The Japanese factories' abandonment of their voluntary 125bhp upper horsepower limit in the mid-1990s paved the way for a new generation of 'hyper-sports' bikes, the first of which was Honda's CBR1100XX Blackbird, launched in 1996. However, the 178mph Blackbird's reign as world's fastest production motorcycle only lasted until the arrival of Suzuki's Hyabusa in 1999. Boasting 1,300cc to the Honda's 1,100, the Hyabusa aced the Blackbird courtesy of a whopping 150-plus brake horsepower and a top speed of 193mph, at which velocity the speedometer would be registering over 200mph... Despite exploring limits hitherto unknown to production road bikes, the wind-tunnel styled Hyabusa proved as stable at 170mph as it was at 70. "Riding the Hyabusa is like grabbing a surface-to-air missile by its fins and riding the mother at a distant target," enthused Bike magazine. However, scare stories in the press about 200mph road-going motorcycles soon caused a rethink in Japan, and today's hyper-sports roadsters are electronically limited to a top speed of 300km/h (186mph) which, if nothing else, made the early 'pre-limited' examples all the more collectible. First registered on 14th March 2000, this early Suzuki Hyabusa has been fitted with a Yoshimura exhaust, Dynojet Power Commander II and a Datatool alarm/immobiliser. Offered with V5C document.
