More high-tech than ever. Since Suzuki released a teaser confirming the impending introduction of the new Hayabusa for 2021, there's been speculation about how many updates the supersport would receive. While early reports regarding the updates were relatively modest, as we neared the debut, they got increasingly bolder with talks of a new engine and output increase. The new 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa debuted on February 5, 2021, and we finally got an answer to all of our questions. So, how much has changed on the new Suzuki Hayabusa? Actually, quite a few things. Inside and Out The most obvious update is, of course, the design. That much we already knew. A few days prior to the official unveiling, the model's launch video leaked on the internet, offering us our first glimpse of its new aesthetic changes. Suzuki adds that the new design allows the Hayabusa to offer "one of the best drag coefficients achieved by any motorcycle".

VW’s Voltswagen debacle was no laughing matter to authorities. Volkswagen's renaming stunt late last month has drawn the eye of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, according to a new Der Spiegel report. The agency has opened an investigation into the company to determine if VW's poorly executed April Fools' Day joke announcing it would change its name to Voltswagen affected its stock price. Details about the investigation are scarce at the moment, though the company did confirm to the German publication that the US agency had requested information from its subsidiary Volkswagen Group of America (VWoA), and it is cooperating with authorities.

A day later, on … [Read more...] about It’s Official: Volkswagen Under SEC Investigation Over Renaming Stunt
Dunlop spent the last decade supplying tyres to just the Nakajima Honda squad in GT500 following SARD Lexus’ switch to Michelin (and later Bridgestone) in 2011, severely compromising its ability to develop and test new tyres vis-a-vis the other three manufacturers in the class. Off the back of an improved showing in recent years, another Honda squad Mugen entered into an agreement to race on Dunlop rubber from 2021, ending its four-year relationship with Yokohama. However, Dunlop isn’t content with partnering just two teams in the top category and is looking at ways it can build capacity for another car, even if that means reducing its presence in the G300 class where it currently supplies tyres to five cars from four different manufacturers. “We want at least one [more] team,” Dunlop Japan's motorsport department manager Yasuda told Motorsport.com. “But any more than that would start to give us capacity problems. So, we need to think about that. [Seven cars across … [Read more...] about Dunlop aiming to attract third GT500 team in Super GT
