The special parts supplier, Yoshimura took their debut victory in the 1978 Daytona 100-mile Race entering their Suzuki GS1000 equipped with a revolutionary exhaust system. Since then, Yoshimura has become famous around the globe by achieving repeated success as a fa-tory team.

In 1999, a racing machine version of the Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 (GSX1300R), developed by Yoshimura using unique state-of-the-art technology gleaned on the racetrack, was entered in the Suzuka 8 hour Race X Formula class. Yoshimura's machine took the victory in both the 1999 and 2000 of this class, in which a wide-range of modification is permitted on motorcycles of 750cc and over.

A replica of the Yoshimura Hayabusa X-1 was released on the open market in the year 2000 as a customized, street-legal bike. The Yoshimura version of the Hayabusa featured original cowling, and a revolutionary exhaust Tri-Oval Titanium Cyclone muffler, giving it a different appearance from the GSX1300R. Unlike the unique, vertically positioned headlights of the GSX1 300R, the headlights of the Yoshimura X-1 were modified into a level design with ram air ducts equipped on both sides.

The 1300cc liquid-cooled inline 4-cylinder engine was overhauled and incorporated special parts such as ported cylinder heads, mirror polished lightweight valves, high-camshafts and high-comp pistons. Front and rear suspension was reset to enable high-speed running.

Each of the 100 limited edition Hayabusa X-1 motorcycles were crafted one at a time, with the initials of the craftsman engraved on the cylinder head. It was no doubt that they were soon sold out after the initial announcement.
