Famed for its abundant power, agility and majestic presence. Legendary for establishing new levels of ultimate sport performance, and for retaining the number one position for the past two decades in the class it created.
Fast forward to today. Total commitment and tireless effort give birth to a new generation perfectly poised to carry riders boldly into the future. Its further enhanced riding experience features even smoother power delivery and nimbler handling, a collection of the latest electronic systems designed to optimize performance characteristics and make the Hayabusa more controllable and predictable, as well as unshakeable reliability. And it wraps all this in a package that will instantly turn heads with its breathtaking style and grace.
SDMS-α for a smarter, surer ride
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector Alpha (SDMS-α) groups together five advanced electronic control systems while enabling riders to select individual settings for each. It optimizes performance characteristics and behavior to best suit varying road surfaces, riding conditions and preferred riding styles. Experiment with the different settings and benefit from the feedback each offers to hone your riding skills and build greater confidence while enjoying the ultimate riding experience. In addition to three factory presets, (A, B, C), SDMS-α offers a choice between three user-defined groups of settings (U1, U2, U3). Modes and settings can be changed using switches on the left handlebar and the current settings are displayed on the TFT LCD panel located in the center of the instrument cluster.
A 6-axis, Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) combines accelerometers and gyroscopes in a single compact package that constantly monitors pitch (forward or backward tilt), roll (leaning from side to side), and yaw (turning in relation to initial direction). These measurements are compared against one another as well as readings from wheel speed sensors to keep the Hayabusa aware of its situation at all times and realize several of the advanced S.I.R.S. controls.
1 Power Mode Selector
Select between three different engine output modes that control power delivery to match road and riding conditions. Mode 1 provides the sharpest throttle response and delivers maximum power. It’s a solid choice for the experienced rider out for a sporty run. Mode 2 provides softer throttle response and more linear power delivery. That makes it a practical mode for daily riding. Mode 3 provides the softest throttle response and features a more gentle power curve with reduced maximum output. It’s well suited to riding on wet or slippery roads, or while still getting used to the potential of the Ultimate Sport Bike.
2 Anti-lift Control system
Suzuki has successfully developed an advanced system that maximizes acceleration performance while preventing the front wheel from lifting off the ground. The system offers a choice of 10 mode settings when turned on, with Mode 1 providing minimal control and Mode 10 making it virtually impossible to lift the front wheel, even when fully opening the throttle with a passenger on the back.
3 Bi-directional Quick Shift System
Shift up or down more quickly and easily without the need to operate the clutch or throttle. Quick Shift offers two modes. Mode 1 reacts more quickly to replicate racing-style response, while Mode 2 offers a lighter touch. To ensure smooth shift action when using Quick Shift, the ECM retards ignition when accelerating or maintaining steady speed and opens the throttle valve when decelerating. Performance of the new assist & slipper®* clutch ensures even smoother shifts.

4 Engine Brake Control system
This system cancels out the effect of engine braking to suppress rear tire sliding or skipping and provide smoother, more controllable behavior. A choice of three modes plus an OFF setting let you control the effective strength of engine braking to match riding conditions or your preference.
5 Motion Track Traction Control System
This takes traction control to a new level by employing data from the IMU to constantly monitor the amount of lean angle and effectively limit slip in corners as well as on straightaways. It provides greater stability at all times, enabling confident control in varying riding conditions while reducing stress and fatigue. The system offers a choice of 10 mode settings, and it can be turned off when preferred. The higher number the mode, the faster traction control is engaged and the more proactive the system is in limiting wheel spin.
Note: The Motion Track Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
