    Rumors have it that Suzuki may replace or rebrand the Hayabusa with either a whole new design including engine and chasis.

    A new engine to keep up with the competition for HP is the future goal now!!

    Thoughts, FACTS or more rumors anyone?

    Doing something with the motor would make sense to keep up with the HP war. Maybe make the bike lighter. The body was designed in a wind tunnel so I don't know what else they could do to that.

    I'd settle for a 1441.

    Brazeagle, you sound surprised? The GSXR1000 is next then maybe the Busa, maybe never. I wouldn't be surprised to see the 600 and 750 get upgrades before the Busa.

    1999-present ... For the first 7 years of its existence the Hayabusa had been labeled as the worlds fastest bike. No other manufacturer could even come close to competing with the tried and true 1340. It wasn't until 2006 that Kawasaki's claim to fame was with a 1352 in the ZX14R which was as aerodynamic as a cardboard box, and it needed every bit of those 12 cc's to cut through the air. Even then it couldn't leave the Busa. It wasn't until 2012 when Kawasaki decided to increase displacement to 1441 cc and make the effort to saw through the air even more challenging. While the Hayabusa's streamline areodynamics had remained virtually unchanged from the date of its release. Suzuki had realized they found the right combination and throughout the last 16 years the same basic design has been in use with the exception of the few 2nd gen modifications. The time and millions along with blood, sweat and beers spent during Research and development, areodynamic testing, and mechanical ingenuity truly paid off deeming the bike a true Masterpiece and it will take a truely phenomenal machine to take us into the next 16 years to come. Whether they change the design as I am sure they eventually will in the next few years it really will not matter because they have already paved a twisty road for other manufactures to follow. Back in the late 90's they knew that the Hayabusa would be a bike of the future and in our present those designs from the passed still hold true, because if it isn't broken. Why fix it?

    The truth is Suzuki stole a moment in time and no manufacturer will ever get it back. It's very easy today to make a streetable 300 HP bike you can ride every day, even in the rain. Suzuki built the fastest bike on the planet when it took amazing engineering skill. They built a bike so fast it took 10 years to catch it. But that impossible barrier is gone and like the sound barrier, it's been relegated to just another tick on the dial. If the Gen III is faster, it will be just another bike. Suzuki has to find a new barrier, push through it and allow us to do something on 2 wheels that was impossible before it.

    That's much more complicated than a bore increase and some electronics. Heck maybe a bike as dominant as the Hayabusa isn't possible anymore....

    .

    This is what 300 HP on the street could possibly look like in the hands of the mentally incapable. LOL

    Something is up with that video. No way is he rolling as fast as the speedometer says. Look at how slow he is going relative to the cars he passes. Speedometer says he's going 240 KPH? No way!

    I doubt he is even going 100 mph.

    You're right, something is not right.
    If you already against 200km. have driven than you know.
