Gen1 vs Gen2 Hayabusa

There are 3 generations of Hayabusa now gen1, gen2 and gen3. As a longtime Suzuki fan and Hayabusa owner/rider, I am not a big fan of the gen3. It looks like something out of the 60’s and is lacking in hp and torque to the gen2. More electronics, more pollution restrictions, but not a king maker. Suzuki lost this position with much more powerful Kawasaki production bikes. Why? Likely new management.

This article however is about the difference between gen1 and gen2. And I am not going to get into the heavy detail specs, they are all over the internet. I am going to address the difference from a rider difference and in this I have first hand experience because I own and ride both randomly and have been doing this for some time. So I am going to report my personal findings on these two amazing bikes.

But first I must mention that the Kawy that is the leader is the H2, not the H2SX that even with the supercharger, has less power than all the Hayabusa’s or the discontinued ZX14, that in reality was a very close challenge to the Hayabusa’s. Really depending on the rider. In some cases we see the Kawy faster and in some cases we see the Busa faster.

But back to the gen1/gen2. These are two very different bikes. My impression is the gen1 is closer to the gsxr1000, lighter, more respondent and a little more crazy than the gen2. The gen2 on the other hand does have another 22hp and you can feel it in the rev range and in particular the upper revs, however, the design of the gen2 seemed to be to captivate the sport touring market and this shows. The gen2 is a heavier bike, smoother, whereas the the gen1 is quite the opposite and a screamer. Both bikes are “olde school” compared to the newer litre bikes, but there certainly is beauty in that. The other thing, is both are built tough and indestructable.

So for me I love both. Both have great power, but the gen2 is simply smoother. For people that are looking for more from the olde school bikes, the gen2 has improved electronics and can tune the addition of nitrous through the ECU, while the gen1 will need a power commander. For people that say hey I had my gen2 ecu flashed, sure you did, but I am talking about improved builtin potential of the gen2 for nitrous.

The catalytic on the gen2 is bigger and heavier, the airbox on the gen1 is one piece unlike the gen2 being a two piece, meaning for one, if you want to put a spyder spray system into the airbox its all but impossible on the gen1.

Initially, I loved the gen2 better than the gen1, but now that I have gotten to really know the uniqueness of each, I now love both and not entirely sure which one I would pick over the other if I had to?

KTM Duke R

The 890 Duke R’s 889cc parallel-Twin engine has DOHC with four valves per cylinder, and it is tuned to deliver an additional 6 horsepower over the standard 890 Duke. When we tested the 2020 KTM 890 Duke R, it sent 111 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 67 lb-ft of torque at 7,000 rpm to the rear wheel.
