Imported Sports Bikes in India
* Imported bikes enjoy a cult status among Indian bike aficionados. Notwithstanding their exorbitant pricing, high-performance super bikes like Suzuki Hayabusa and Kawasaki Ninja have been plying in the Indian roads courtesy the cash-rich, style-savvy Indian youth. These awesome machines have been imported to India as the home-grown manufacturers are yet to come up with genuine high-speed super bikes
* Suzuki Hayabusa
Suzuki introduced the sportbike Suzuki GSX1300R, popularly known as the Hayabusa, in 1999. Since its inception the Suzuki Hayabusa was widely regarded as the fastest production motorcycle in the world until major Japanese motorcycle manufacturers voluntarily imposed speed regulators in their bikes.
The Hayabusa derives its name from the Japanese term for the Peregrine Falcon, the fastest creature on the planet with speeds in excess of 300 km/h in its hunting dive. The Hayabusa's 4-stroke, four-cylinder liquid-cooled 1299cc engine enables it to generate an enormous peak power of 175 bhp at 9800 rpm and reach from 0-100 km/h in three seconds flat. The Hayabusa's roaring success prompted other motorcycle manufacturers to come up with similar speed merchants like the BMW K1200S and the Kawasaki ZX-14R.
