Suzuki has announced that it is lowering the curtain on their once all-conquering Hayabusa 1300, after 21 model years (and just one fairly mild refresh halfway through its life). The official reason is that Euro4 emission regs prohibit sales of the Hayabusa in the EU as of the end of this month. A 2019 model has been announced for North America and India, but seeing as Suzuki U.S. dealers have a fairly significant backlog of unsold ’17 and ’18 models to unload, there can’t be too many more slated to come down the pipeline. Fortunately, there are plenty of used ‘busas out there to dissect for that bike-engined-car project you’ve been scheming about.
Last Call indicates the end of Redusernab’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.
