2008 Suzuki - First Look

Suzuki has come out swinging for the 2008 model year, unveiling a more powerful Hayabusa, the radical monster-motored B-King streetfighter, a sensible middleweight sportbike, variations of the muscle-cruiser M109R, and the fuel-injected RM-Z450 motocrosser.

Suzuki has dropped its anticipated bomb in the speed wars with a thoroughly overhauled Hayabusa, but thereís much more early-release news from Team S.

The formerly unassailable speed king íBusa shares Suzuki spotlight with another big-bore bruiser, the Transformer-ish B-King streetfighter that uses a version of the Hayabusaís powerplant. And if thatís not enough, Suzi is also delivering a sensible sportbike, the GSX650, based off the Euro-only Bandit 650, plus a few new takes on the M109R uber-cruiser. And then thereís the first mass-production motocrosser with fuel injection, the new RM-Z450.

But above all is the flagship Hayabusa that has become a modern-day sportbike icon. Visually, this í08 model isnít a big departure from the unique, flowing lines of the original that debuted in 1999. Sharp eyes will notice smoother curves, a taller windscreen and faired-in turnsignals front and rear. But the signature silhouette with bulging tail hump remains distinctly Hayabusa.
