    Default New third-generation 2021 Hayabusa!!!

    Technically it's a GS.... well, GSX anyway.

    Some might be interested so I thought that I'd throw up what information has been trickled out so far. After all, we've only been waiting for a Gen3 Hayabusa since the Gen2 debuted in 2008. Seems like a lifetime ago... or several lifetimes in bike years.

    It started late last week with this teaser video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M19ObgWNnjk

    And today we received this:

    https://player.vimeo.com/video/506993825

    Yum, yum, give me sum!

    No technical details yet (engine displacement, etc) but it's definitely received an electronics update! Rumours are saying it'll be a normally aspirated 1440cc, 200hp engine and the 11000rpm redline on the tach seems to justify the big-bore engine. Some folks were speculating on a boosted 1000cc engine a la Kawasaki H2 but that's doubtful now that the gauge cluster has been revealed. No boost gauge, no 14000rpm redline. I'm fine with that. Less complexity, more old-skool Busa. It just wouldn't be a hypersport without a car-sized engine in it.

    All the details are due on Friday.

    Thanks for Sharing this!!!
    Hmm looks awesome... The only thing, it still looks uncomfortable to me. I'll keep my 200hp cruiser. For now...

    That S.R.A.D. tail is evident...since inception!

    It's a beautiful bike!!!

    I can bend my knees to 140 degrees but before I had my surgery, I was already getting numbness in my knees (on long rides I had to straighten my legs) when I had my first bike...so I get what Jedz is talking about.

    Suzuki's seat to foot-peg distance has always been tight on their sportbikes but the aftermarket has been there supplying drop-pegs for those afflicted with long legs/bad knees (me on both counts). A lot of Busa/B-King guys have used Buell pegs as they slotted in and gave an extra inch or so of drop.

    There's a solution for every problem.

    Necessity is the Mother of Invention...in this regard.

    I do love the sitting position and leaning forward.

    Good looking machine. I have only ever ridden the Gen 1 Busa, but it did not strike me as uncomfortable-even in comparison to the FZ-1 I was riding at the time (with lower bars and rearsets).

    There has been speculation online for a decade regarding a third generation Hayabusa so take what you find with a grain, or a bag, of salt. There has been nothing official until last week so anything prior is as I said, pure speculation and wishful thinking.

    Friday is the day that all will be revealed. I'm surprised that I can sleep as well as I am!

    Having had two Gen1s (one of which is back in my possession) and a Gen2 (as well as two B-Kings), a new Gen3 is destined to find its way into my garage... just not sure when. The Gen2 lasted for 13 model years so I think I will have ample time to get around to having a Gen3 in my life.

    Yep, a really nice modern looking & acting sport bike. But at 67 yr. old a Kawasaki RS900 would probably suit me better, even with the 90 less HP.
