Hayabusa for India

“We will launch the bike in the first week of September,” said Atul Gupta, vice-president of sales and marketing, Suzuki Motorcycle India. “The demand for big bikes is actually more of a hype."
“India is not the place for these bikes. We don’t have the roads like they have in developed countries for them and it is not fun to ride them at say 70 km per hour,” Gupta said. “We are nevertheless launching the Hayabusa because it will showcase our strength as a bike manufacturer. "
