Taking aim squarely at Honda, Suzuki gave the new model its name — which is Japanese for peregrine falcon – for two reasons; one, because the peregrine falcon is the fastest bird on the planet; and two, because it happens to feed on blackbirds. True to its name, the Hayabusa ate Honda for breakfast, not only becoming the world’s fastest production motorcycle upon its release but doing so by a margin of a 10 mph.

The massive inline-four put down 175 hp and more than 100 ft-lbs of torque. With a dry weight of around 480lbs, that translated to 10.3-second standing quarter-mile runs, a 0-60 mph time of just under three seconds, and a top speed of up to 194 mph right out of the box. The powertrain and frame were backed up by 43mm inverted forks with titanium-nitride-coated inner fork tubes, a mono-shock, steering damper, and twin 320mm discs pinched by six-pot calipers.

After the Hayabusa’s release, there were talks of Europe banning the increasingly out-of-control-fast machines coming from the East. Things had reached a boiling point, and the Hayabusa was what turned up the dial on the proverbial stove. Not wanting to lose a key market, a “gentlemen’s agreement” was reached between manufacturers, capping top speeds (or at least speedo-readings) to 300km/h (or 186.4mph).

This example is VIN: JS1GW71A8X2101809. It came to Iconic as an import.

The odometer shows 17,978 kilometers (11,171 miles).
