The new-gen Hayabusa commands a price tag of ₹16.40 lakh (ex-showroom, India) which makes it ₹2.65 lakh costlier than its predecessor.
With the latest update, the Hayabusa has transformed into a completely new bike altogether. This is the third-generation bike which comes after a long wait as previously it was updated back in 2008 when the second-gen model took the torch from the original Hayabusa (1999).
