Bike News Launched Suzuki Bikes

2017 Suzuki Hayabusa launched in India – 1st unit delivered

Earlier this year, Suzuki Motorcycles India started the production of Hayabusa in India. This allowed the company to bring price down to just INR 13.88 lakh, ex-showroom.

With the 2017 edition of Hayabusa under production for a few weeks now, the Indian subsidiary has now announced that they have successfully delivered the first unit of latest Hayabusa edition. The 1st 2017 Suzuki Hayabusa was sold to Mr Gaurav Monga in Delhi.

Hayabusa is a highly desired superbike in Indian motorcycle community, whose claim to fame from featuring in a highly successful Bollywood flick hasn’t been forgotten yet. Not that the 197 PS machine which can throw the pointer till 299 kmph until electronics intervene, needed any other reason to turn towards.

Earlier this year, Suzuki Motorcycles India delighted Hayabusa fans and enthusiasts when they announced a huge price cut (in upwards of INR 2 lakhs). This was made possible after the company decided to start local assembly of Hayabusa (as compared to being sold as CBU earlier).

This move would not be limited to the Hayabusa. Suzuki Motorcycle India also has plans to locally assemble more superbikes, given the aggressive penetration of international brands and models in the sub-continent in very short time.

This will bring Suzuki to the same table as its close rivals such as Triumph, Kawasaki and Benelli, who have already started assembling their motorcycles locally and reaping benefits.

With more major motorcycle makers turning towards India and showing interest in attempting CKD operations, the market is increasingly responding by giving them better business. It is only a matter of time before all big names in the industry start catering to and operating in India.
