Diving off downtown's J.P. Morgan Chase Building, the peregrine falcon, with its 3-foot wingspan and hyper-precise vision, is an airborne predator that awes office workers and military pilots alike.

Again Nothing here even remotly related to the Hayabusa

History

[edit] 1999

GSX1300R instrument panelThe name Hayabusa translates directly from the Japanese for Peregrine Falcon, the bird capable of achieving speeds over 200 mph – and predator of (perhaps not coincidently) the common blackbird. When introduced in 1999, it overtook the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the fastest production motorcycle. The first generation of the Hayabusa was called the GSX1300R and was powered by a 1299 cc inline-4 liquid-cooled engine. It remained relatively unchanged up through the 2007 model year.

The motorcycle in stock form is capable of the following performance:

1/4 mile (402 m): 10.02 seconds @ 143.7 mph (231.3 km/h)[2]
60–80 mph: 3.13 seconds[2]
80–100 mph: 3.31 seconds[2]
Top speed: 189.6 mph[2]
Power: 156.1 hp (116.4 kW) @ 9,500 rpm[citation needed]

yep and again there is no article in the Chronicle regarding the Hayabusa... yes i where the name comes from This thread is misleading it should be in the Other Topic section the article is about the Bird flying around Downtown not the bike it does not even reference the Bike once.. If your intent was to point this artivle out on haw it relates to a Bike you should state that...

Again "hayabusa" in the chronicle under General Discussion (Moto Related) if you state Falcon in the Chronile ...

Also there is no History given on this Bird just fluff on why a few are Downtown

I was simply poining out that the falcon was on the front page of the chronicle and the history of the suzuki hayabusa was named of said falcon. Not the history of the bird itself. It was just info to let people that don't know the origin of the hayabusa name. Apperantly i will have to explain in more detail for ya next time and to type slower
later
I am amazed that no matter what a person post SOMEONE will slam it and
