Suzuki Hayabusa goes stereophonic

Stereophonics rock band musician, Richard Jones, has added a second Suzuki to his garage, as the bass guitarist for the chart-topping Welsh group, took delivery of a brand-new Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa last week.

Jones, who only last year opted for a Suzuki B-King, to use for regular visits to the recording studio, decided to add the legendary Hayabusa to his garage after moving out of London and into the country.

"The B-King is a fantastic tool and great fun around London, but now I need to cover much longer distances there was only one choice for me", said Jones. "The Hayabusa has such a reputation, and it’s just one of those bikes that everyone should ride at some point. In fact, if I’m being completely honest, the longer distances are a bit of an excuse really. Just don’t tell the wife!"

With a power output of nearly 200bhp, the Hayabusa is one of the fastest production machines on the planet, and has been the chosen weapon of choice for several official top-speed record attempts, since the original launch 11 years ago. Completely redeveloped in 2007, the Hayabusa has remained at the top of the hyper-sports tree and continues to maintain its legendary reputation.

The Stereophonics will be playing live later this year at the summer festivals.
