There’s great a news for bike fans in India, especially for those who have an interest in sports bikes.
Ahead of this year’s Auto Expo, Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) has launched the 2018 edition of the Suzuki Hayabusa in India. 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa’s price is the same as the 2017 editions at Rs. 13.87 Lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
Suzuki will also display the 2018 Hayabusa at the Auto Expo in February. It oloomes in two colour schemes- Glass Sparkle Black and Pearl Glacier White/Pearl Mira Red.
The Busa boasts an iconic status in India. It commands a huge fan following among the big-bike lovers across the country. When Suzuki received a tremendous demand for the Busa, it had to set up a manufacturing plant in India, making it the first ‘Made-in-India’ big bike of 2017.
Since March 2016, the Hayabusa is being imported by Suzuki as CKD (completely knocked down) and assembled at its factory in Gurugram. The launch of the CKD version of the Busa has resulted in a nearly 100% increase in sales of the Hayabusa. Big-bike enthusiasts are keen to buy this new set of wheels with a two-wheeler insurance cover to protect it from any damages and unforeseen events.
