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).

This example is VIN: JS1GW71A732105196; engine: W701153650. The seller purchased the bike two months ago from the original owner in Santa Clarita, California. He has decided to let it go to a new home to free up space.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 25 miles. The odometer shows 558 miles.

The seller states, “I’ve taken care of all maintenance and have all the invoices for the parts. Recently replaced/replenished: brake and clutch fluid, fuel filter/strainer, engine coolant and oil/filter with original Suzuki manufacturer products and a new Yuasa battery. It hasn’t even had its break-in service (600 miles). The Busa starts, purrs, and runs!”

According to the seller, the bike is stock.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Bridgestone Battlax tires with date codes of 4302 and 4702.

The sale includes two keys, the owner manuals/tools, a keeper disc lock, an unpacked original Suzuki petrol tank cover, an extra comfortable seat, two Heli handlebars, and all paperwork.
