Candy Indy Blue / Pearl Nebular Black

Metallic Phantom Gray / Pearl Nebular Black

Pearl Mirage White / Metallic Mistic Silver

These are the specifications for the 2nd generation Suzuki Hayabusa. Released in  October 2007 as a 2008 or K8 model. Specifications have been derived from the owners manual, ownership experience and Suzuki press.

I'm calling this the 2nd generation Hayabusa because this is the most significant change since the original model in 1999.
