    While Suzuki is all set to retire from closed circuit racing, seemingly for good this time around, they are not about to go quietly into the night. A special edition of their legendary hyperbike, the Hayabusa GP Edition, is set to be showcased at the Autolook Week Torino motor festival in Turin from September 7 to 11. Sharing the spotlight with this limited-edition bike will be other storied racing machines from the Hamamatsu-based marque such as their current GSX-RR MotoGP weapon and the multiple championship-winning RG500 two-stroke racer.

    Suzuki Hayabusa GP Edition: design and performance upgrades 

    Each unit of the Hayabusa GP Edition is finished resplendently in their MotoGP Suzuki-Ecstar racing livery, with one bearing the number 36 for 2020 MotoGP champion Joan Mir and the other bearing 42 for his current teammate, Alex Rins. Each bike features distinct red/yellow accents on the front fairing, rims, side fairings and the rear seat cowl as well.

    Suzuki has also done away with various road-going necessities such as headlights, turn indicators, mirrors and even the number-plate bracket. With the above changes making it unfit to be driven on public roads, Suzuki has fitted full-system exhausts from renowned specialist Akrapovic on each of the bikes. It is unclear as of now whether these will be one-off (actually two) special editions or will they spawn a production bike-based model run.
