The Hayabusa is cheaper than several litre-class superbikes in India after the commencement of local assembly.

Suzuki Motorcycles India recently started assembling its flagship superbike in India, signalling its commitment to the fast-growing performance motorcycle segment in the country. The Suzuki Hayabusa has always been a highly sought after superbike in India and the local assembly has made it all the more tempting.

The Hayabusa is being assembled out of CKD kits at a cordoned off facility within Suzuki’s Gurgaon plant.

The Hayabusa is assembled in India by a team of hand-picked operators.

The motorcycle is put together by a team of carefully hand-picked employees who are described as the best of the lot. The chosen team was then trained by engineers from Suzuki’s Toyokawa factory.

The making of Hayabusa in India involves two sub-assembly tables and three assembly stations. The power unit, however, is imported into India as a completely built unit. The first assembly station marries the engine to chassis, the second assembly station adds fluid, mechanical and electrical elements. The final station gets the bodywork on. This state alone takes 4 four workers and 2 supervisors.

Thanks to the local assembly, the first motorcycle to be capable of breaching 300 kmph limit is now priced at INR 13.57 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi). That is a lot cheaper than many litre-class machines in India. The India-spec model’s mandatory saree guard and front license plate holder alone took 10 months for Suzuki from design to production.
