Suzuki have revealed two new factory-built special editions motorcycles for the UK market – the 2014 Hayabusa GSX1300RZ and the GSX-R750Z.
The new special edition GSX1300RZ Hayabusa features a host of aesthetic highlights, including a special red and black two-tone paint scheme and seat, as well as gold-anodised fork caps, adjusters, steering stem-nut and chain adjusters. Black Brembo calipers with red lettering complete the look, to help buyers of this legendary hyperbike stand out from the crowd.
The second offering is the 2014 GSX-R750Z special edition. Taking similar design cues as the Hayabusa, the GSX-R750Z boasts a unique red and black livery and a red seat. Like the Hayabusa, it also receives silver Brembo monobloc calipers with red lettering, dark gold-anodised steering stem-nut, chain adjusters and front forks, with red anodised fork caps and adjusters.
Pricing of both the Hayabusa and Gixxer special editions have been kept the same.
