It has a taller, more top-heavy feel than either the Honda or Suzuki, but after a few miles you just don’t notice. It also has the snappiest, quickest-revving engine, producing power sort of how one might expect a supernatural 750cc engine would–the 1199cc mill makes the most peak ponies by 3.6 bhp over the ’Busa, but only at the very top of its rev range. Lower down, the Suzuki makes more power sooner. The 1299cc Hayabusa also makes more torque, some 8 foot-pounds up at peak, while offering at least that much more twist from 3500 to 8500 rpm–right where it counts. Even after all these years, snapping the throttle open on the Hayabusa is still impressive, still incredible.
