2019 Gen 3 Hayabusa.

Bennets are one of the UKs biggest bike insurance companies.

A very interesting read and gives some of the politics around the Euro4 standard and the logic behind waiting until 2019 for the 20th anniversary of the marque.

The zzr1400 finishes this year I believe?
That leaves Suzuki to finish it off where it started with the first Hayabusa the worlds fastest superbike. Maybe.

I just hope the article is incorrect.  If the 2019 Busa only goal is to compete with the ZZR1400; which HOS you are correct, the 2017 is the last year of the 14R, this will be sad.  Kawasaki has moved their "Hyper Performance Street" product line toward 1000cc supercharged bikes that will trounce  a 1440cc Busa at just about anything.

The H2 is certainly a very fast bike but the basic bike is only pushing 200bhp same as the zzr1400.
The H2R is a minority bike imo.

Therefore Suzuki needs to at least match the 200bhp of the zzr1400 but can Suzuki pare down the weight of the GSX1400R to give it an unbeatable power to weight ratio?

SuzukiInc. like all major manufacturers, certainly has the technology to do this so the question is, will they?  The 20th anniversary of the Marc IMO would be the right time.  As for the power to weight ratio, aerodynamics, suspension, etc, F1 cars, arguably the most advanced motorsports effort on the planet, seem to have no problem in improving their power, handling and aerodynamics year after year.  Why not Suzuki?

I hope they come out with a new updated reasonably price Busa that the average enthuses can afford.

I really hope they upgrade the old busa. Suzuki has been lagging behind for too long now, time to get back in front.
