Vance & Hines and Suzuki Reveal New Hayabusa Bodywork at NHRA PSM Test Session

This is the first newly-designed bodywork for Suzuki NHRA race bikes since 2008.

Vance & Hines conducted on-track testing of new NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle (PSM) bodywork, designed to replicate the look of the newest generation of the Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle. The carbon fiber bodywork is going through NHRA’s extensive approval process with final approval expected in advance of the season’s first PSM race, the Gatornationals, in Gainesville, Florida, March 9-12.

The Vance & Hines/Mission/Suzuki NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Team, with riders Gaige Herrera and four-time NHRA Champion Eddie Krawiec, will campaign the new bodywork throughout the 2023 season. This is the first newly-designed bodywork for Suzuki NHRA race bikes since 2008.

Updates on testing along with video and images of the new-look Gen 3 Hayabusa race bike are available during the test session on Instagram at @VanceandHines, @SuzukiCycles, @eddie.krawiec and @gaigeherrera.
