Rumoured 1440cc Suzuki Hayabusa For 2019

Suzuki New GSX R Concept

There are rumours that the once undisputed Hayabusa is coming back for 2019. 

According to reports in several Japanese motorcycle magazines, as well as Italian site Insella - both notably on trend with their predictions - Suzuki is working on a 1440cc Hayabusa for 2019. 

The ‘GSX1400R’ Hayabusa is rumoured to debut around the 20th anniversary of the original 1999, 1340cc iteration. The new model is expected to have a new chassis with semi-active suspension and cornering ABS. 

Suzuki's stands were pretty absent of new models this year other than the SV650X, a cafe version of the existing SV650, and Suzuki are yet to update their existing GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 to meet new emissions standards. 

It's no surprise that a new Hayabusa has always been on the cards, with UK Suzuki sources reassuring that the Japanese factory wouldn't just let a monumental bike like the Hayabusa fall to the wayside. 

Back in 2015, Suzuki were already hinting that a new Hayabusa was under consideration, punctuated by the release of the ‘Concept GSX’ image seen above.
