No further information is being shared however, Suzuki is expected to bring the new-gen Hayabusa via the CKD route and as a result, the price will be higher than the previous generation model.

2021 Suzuki Hayabusa Engine details
The Suzuki Hayabusa was always known for its speed and powerful refined engine. The new-gen Hayabusa still continues to use the 1,340cc, four-cylinder engine but apart from that, it is a completely new engine specially reworked for this motorcycle. Some of the major changes include lighter pistons, new connecting rods, camshafts, crankshaft and fuel injectors. But with newer emission norms coming to play there is a little disappointment as the power has dropped from 197hp to 190hp and peak torque is rated at 150NM which also slightly lower than the previous generation. However, Suzuki claimes that the new engine has better torque delivery making it the quickest Hayabusa ever.
Chassis, Suspension and brakes
The 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa uses the same twin-spar aluminium frame from the previous generation bike. As result, the dimensions are similar and have an identical wheelbase of 1,480mm. But the new Busa is lighter than before as it gets redesigned lightweight twin exhaust muffler which is Euro-5-compliant and the kerb weight is now 264Kgs which is 2 kgs less than the old Busa.
The suspension duty in the new Busa is taken care of by Showa suspension which has reworked internals and now the newly designed 6-spoke alloy wheels runs on the Bridgestone Battlax S22 tyre that provides superior grip which will result in great handling. The biggest and most needed change the new Hayabusa has got in the braking department as it now gets Brembo Stylema callipers at the front which will offer superior braking when there need to slow down this beast.
2021 Suzuki Hayabusa Riding Technology
The new generation Suzuki Hayabusa has received tons of upgrades in its electronics for a better riding experience. Now come with a new 6-axis IMU, 10 levels of traction control, 10 levels of wheelie control, three levels of engine braking, three different power modes, then there is launch control, cruise control, cornering ABS and even hill hold control.
The Busa also gets redesigned all-LED headlight and taillights. However, the instrument console still features a twin-pod analogue unit but now it features a new TFT display so that the rider can navigate through various electronic options. For more details, we have to wait for its launch.
