The 1999 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa

1999, it almost feels like yesterday. The carefree days of having plenty of hair and a 32 inch waist when all this were still fields and 160bhp would earn you the title of ‘world’s fastest motorcycle’

They were the glory days when men were men and traction control (if you had even heard of the term) was for car drivers. Because bikes didn’t have it yet. Sit back and enjoy the original launch of the Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa from the April 1999 issue of SuperBike Magazine.
