The braking duties are helmed by Brembo Stylema units at the front as well as rear. Some of the other features include a new Slipper Assist Clutch, 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-a). For those asking, the SDMS-a comprises a plethora of functions such as Power Mode Selector, Engine Brake Control System, Anti-Lift Control System, Motion Track Traction Control System and Bi-Directional Quick Shift System.
Mechanically, the 2021 Suzuki Hayabusa will be powered by a BS6 compliant 1340cc 4-cylinder petrol engine which will deliver a top power of 187bhp at 9700rpm and peak torque of 150Nm at 7000rpm.
