Even if I buy Haya, i have to install restricter kit.

 

130km/h the restrictor cut in. Failure to adhere to limiter results in pain being transmitted to rider body.

 

Continued disregard of limiter results in rider sleeping on the floor that night.

 

Does anyone know of any aftermarket kit to replace or overide????? Preferably one that is light weight and easliy removable. :p

well the restricter will provide physical pain to rider's body, that's good enough what..... poke in the ribs or a little tug at the ear lobe (could even be erotic)...... or if you install a high end one, a tug at the guinness' little yoshi....... now that's more than enough reasons to speed..... the more you speed, the longer the journey......... :D

The Kanji (symbol) on the Hayabusa fairing

 

Finally, confirmation of the meaning of the graphic adorning (Kanji) our favourite bike ! According to a Japanese colleague, the Japanese writing on the fairing is pronounced hayato or hayabusa. Regardless of the pronunciation it means strong and fast.

 

Hayabusa Background

 

Based on many sources I have ascertained the following historical information about the Hayabusa. The name as you may have not heard comes from the Japanese Peregrine falcon. It is one of the few animals which can travel at about 300km per hour (in a dive). The designer apparently came up with the name whilst walking along the beach and seeing this bird. The colour scheme of gold/bronze and silver are similar to those of the falcon its self.

Believe of not - it is said that this falcon often hunts actual Blackbirds which I still think is a PR stunt !

 

Having done further research, the 'Japanese Very Fast Train' which travels at about the same speeds is also called the Hayabusa. I think this was this pre-dates the Suzuki use of the Hayabusa term.

 

*I have recently been informed that the term Hayabusa was also used to name a WWII Japanese aircraft. Designated the KI-43 it was built by the Nakajima conglomerate and was classed a fighter. This was apparently the first use of bird names for aircraft.

 

The Hayabusa was first rumoured to exist during 1998. It was finally launched in Spain on the Catalunya circuit in April 1999. It joins the lists of top speed limit breaking bikes over the years. In fact it is the first production motorcycle to break the 300kph barrier ! The namer of the bike is reported to be Suzuki Product Planning group - Akihiko Muramatsu.

 

Logical Competitors : Kawasaki ZZR-1100 | Honda Blackbird CBR1100XX | BMW K1200 | ZX-12R

 

The Hayabusa is classified as a sports tourer and not a sports bike in the vein of the Fireblade, R1 and the like.

Note that Suzuki promotes the bike as the Ultimate Sports Machine.

Known differences between 1999 2000 2001 2002 models

 

Known differences (summary) :

Bascially there aren't any that you can actually see apart from colour for 99 vs the 00 models.

The different colours can be seen on the brochures page.

Cam tensioner issues on '99 and '00 models.

The rear sub-frame is also different either in welding or be it a metal version applicable worldwide.

The late 2000 and 2001 models are also top speed restricted by the engine management system,

not many will actually find out of course its - 290kph.

Performance is otherwise unchanged.

The Speedo meter on 2001 models only go to 185mph.

Australian Speedo meter reads a top of 280kph with the rest of the lines unumbered.

Top Speed of 2001 model onwards is 290kph or 180mph.

2001 idle adjuster is now under the tank.

2001 'vent' on tail fairing on the right is flat unlike the left which is curved in.

2001 models appear to have a oil capacity of 3100ml.

2001 models have a steel sub-frame coloured black in the US.*

2001 Canadian models only have 20 litre tanks.

2001 models have a Suzuki sticker over the rear tail lights.

2002 Models have polished metal joining the mufflers as opposed to the matt black 99-01 models.

2002 ECUs are reprogrammed and cannot be over come by the TRE ?

2002 also have radiators in an unpainted metal ?

2002 have inset front wheel hubs.

Thanks Gixxer1, do you think they sell side box for Honda V-tec S4?

 

yes, there are many S4 who put side panniers. There's one Ver S at CMPB tower B's carpark. And seen one blue lady Super4 rider with side panniers too.
