In the 1990s, motorcycle manufacturers competed in a technological arms race, with each brand vying for a leg up in what became known as the “speed wars”. This prompted a slew of new models with ever-increasing top speeds in a bid to earn the title of world’s fastest production motorcycle. Kawasaki’s ZX-11 reigned supreme for a period, until Honda stepped in with its CBR1100XX, aka Blackbird. Looking to dethrone the CBR, Suzuki began developing a new big-bore multi-cylinder model. Just before the turn of the millennium, Suzuki released the GSX-1300R, or Hayabusa (隼).

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 480 lbs, 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.

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).

The seller of this example (VIN: JS1GW71A722103382) is the third owner. “I had spoken to the original owner of the bike when it was for sale several years ago but another person bought it and I regretted not buying it because it was so clean and high quality. The second owner had to sell it because of a automotive accident and I purchased it in 2018. It’s a wonderful bike but I don’t ride it much, I have 15 other bikes.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 300 miles. The odometer shows 10,292 miles.

Marchesini wheels.

Brembo front and rear brakes – note that the rear brakes have a Brembo dual caliper system.

Cosmetic Blemishes:

The sale includes a new-in-box front fairing.

The seller states that the bike has a fresh oil/filter change, coolant flush, brake/clutch fluid flush, new spark plugs, and a new battery. He adds that the tank is rust free and there are no known mechanical issues – “the bike runs and rides great!”
