The new edition of Suzuki Hayabusa GP comes out of its cover
– Pays homage to Suzuki’s MotoGP motorcycle
– To be presented at the Autolook Week Torini festival
Suzuki is ready to step down from what is seen as the pinnacle of road racing, the MotoGP world championship. Although this is a disheartening announcement for Suzuki fans, they will be happy to know that the company is stepping out in style. Everything is ready to unveil the new GP edition of its most emblematic motorcycle, the Hayabusa.
The Suzuki Hayabusa GP edition will be unveiled during the Autolook Week Torini festival in Turin which will be held from September 7 to 11, a few days after the conclusion of the MotoGP from San Marino to Misano. Besides this special edition Hayabusa, the Japanese bike manufacturer will also present the RG500 two-stroke and GSX-RR racing bikes.
As the name suggests, the Hayabusa GP comes dressed in the Suzuki Ecstar racing team livery which is much more vibrant and eye-catching than the standard colors. It includes red and yellow accent options with blue and silver base colors being a common thread. While one bears the number ’36’ on the headlight, the other is adorned with ’42’ which are the racing numbers of Joan Mir and Alex Rins respectively. As for the mechanical changes, Suzuki fitted the bike with Akrapovic’s full exhaust system while getting rid of the headlight, mirrors, turn signals and license plate bracket.
Now, it is still unknown whether the production of the Suzuki Hayabusa GP edition will be limited to a few units or if there will be mass production of the bike.
