The fourth international meeting of the Hayabusa Club Marbella will see almost a hundred riders from Spain and further afield descend on Puerto Banus.
Riders from Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, France, Portugal and Switzerland will take in six routes covering an impressive 650 kilometres.
The Hayabusa Club Marbella was founded by club president Gregory Korvin in 2013.
Hayabusa is Japanese for “peregrine falcon” and is the world’s fastest production bike with a top speed of 188 to 194 miles per hour (303 to 312 km/h).
In particular, the Suzuki’s choice of name was made because the peregrine falcon preys on blackbirds, which reflected the intent of the original Hayabusa to unseat the Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird as the world’s fastest production motorcycle.
Our photographer caught up with the riders as they took a breakfast stop at Venta El Madroño on the San Pedro to Ronda road on Saturday morning.
