The bike is clearly based on a base-line [[wp:Suzuki Hayabusa|2008–present Suzuki Hayabusa]]; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features Kanji letter "死" (translated as "death") on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's Kanji "隼" (referring to the "[[wp:Peregrine Falcon|Peregrine Falcon]]") on its body.
   
Despite its bulky design, the bike performs relatively well, with similar performance traits as the [[Bati 800]], [[Bati Custom]] and [[Double T]] (with a top speed of 155 kmph, a weight of 250 kg, 50 kg lighter than any chopper, and stiffer suspensions) but featuring improved acceleration.
+
Similarly, the Hakuchou's name "hakuchou" ([[:wp:ja:ハクチョウ|ハクチョウ]]) is "[[wp:swan|swan]]" in Japanese, is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird ([[:wp:ja:ハヤブサ|ハヤブサ]]). The term "hakuchou" in Kanji is 白鳥 (white bird) or simply くぐい(鵠), both means swan.

DesignEdit

Haku badges

The bike is clearly based on a base-line 2008–present Suzuki Hayabusa; in addition to similarities in its body design, the Hakuchou also features Kanji letter "死" (translated as "death") on both sides of the body, in a similar manner to the Hayabusa's Kanji "隼" (referring to the "Peregrine Falcon") on its body.

Similarly, the Hakuchou's name "hakuchou" (ハクチョウ) is "swan" in Japanese, is a reference to the decision to name the Hayabusa after a bird (ハヤブサ). The term "hakuchou" in Kanji is 白鳥 (white bird) or simply くぐい(鵠), both means swan.

PerformanceEdit

The Hakuchou is depicted as a beefier, more powerful sports bike compared to the Bati 801, with a bulky body shell and frame that implies the bike is also tailored for comfort. Because of it's heavy weight, this bike is amazingly stable and almost never bounces on any bad-condition roads.

Despite its bulky design, the bike performs relatively well, with similar performance traits as the Bati 801, Bati 801RR and Double T (with a top speed of 155 kmph, a weight of 250 kg, 50 kg lighter than any chopper, and stiffer suspensions) but featuring improved acceleration.
