As expected, the Japanese company didn’t make any major changes on the power of the Hayabusa. However, they made changes on the graphics and the color of the bike. The new GSX 1340 R is available in new colors including Nebular Black with red trim and Pearl Mirage White with gold trim. The 1340cc DOHC inline-four still produces 197hp and 155Nm of torque, but the company updated the 6-speed transmission to make gear changes more comfortable and easy.
The 2011 Suzuki Hayabusa also features the company’s Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) cylinder plating that improves heat transfer, durability and ring seal.
