Suzuki Hayabusa Bol d'Or breaks cover; only 100 units available
Japanese automaker Suzuki has unveiled the Bol d'Or edition of its Hayabusa motorbike in France. Its production is limited to just 100 units. The variant gets mechanical upgrades and flaunts several cosmetic changes, including new paintwork and a rear seat cowl. It is backed by a 1,340cc, liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine that churns out a maximum power of 190hp.
Why does this story matter?
- The limited-run Suzuki Hayabusa commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Bol d'Or 24-hour motorbike endurance racing event in France.
- The Hayabusa is already known for its ultra-premium factor and now this Bol d'Or variant makes it even more exclusive.
- Bookings for the two-wheeler in France are now open. Sadly, it will not make its way to our shores.
The bike sports Bol d'Or stickers and a large windshield
Suzuki Hayabusa Bol d'Or sports a larger windscreen, a flatter seat, an Akrapovic exhaust, and a shorter tail. It flaunts a dual-tone black and gold paintwork. The bike packs an all-LED lighting setup, a TFT LCD instrument cluster, and rides on seven-spoke wheels shod in Bridgestone tires. A SERT Factory Workshop aluminum number plate and Bol d'Or stickers on the fairings are also available.
It runs on a 190hp, liquid-cooled engine
The Suzuki Hayabusa Bol d'Or draws power from a 1,340cc, liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 190hp and a peak torque of 150Nm. The mill is linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
It gets inverted front forks
In terms of safety equipment, the Suzuki Hayabusa Bol d'Or is equipped with disc brakes on both the wheels, along with traction control, launch control, anti-lift control, and riding modes for better handling. Suspension duties on the supersport bike are taken care of by inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
