Two Wheelers


  • Overview

    In 1999, when Suzuki wanted to outperform Honda's Blackbird model, they created a new brand that they named Hayabusa - "peregrine falcon" in Japanese, the fastest of any bird in its dive hunting speed - and whose prey is ... the blackbird. Yes, like the Honda bike. This story is nice. But we think nice isn't a good seller. So, we give you this: Suzuki outran Honda and won enough championships to make the Hayabusa one of the hottest sport bikes in the world, with a gorgeous aerodynamic look.
