With the Modi government slashing the duties on completely built imported bikes by 25 per cent, Suzuki has decided to pass on the benefits to consumers. The company has announced a price cut on its two super bikes, namley the Hayabusa and the GSX-R1000R.
The Suzuki Hayabusa will now be sold for Rs 13.59 lakh against its earlier price of Rs 13,87 lakh – a cut of Rs 28,000. The GSX-R1000R has got a significant price cut and will be sold for Rs 19.8 lakh against its earlier price tag of Rs 22 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom).
Interestingly, Hayabusa is actually a completely knocked down kit model (CKD) and not a completely built imported bike. However, Suzuki decided to slash the price of the bike as duty on some parts like engine have been slashed by India to 25 per cent from 30 per cent.
Currently Suzuki sells Hayabusa, V-Storm 1000, GSX R1000R, GSX-R1000 ABS, GSX-S1000 ABS and GSX-S1000F ABS superbikes in India.
