Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R Performance Statistics (1st Generation 1999-2007)

The following is part two of the 1999-2007 generation Suzuki Hayabusa’s performance statistics report. These are a combination of my personal figures and those from sources as listed. This articles has been moved back to this website ( as I go through a consolidation of content from all the various websites which I contributed to over the years. 

An updated page on the performance of the Suzuki Hayabusa – still officially the fastest motorcycle in the world (production class) even if it has a limiter now and there is a new 2nd generation version of the motorcycle. These performance specs for the Hayabusa here are mainly for ’99 & ’00 models however I will try to indicate where it applies to other year models. The engine itself has not changed dramatically over the years. See the other pages for the new 2008 performance figures and stats.

I have split the general specifications details off to a new page since it is getting rather long. Specifications for the Hayabusa can be found on Page 1 .

Note that the top speed limiter was integrated into 2001 Suzuki Hayabusa models onwards does not effect the performance of the bike in anyway except for the the top speed. The 2nd generation Hayabusa is likewise limited as well. Also note that your Hayabusa will probably differ in the various performance measurements not all bikes are the same.

Note I wish to thank everyone who has sent in dyno charts whether used here or not for taking to the time to scan and send ! You have made the world a better place. THANK YOU. 

Fuel consumption :

City 5.6 litres (Premium) per 100kms
Highway 5.1 litres (Premium) per 100kms
Highway 5.4 litres (Premium) @ 160kph per 100kms

These readings where taken from the onboard fuel computer.
Best ever record to date is 5.0 lts per 100k’s on 19/6/2000
Variable speed @ variable throttle but never full throttle
at stead 160kph using premium Unleaded 94+
Standard unleaded petrol
No Choke starts – this is the tropics !
Light throttle.
Fresh fuel.
Recently serviced.
Figures recorded by myself in 2000 dry 27-32 degrees centigrade – but humid conditions.
Normal cruising range about 350km-400km per tank, using top gear as much as possible.
* All measurements are litres consumed per 100kms.

Performance :


These figures are as tested by various publications over the years.
Of course everyone knows the Suzuki claims 300kph plus or 200mph.
400m takes 10ish seconds
(All tests I’ve read are between 9.4 and 10.4 seconds)
Speed at 400m 235kph
(All test I’ve read are between 232 and 238km)
0-100 takes 3 seconds
(All tests I’ve read hover between 3 and 3.5 seconds)
Top speed : at least 300kph
(All test I’ve read hover between 291 and 317kph in varying conditions)

60 – 120km Hayabusa 4.9 secs
60 – 120km Blackbird 6.1 secs
60 – 120km GSX-R 6.8 secs
60 – 120km ZZ-R1100 7.2 secs
(Australian Performance Streetbike magazine)
(Buy the mag and read the article, its one of the better ones.)
0-200kph takes about 7.6 secs

Claimed power :
175bhp at 9800 rpm at the crank – 1999 stock version no mods.

Tests average :
157bhp at  back wheel – 1999 stock version no mods.
There are now heaps of performance enhancements which show that with appropriate mods 200 reliable bhp is although expensive relatively easy to  achieve.

Top Speed :
Claimed top speed is at least 200 MPH or about 321KPH for 1999 models. 
Top speed is at least 189 MPH for late 2000 and 2001 models onwards.
Top Speed as measured by the Guinness Book of Records 2000 & 2004
edition is 317KPH

The Hayabusa has double the BHP and torque compared to the CBR600. The CBR600 needs to rev to 10,000 rpm to generate the same power as the  Hayabusa at 5,500 RPM The Hayabusa produces 20-25bhp more than the R1 at any given speed.

Information based on a large number or articles written here and overseas. And Yes I’ll be dyno testing my own bike within the year.
Due to the unavailability of a Dyno Machine where I live I am unable to dyno my own machine.
