Despite doing his racing on a GSX-R1000, Guintoli has always expressed a fondness for the Hayabusa and the smoothness of its 1340cc, turbine-like engine. As a result, Suzuki has combined the two, with his third generation Hayabusa sporting the iconic red and black livery of Yoshimura-powered endurance machines.

To get himself more acquainted with the latest iteration of the Hayabusa, the French ace took it to a track day at Donington Park, mixing it with race bikes in the fast group.

After a full day’s riding, he said, “Firstly, the bike looks amazing, I have to thank Suzuki for this beautiful bike to celebrate our successes over the past few years. Out on track the Hayabusa is fantastic, the throttle response is so linear and power delivery is smooth, it inspires so much confidence to push harder! While this is a stock bike, the Hayabusa held its own here at Donington today.”

Guintoli won both the Le Mans 24-hour and the Bol d’Or with Suzuki in 2021, on his way to the world title with teammates Gregg Black and Xavier Simeon. The team also won the 2022 running the prestigious Le Mans 24-hour and currently lead the championship. His dedicated development work also helped Team Suzuki ECSTAR and Joan Mir take the 2020 MotoGP world championship.
