Can Suzuki Hayabusa Beat the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ in a Drag Race?
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is one of the most powerful and fastest in the Aventador lineup. It’s a track-focused supercar, which means it’s on an extensive diet to lose weight. But how does it compare to a superbike like the Suzuki Hayabusa?
The 2022 Suzuki Hayabusa, also known as the GSX-1300RR, is now entering its third generation. It cuts power compared to its predecessor while also gaining a bit of weight in the process. But given the competition here, does it really matter? Let’s check the statistics to see their difference in black and white.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is powered by a remanufactured 6.5-liter V12 engine capable of 759 horsepower (566 kilowatts) and 531 pound-feet (720 Newton-meters) of torque, sent to all four wheels. With air conditioning and other convenient items considered, it weighs 3,362 pounds (1,525 kilograms) dry. Prior to the Aventador Ultimae, it was the fastest Aventador in the lineup with a top speed of 219 miles per hour (352 kilometers per hour).
With a lineage once hailed as the fastest production bike, the current third-generation Hayabusa uses a 1,340cc inline-four engine. Also reworked for this iteration, the engine now makes 190 hp (140 kW) and 110 lb-ft (150 Nm) of torque sent to the rear wheels. Removing the roof, two wheels, and seat, the Hayabusa weighs just 582 lbs (264 kg).
It’s hard to gauge which one will actually win just by looking at the numbers. There’s also a matter of skill, which is quite important, especially when launching a superbike.
