    Suzuki Hayabusa Gen 3

    Another concept. And after the concepts we've seen before, I know. This doesn't look too bad though...

    Looks like a rejig of Gen 2 really.

    Be cool if a Gen 3 came out soon though
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    Actually looks okish, which is really breaking the mould.

    Not sure I'd want to navigate road to forecourt with that fairing chin. Results would be entirely predictable.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    I'd be tempted in a neo-Tokyo, Akira kind of way.

    Looking for ideas for my last new bike before retiring. Once that happens I won't be that bothered about the occasional temporary loss of licence. At least with the Busa you won't be pissing around arguing at the side of the road whether it was 103 or 105km/h.

    Why should a master cylinder looking old have to do with not having "proper brakes". and what prey tell are "proper brakes"?

    Something designed by Guy Martin perhaps?

    My only worry is that I am not as lithe as I was in my younger days and looking at the tank/seat interface I am not sure my beer and cheese and wine gut will fit.

    Pretty much what I've done - 73 next month. I wanted something light with a great power to weight ratio and ergonomically comfortable for an old geezer with stuffed knees. Ended up with a Duke 790 and laugh every time I go out on it. Suits my particular needs perfectly.

    Cheers! I went from a Blackbird to a Street Triple when I was 63 (loved it), then to a GSX-S 1000 which I found bland and uninvolving, then onto the Duke 790 which is just so much fun. That will probably be it. There may be a Lotus 7 replica in the future but it might be just sticking with our fishing boat. Never say never though

    Keen.

    Certainly be glad if they haven't canned the Hayabusa if I ever get to being able to spend that much on a bike again.

    according to Visdordown, Suzuki are going make an announcement on 5th October in lieu of ECIMA show going ahead

    https://www.visordown.com/news/new-b...hat-will-it-be

    the article does go on and squashes the Busa idea though but no harm in hoping:-)
