Mind you, it takes much longer than expected for the Hayabusa’s exhaust to burst the balloons
The folks at Crazy XYZ have uploaded an off-beat video on their YouTube channel. They attach a ‘Monster Balloon’ to a Suzuki Hayabusa’s exhaust and try to blow it up. The Hayabusa is one of the most sought-after superbikes in India and we’ve seen people do quick sprints, top speed runs, etc. with it. But, testing the exhaust by blowing up a balloon? Well, that’s something intriguing and it caught our attention.
Those Are Some Huge Balloons
The host brings a few monster-sized balloons to attach to the Hayabusa’s exhaust. He rounds it up over the right-hand-side exhaust pipe and fires up the engine. The balloon starts to blow up, but it seems to be losing compression, with the host citing that the exhaust might have a hole somewhere that’s not creating enough pressure in the balloon. He revs the engine until the balloon grows bigger and bursts. It took tens of seconds, but it finally happened.
For the next round, he attached balloons on both the exhausts and revved the hell out of the poor engine. The one on the left-hand-side exhaust burst first since the right one had a hole and took time to fill up. The second one didn’t burst, but it opened up at the tip because of the heat generated by the exhaust. This was something we didn’t think we needed to know until now!
The Suzuki Hayabusa Is A Beast
Speaking of the Suzuki Hayabusa, this was the previous-gen GSX1300 R model. The bike became a household name after featuring in the first installment of the ‘Dhoom’ series.
The bike comes with a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 194 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 155 Nm of torque at 7,200 rpm.
The top speed is rated at 312 kph.
The third-generation Hayabusa was launched a couple of months back and it received polarizing opinions for its looks. It is powered by the same engine as the second-gen superbike, but makes seven horses and five Nm of torque fewer. It also comes with a smaller fuel tank – 14.9 liters vs 17.6 liters on the second-gen bike.
