That’s right, the Suzuki Hayabusa 25th Anniversary model will be available in the French market only…

Suzuki France once again celebrates one of its famous models. A special edition has been released to celebrate his 25th anniversary of the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa.

This is his third special edition from Suzuki France in recent weeks (following his previously reported GSX-S1000 SERT and V-Strom 800 DE editions). Without a word from Suzuki UK, it looks just like that, this again, only applies to riders on the other side of the channel.

Like the other bikes above, the new 25th Anniversary Hayabusa is all about the look and exclusivity of the machine while keeping the internal specs and features the same as the production bike. But it’s a striking look and probably most drivers’ only chance to own a factory-painted bright orange vehicle.

Aside from the paint job, there are some small Easter eggs hidden around the bike. Most obvious is his 25th anniversary decal on the airbox cover. Elsewhere, the bike is outfitted with an exhaust muffler laser-etched with a distinctive falcon logo for everyone to see. The chain guide on the other side is also engraved with “Kanji” by laser etching, and the chain adjuster and front brake disc are also gold anodized. Completing the new Anniversary Special is a bespoke seat that matches the new look of the bike.

As stated above, this is a French-market bike, and even those on the other side of the channel will have to move quickly to get one as just 25 are being produced. It’s priced at €19,799, or around £17,000.
