Suzuki Hayabusa 2022 Gen3

Pricing for the 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa starts at $18,599 and “all new” motorcycle that Suzuki claims they have changed over 500 parts.

Suzuki claims the 2022 Hayabusa is quicker in an 1/8-mile drag race and from a standing start to 62 mph (100 km/h). The 1/8-mile time drops a tenth to 6.8 seconds, and the run to 62 mph takes 3.2 seconds—down two-tenths from the earlier Hayabusa.

The new pistons are 26 grams lighter. They also have a new shape, and the machined wrist-pin holes have a conical shape. The piston pins are shorter and lighter. As before, the 2022 Hayabusa uses forged pistons with PVD-coated rings.

The connecting rods are more rigid and lighter. Each connecting rod is 3 grams lighter.

The cases have new oil passages. Flow and pressure at the crankshaft are up a claimed 54 percent.
