2009 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa - Higher 'Busa

Suzuki's Big-Dog GSX1300R Hayabusa Finally Gets An Update. Bigger, Faster, And Stronger, The Old Dog has Some New Tricks.

Nine years. That's an eternity in sportbike development cycles, but nine years is how long the Hayabusa has remained essentially unchanged since its shocking release in 1999. Back then, carburetors were still in fashion. Honda's 178.5-mph Blackbird was the fastest bike around. And the GSX-R1000 and ZX-14 were no more than doodles on cocktail napkins.

What i'm looking forward to is when more of the new engines drip down to the kit car market ;-)
