Cult Bikes ep. 2 | Suzuki GSX 1300 R “Hayabusa” [ENG SUBTITLES]


Hello Riders and Welcome from Your MadHorse! Here We’re again with a brand new Episode for “Cult Bikes” Series and like the ep. 0 The “Pilot” Episode of this section We’ll talk about a stunning Sport Bike/ Sport Tourer Like I said on previous video 90’s was a golden period for Superbikes and this kind of bike became for every manifacturer the “Crown Jewel” for Stock Production shortly the desire to go beyond kicked in the desire to create something to “leave a mark” inside the mind of 2 wheels Lovers everything started by Honda creating the CBR 1100 XX and the bike which We’re talking about today Borned 3 Years later from the CBR to challenge this terrible rival the Name of this bike (Hayabusa) comes from the most fast Peregrine Falcon able to reach 320 Km/h during the Nose Dive and the name perfectly fits to this bike because Honda reached the max speed of 292 Km/h while Suzuki reached 312 Km/h these incredible speeds created a lot of discussions related to the safety and the Topic became so Hot to start thinking about a “Ban” in Europe Luckily on 2000 the problem was solved with a Gentlemen Agreement between Top 4 Japanese Manifacturers Focused on this crazy challenge about Top Speed which limited their bikes to 299 Km/h by using an Electronic Limiter that’s the reason because the 1st Hayabusa of 1999 has speedometer with a 350 Km/h limit the engine is a 4 Cylinders in line of 1298 cc with 175 Hp 10 more than CBR a True Record for Stock production Street Bikes at that time this bike is powered by a special ECU with 6 different regolations 1 for every gear automatically activated by a sensor on Gear selector which is utilised on the gear counter on speedometer the Fairing, the most distintive trait of this bike is focused on Aerodynamics so focused to create on the passenger seat a small spoiler to oppose the minimum resistance to wind when the pilot is at high speed behind the wind shield this combination of Power and Aerodynamics created an outstanding Mix infact despite the incredible heavy weight of 243 Kg (Dry Weight!) so elevated, specially for a Sport Bike Hayabusa of 1999 reached 100 Km/h in 2,68 s while 200 Km/h were “devoured” just in 6,9 s on 2008 it had a great restyling on different points the new fairing tried to soften design, while keep focusing about Pilot protection from wind and by keeping the aerodynamics skills which always defined the Gsx r 1300 Hayabusa cycling was improved front disks changed from 320 x 5 mm into 310 x 5,5 mm Tokiko Brakes were enhanced with 4 pistons and a Radial frame attachment Forks were increased and hardened while frame received small refines focused to improve the resistence engine enhanced increasing to 1348 cc engine size and egine power to 197 Hp despite the exceptional prestations in the USA is common to go beyond and enhance more by installing a Turbo and N20 Kit able to make “Boosa” reach 500 HP right in this land this bike had is way to success mainly for the power unleashed extremely important parameter for USA and in a small part for Cars competitions which often authorizes on prototype vehicles the use of 1300 cc engines so The Hayabusa engine fitted perfectly this bike despite rivals which went Out of Production is the only bike still producted from that time but probably it would’ve been a “madness” do the opposite Beacuse the Gsx R 1300 became a real Cult Bike on different markets like I said in the USA but in East Europe too and it appeared on different movies a bike to becareful on Expenses too and it weren’t limited to the Gasoline because many people said that Hayabusa stopped more to Tyre Dealer despite the Gas Stations That’s all Folks!
