2022 Hayabusa Suzuki Sports Motorcycle – Features and Specs
The strong 1,340cc inline-four cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine has been extensively revised to give a seamless explosion of torque. Crankcases have been redesigned to improve longevity by 54% thanks to improved oil passages that the GSX-R1000 inspired. New hardware and a revised way of tightening have been added to the crankcase assembly to increase engine rigidity and durability. Crankcase pressure created by falling pistons may escape to adjoining cylinders via U-shaped apertures in the cylinder bores, reducing internal pumping pressure and mechanical power losses. Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) ring seal, durability, and heat dissipation are all improved by the cylinder coating. The unique shape of the three-ring aluminum-alloy slipper pistons allows them to be 26 grams lighter than their predecessors. Conical machining in the piston pin bores improves both strength and durability. An all-new chrome-nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) piston ring coating is more durable and smoother than conventional chrome plating, and it helps to seal the SCEM-coated cylinder better.
The cylinder head’s Twin Swirl Combustion Chamber (TSCC) design has been tweaked to promote faster and more complete combustion of the fuel-air mixture. Complementing earlier valve train enhancements, the modification boosts combustion efficiency by 5%. To boost low- and mid-range engine performance, the timing of both camshafts was adjusted, and the lift of the exhaust camshaft was increased. The longevity and lubrication of the valve train are improved with wider camshaft lobes. Lightweight titanium valves are combined with new, higher-rate valve springs to maintain accurate valve control. The cam chain tensioner was adjusted to reduce chain runout. The slipper surface has been re-coated with Teflon to reduce mechanical loss. Because each cylinder’s iridium spark plug is fired by its coil cap, the resulting combustion is complete and the pins live longer than in conventional ignition systems. A compact, dense-core curved radiator and two electrical fans, all controlled by the ECM, keep the engine at a constant temperature. The cooling efficiency of the Hayabusa was enhanced by the addition of airflow through the radiator, made possible by the ship’s modified body. The cooling fan boosts airflow on the Hayabusa by around 7% when traveling at low to moderate speeds and by about 8% at higher rates.
To mitigate the effects of traffic stoppage on the rider, the cooling fans’ blade pitch has to seal the SCEM-coated cylinder better, and their shroud size has been reduced. Underneath the central radiator is a massive air-cooled oil cooler that reduces crankcase oil temperatures. The Hayabusa now has Suzuki’s Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle Body technology, which provides a soft, natural reaction with linear control similar to a conventional throttle. The electronic throttle bodies, part of a new intake system (throttle body, intake pipe, and air cleaner funnel) 12mm longer than the previous model Hayabusa, feature tapered 43mm bores to boost power at low to mid-range engine speeds.
Since the ECM controls the throttle bodies, it also introduces or improves functions like cruise control, launch and lift control, the new bi-directional quick shift system, cold-start-up and idle speed management, and simplified service processes. The newly built throttle bodies have four primary fuel injectors that spray gasoline mist directly into the intake pipes. Four new additional Suzuki Side Feed Injectors (S-SFI) are mounted on the sides of the intake funnels, just above the throttle body. These new side injectors spray a fine mist of gasoline onto a reflecting plate above the throttle body, which increases power and torque generation in the low to mid-range by 2%. By redesigning the throttle bodies, we were able to increase the air supply to the engine and so increase the capacity of the air cleaner assembly from 10.3 to 11.5 liters. The air cleaner has a sturdier lid and a more straightforward internal design, increasing the air’s quietness as it enters the engine.
An all-new two Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SRAD) intake ducts located in the top fairing direct high-pressure, fresh air to the air cleaner, increasing performance linearly with increasing vehicle velocity. Flow analysis was utilized to develop the SRAD ducts for the redesigned Hayabusa. The new design is more aerodynamic, makes a more exciting intake sound, and increases the flow of pressurized air to the air cleaner while lowering pressure loss. The Suzuki Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) system reduces carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by igniting unburned hydrocarbons (HC) in the exhaust. The lighter exhaust system (by 4.5 pounds, or 2,054 grams) and its newly designed silencers complement the Hayabusa’s overall aesthetic. The silencers’ capacity has been increased, making for a more exciting sound at low speeds and off idle.
The redesigned four-into-two-into-one-into-two exhaust system architecture uses a new pipe connecting the number one and four head pipes to help generate more low- and mid-range power and torque. The #2 and #3 head pipes benefit from being connected by a connector pipe, much as the exhaust from the previous iteration did. To further reduce hydrocarbon (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, the redesigned exhaust system has high-flow catalysts in both the silencer and the mid-pipe. Dual O2 sensors instantly react to the ECM, creating a smooth and clean EFI. The exhaust silencers’ (mufflers’) body color and tint will change over time as a function of the bike’s use. Because of this, every Hayabusa may have its unique look and feel thanks to the rider.
The 2022 Hayabusa Suzuki Sports Motorcycle’s twin-spar aluminum frame and swing arm employ aluminum castings and extruded aluminum components to counteract the torsional stiffness of the alloy frame. The new sub-frame is lighter (700 grams) and more robust (by 1.5 pounds) than its predecessor since it is made of longer rectangular steel tubing. Similarly, the KYB inverted cartridge fork has been improved to better absorb road stress. The improved ride quality and traction come from a redesigned internal construction that provides more compliance. The spring preload, rebound, and compression damping force settings allow the rider to fine-tune the fork’s suspension response to their tastes. Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the fork’s 43mm inner tubes reduces friction and improves sensitivity to minor disturbances in the road.
The KYB rear shock absorber underwent similar internal design modifications to the fork to boost comfort and straight-line stability. The shock absorber has threaded spring preload adjustment collars in addition to the standard rebound and compression damping force controls. A steering damper connected to the frame and lower fork bracket reduces unwanted vibration and steering forces. At low speeds, the drag has been set up to make the steering seem light. New cast aluminum alloy wheels complement the aggressive appearance of the Hayabusa with seven spokes that improve rider feel and grip. The new Battlax Hyper sport S22 tires were co-created by Suzuki and Bridgestone, and they come in 120/70ZR17M/C (58W) and 190/50ZR17M/C (73W) sizes for the front and rear of the Hayabusa, respectively. These Bridgestone tires have a novel compound and design that improves dry-surface grip, wet-weather performance, and overall maneuverability. The rider will have a more exciting and confident time thanks to the S22 tires’ exceptional braking grip and straight-line stability.
The Hayabusa has Brembo Stylema front brake calipers. These new calipers are smaller, lighter, and painstakingly sculpted to increase airflow around the brake pads, allowing them to cool down more quickly and will enable the bike to respond more rapidly. The Stylema front brake calipers employ a set of stainless steel full-floating discs with a diameter of 310mm to 320mm and a redesigned whole pattern to further maximize cooling efficiency.
The lone 260mm rear rotor is gripped by a brake caliper with a single piston. The floating handlebar mount has been updated to decrease vibration, and its appearance has been tweaked better to suit its status as a high-end sport bike. By moving the handlebars inward by 12 mm, we improved control while decreasing rider fatigue. Sporty but comfy, the rider footrests are mounted to the frame using damped hardware to reduce vibration. The heel guards include plastic inserts that are both replaceable and adjustable. The user may easily tailor the bike to their needs by adjusting the gear lever and the lever for the back brake. The clutch and front brake levers of the Hayabusa are black anodized and fully adjustable for optimal rider control. The openings at the ends reduce the possibility of the wind pushing the levers inward.
