2022 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R MC Commute Review

We review the 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R sportbike on the street in this review.

2022 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R MC Commute Review

Suzuki’s Hayabusa ($18,599) is the ideal sportbike for folks looking to get somewhere quickly. And after a seven-year production run since its last minor update (2013 MY), the Japanese brand treats us with a thorough refresh that hopes to attract the next generation of Bridgestone tire smearing ‘Busa riders.

Editor’s note: We reported on the GSX1300R’s technical improvements during the article. Also peruse the from its European press introduction. To learn about the previous version, take a peek at the article and video. This review is the first in a multi-part series.

Swing a leg over the Hayabusa, and the seating position is familiar, but with a slightly lower seat height. It remains tall rider-friendly with a long, low and stretched-out riding position. If you’re an NBA-sized rider, you’re going to like this Suzuki. A few pounds lighter than its predecessor, the 582-pound GSX1300R is a sizable motorcycle between the rider’s legs.

As usual, the Hayabusa sports a comfy rider seat that is well suited to long days in the saddle.

Release the easier-pulling hydraulic clutch, and its heft fades away, along with anything else in the rearview mirrors. Like before the ‘Busa delivers a smooth spread of thrust that makes it deceiving fast. A bi-directional quickshifter makes it even easier (and faster) to row through the six-speed gearbox without using the clutch. Engine vibration is minimal and this bike is well-suited to high-speed Interstate rides, especially with its standard cruise control.

We’re always impressed by how well Suzuki’s Hayabusa handles for a nearly 600-pound sportbike. Its handling is even more effortless for 2022.

The ’22 spec inline-four (187.75 claimed horsepower) makes nearly seven ponies less than the previous version, says Suzuki. Torque output is also lower (3.7 pound-feet) and now rated at 114.3 pound-feet. However, we didn’t notice a difference versus its predecessor. Top speed remains limited at 185 mph.

Like before, the Suzuki Hayabusa’s ergonomics package favors taller than average riders.

Although first on the scene with a fuel-injected Japanese sportbike and adjustable S-DMS engine power modes, Suzuki has been slow to adopt modern electronics. We’re happy to report the Hayabusa includes all the current bells and whistles. From IMU-powered traction, wheelie, cornering ABS, and engine brake control, the Hayabusa finally enters the digital era. A mixed analog and digital dash looks familiar and features logical and easy to use switchgear— especially compared to more complicated setups from other brands.

The instrument display is a mix of old and new. It’s easy to read and we like the switchgear and menu navigation.

Rolling on a set of seven-spoke alloy wheels, this Suzuki benefits from updated suspension components that deliver a comfortable, yet planted ride during full-throttle acceleration and firm brake input. A larger set of front disc brakes with Brembo’s gorgeous Stylema-generation calipers do a fine job of shedding speed. The rear brake remains strong and easy to modulate. The brake system also includes combined braking. Brake pressure is automatically routed to the rear brake when the front brake lever is actuated. It’s a seamless setup.

Suzuki joins the modern sportbike era with a suite of electronic rider aids. The electronics are easy to setup and allow the Hayabusa to go from mild to wild with a push of a button.

Still fast, still smooth, Suzuki’s ’22 Hayabusa street bike continues to impress with its lofty level of refinement. Although it doesn’t feel vastly different, the improvements Suzuki made make for a more polished riding experience. Consider its sleeker styling, and high-level of electronic adjustability, and there’s plenty of reason to have a new Suzuki parked in the garage if smooth effortless speed is your hobby.
