So what do you do when you have had the fastest production motorcycle in the world? Well if you are suzuki motorcycles. Not much. The new 2013 suzuki hayabusa is basically unchanged for the new model year. The only new bits to the worlds greatest superbike is ABS brakes. Not that we are complaining. The one area where the hayabusa could use some improvement is in the braking department. It takes alot to bring a rocketship down to earth and the new Brembo monobloc brakes with ABS can get the job done nicely. I guess this gives suzuki a reason for upping the price on the new model by 800 bones. You would think that they would get a bulk discount for making so many of the same motorcycle all these years.
Still the hayabusa is a legend. The motorcycle is world known as the king. Why would suzuki want to mess with perfection. The sales for the bike are still solid. The motorcycle itself is practically sex on wheels. But like any girl friend, after a few years you do start to see a few flaws in the ride. You get a little too comfortable with her. Thats when you start getting those roaming eyes. Wishing she had a few motorcycle cc’s on top. Maybe she needs some new bodywork. lose some of that extra weight she has been putting on over the years. A little more style. You know it would be nice if she got off the line a little faster maybe with out spinning out so much. Yeah new girlfriend is just what we need. Hopefully suzuki is listening . A hayabusa 1500 sounds about right. maybe a new traction control system. Maybe the can shave a few pounds off the bike and increase the power to weight ratio.
Suzuki is coming up on the 15 year anniversary of the hayabusa. Hopefully they have something in store for us out here. If you were in charge over at suzuki what would you like to see in the 2014 model year motorcycle. You never know suzuki might just be reading this story.
