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 (hyp4r.com) 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.

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.
1st Gear :
These figures are as tested by various publications over the years.
60 – 120km Hayabusa 4.9 secs
Claimed power :
Tests average :
Top Speed :
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.
