Hayate has a 8-liter fuel tank capacity. Both the front and the rear wheels are given drum brakes while the suspension system at the rear are 17-inch mags and adjustable rear shock absorbers.
The styling factor looks is not that impressive and resembles the Suzuki Sling Shot in a few portions. The rear portions also a few tints of Honda Glamour. Suzuki is aiming to sell the Hayate both in urban and rural markets and so we can expect good engine life and fuel efficiency which are the key aspects for a motorcycle to do volume sales in rural areas.
