Suzuki Australia has introduced the updated 2013 Hayabusa sportsbike this week, bringing with it a strong list of improvements.

The 2013 model features several new paint schemes, along with improvements to braking components and the same $19,250 retail price (plus on-road costs) as last year.

Fittingly, the 2013 Hayabusa is the first Suzuki sportsbike to feature an Antilock Braking System (ABS), and the new model is also fitted with radial-mount Brembo monobloc front brake calipers.

Brake disc sizes remain the same with dual 310mm floating discs at the front, and a single 260mm disc at the rear.

The Japanese bike-builder says the upgraded brake package “promises tactile feedback to the rider and increased initial bite to tame the Hayabusa's incredible power.”

The Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS), which gives the rider a choice of three available engine maps to suit rider preferences and riding conditions, is carried over from the last model.

A 1340cc DOHC four-stroke liquid-cooled inline-four cylinder engine will again provide the power and performance for which the Hayabusa is famous. Power remains unchanged at a very healthy 147kW, with 139Nm of torque.

The latest Hayabusa is now available in three new colour schemes; Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Grey, Pearl Glacier White/Metallic Grey and Marble Daytona Yellow/Glass Sparkle Black.

The 2013 Suzuki Hayabusa is on sale now and is backed by Suzuki's two-year unlimited-kilometre warranty.
