Translated, Hayabusa is Japanese for “peregrine falcon” — a chook of prey that tops 200 mph to snag a snack. Launched in 1999, the Suzuki Hayabusa did its namesake justice. Depending on whom you imagine, the large dual-overhead cam, 1300cc inline-four churned out upwards of one hundred seventy hp. That was sufficient to launch the 500-pound ‘Busa throughout the ¼ mile mark in single digits and demolish the old top velocity document, hitting 186 mph. The Desmosedici RR is commonly considered the ultimate Ducati experience, a mechanically and aesthetically trustworthy replica of a real MotoGP racer.
