180 mph: 18.9 seconds

Why the Suzuki Hayabusa is the

World's Fastest Motorcycle....?

Although it weighs only 500 pounds, the Suzuki Hayabusa can achieve a speed of 200 miles per hour. The motorcycle's weight contributes to its speed, but the Suzuki has at least a half dozen other features that help to ensure it ability to rapidly cover distance on a highway or racetrack. This article will provide the reader with details on those same features.

The designers of the Suzuki Hayabusa found a way to combine the ignition coil and the spark plug cap. That combination gives the motorcycle an added thrust. The rider feels that thrust following his or her decision to kick the throttle. That thrust causes the front wheel of the motorcycle to actually leave the ground for a brief interval of time.

An experienced rider would no doubt note the unique nature of that thrust. With most motorcy cles, a push of the throttle gives the rider a far different sensation With most motorcycles, a kick of the throttle produces what feels like a "pull." That "pull" seems to be coming from the cycle's wheels.

After feeling that initial thrust, then the rider starts to feel the torque created by the Suzuki Hayabusa's engine. That torque is produced by forces generated by torsion and rotation. Torsion and rotation give the cycle added speed. They can also generate a good deal of heat. The Suzuki Hayabusa has special features that serve to reduce that same heat.

The motorcycle's four-cylinder engine feels the cooling action of a well-chosen liquid. The engine's plated cylinders permit a reduction of the cylinder size. The plated cylinders also help to improve the heat distribution within the engine.

The Suzuki Hayabusa has an aerodynamic design. That reduces the amount of expected drag. According to a basic law of physics, "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." Drag is the reaction to the force that's driving the motorcycle forward. Because of its aerodynamic design, a Suzuki Hayabusa can deliver more than a fast ride. It allows the rider to move forward quickly and smoothly.
