Suzuki Hayabusa and Yamaha R6 found abandoned in Thane

The bikes could have been seized by the DRI during a crackdown on illegally imported superbikes.

A red Suzuki Hayabusa and a Yamaha R6 were found abandoned at an RTO in Thane. The bikes could have been seized by the DRI during a crackdown on illegally imported superbikes. Other superbikes, including a Yamaha R1, were seized and are now lying in a poor state.

The Hayabusa is one of the most popular superbikes in the country. It is powered by a 1,300cc in-line 4-cylinder engine and is considered to be one of the fastest motorcycles in the world, with a top speed in excess of 300 km/h. The motorcycle shot to fame in India after actor John Abraham rode the bike in the movie Dhoom.

Along with the Hayabusa, the images also show a Yamaha R6 covered in dust. Although the R6 was never officially sold in the Indian market, it did have quite a following. Yamaha discontinued the road-going version of the R6 recently, replacing it with the YZF-R7 model which was unveiled last month. The Yamaha R6 is, however, available internationally for track-only use.
