Suzuki gifts Hayabusa Yoshimura SERT Motul replica to world champion Guintoli

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are the notable features of the Suzuki Hayabusa?

    It has a sophisticated electronics package, which includes three power modes, 10 modes of lean angle-sensitive traction control, lean angle-sensitive ABS, three modes of launch control, a bi-directional quickshifter, and cruise control, while its engine delivers an abundance of smooth, linear power across the rev range.
  • What are Sylvain Guintoli's notable racing statistics?

    Guintoli, together with teammates Gregg Black and Xavier Simeon, won the Bol d'Or and the Le Mans 24-hour races with Suzuki in 2021. The team now holds the championship lead and won the historic Le Mans 24-hour race in 2022.
  • Guintoli has long praised the Hayabusa and the smoothness of its 1340cc, turbine-like engine, despite the fact that he races on a GSX-R1000. Due to the combination of the two, Suzuki's third-generation Hayabusa now has the recognizable red and black livery of Yoshimura-powered endurance cars.

    The French champion brought the most recent Hayabusa model to a track day at Donington Park and mixed it with race bikes in the fast group to obtain a better understanding of it.

    After a full day’s riding, Guintoli commented: “Firstly, the bike looks amazing, I have to thank Suzuki for this beautiful bike to celebrate our successes over the past few years. Out on track the Hayabusa is fantastic, the throttle response is so linear and power delivery is smooth, it inspires so much confidence to push harder! While this is a stock bike, the Hayabusa held its own here at Donington today.”
