If you’re one of the lucky bastards that owns a Suzuki Hayabusa, let’s get one thing straight: I hate you! Now, let move on to more interesting stuff, shall we? Clearly, the Hayabusa is the least common bike; probably the reason why Roland Sands workshop decided to fiddle around with it in the first place. It’s good news, nonetheless, since we get the chance to drool at a one-of-a-kind Suzuki.
So, let’s find out if Roland Sands has all the needed creativity and resources to add a magic touch to the Suzuki Hayabusa. The bike received a Vance and Hines exhaust – to boost the power of the modded engine – and a Race Series K&N air filter. The Suzuki power was tuned up to – with ported heads and hotter cams – bringing the power up to a dangerous number of 240 HP.
Seemed only natural for the team to install a Track Dynamics stretched swing-arm, in order to allow the speed freaks to lay a heavy hand on the throttle. The suspensions were provided by Ohlins while the race-weight wheels were Performance Machine’s responsibility.
The RSD Suzuki Hayabusa also features an MV Agusta tail light, a Hotbodies Dual Radius GP screen and Bitchin Seat Co. especially made seat – to match the rear cowl. Chris Wood from Airtrix was the artist behind the simple yet exquisite graphics idea. All in all, we can all agree that RSD has done a fine job with this bike, although it’s not really a Harley.
