Suzuki Motorcycles will reveal its new Hayabusa sportsbike at its virtual event on February 5, a recent teaser video has confirmed.

A short video published today shows the new Suzuki Hayabusa travelling in excess of 300km/h, and while it stopped short of unveiling the new model, the clip did confirm some details.

Critically, a shot of the dash reveals that the new high-capacity sportsbike features a modern electronics package with lean-angle sensitive traction control, power modes and wheelie control, among other features.

While the bike in the video wears familiar Hayabusa styling cues, there are clearly a number of changes made including a restyled tail-light setup with a narrow LED light bar.

As the Busa will have to move over to Euro5 standards, we can at least expect a new intake and exhaust system to improve efficiency and emissions, though we will have to wait until February 5 to discover any other performance modifications.

With conventional motor shows postponed for the foreseeable future, Suzuki Motorcycles has developed a digital platform that allows fans to view 3D models of its products on a PC or smartphone.

Using this platform, Suzuki is hosting a digital show from February 5, where it will reveal new models, including the all-new Hayabusa.

“It enables [users] to view display motorcycles just as if they were at an actual showroom or watch the unveiling of new motorcycle models just as they would when attending a live motor show,” the company said in a statement.

“They can even use it to consult with Suzuki dealer staff in your countries.”

In Australia, the 2020 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa is priced from $18,990 rideaway, and retains the well-known 1340cc inline four-cylinder engine delivering 145kW (195hp) and 155Nm.

Some have speculated that the next-generation Hayabusa will use a 1440cc motor, however, there has been no official details confirming the new bike’s powertrain.
