1/12 SUZUKI HAYABUSA 1300 (GSX1300R)

About the Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 (GSX1300R)
In 1998, the Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 (GSX1300R) was quite the sensation during its debut at the "INTERMOTO 98" show in Germany. The Hayabusa is equipped with a 175hp in line 4-cylinder 4 DOHC valve water-cooled engine. To ensure good airflow to the ram air duct, a unique cowling design with vertically positioned twin headlights was adopted. The Hayabusa also realizes quick and powerful acceleration and performs excellent curving as well as effective braking. For expert and average level riders alike the cutting-edge Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 has proven to be rider friendly, and developed around the concept of the "ultimate sports bike" continues to delight riders all over the world.
