Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Vs. Suzuki Hayabusa Ends In Humiliation – But For Whom?

The Suzuki Hayabusa is one of the fastest superbikes money can buy. It has the reputation of obliterating supercars with considerable ease and, over the years, has built up a very solid name for itself.

This example seems to be from the first generation, which means that its 1.3-liter inline-four produces 173 hp, thus giving it some very dizzying acceleration and top speed. It also has some stickers that may or may not suggest different aftermarket mods, so surely a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk stands no chance against it, right?

As it turns out, the super SUV not only stood a chance, but ended up beating the Hayabusa. Normally, we wouldn’t have spoiled the result, but it’s not every day that we see what seems to be a superbike being put in its corner by a car – and an SUV at that. We don’t know if the Trackhawk sports any modifications, but if it doesn’t, then there’s something very wrong with this Hayabusa, or maybe its rider.

The 707 horsepower Jeep of course is no slouch, as in stock form it needs 11.6 seconds to run the quarter-mile. The 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) acceleration takes 3.5 seconds and top speed is 204 mph (328 km/h). This impressive performance allows it to do battle with some expensive blue-blooded machines, such as the McLaren 570S, which it managed to beat into submission – and you can watch that video here, after you’re finished viewing the one right below.

    If the biker had eaten a salad instead of pie, he would have won.

      ooooh im such a big shot because i comment about people’s weight behind a keyboard

      • TheAmerican2point0

        Ever hear of a joke?

      • Sorry but if you are going to ride superbikes, get fit! Otherwise take your seat in the Jeep…

    • JGreen

      True, but it’s possible the driver of the Jeep weighed just as much or more.

      • TheBelltower

        It was a joke

  • Callanish

    No way would the 570S, that can run a 10.27 quarter mile, lose to the Trackhawk if that driver knew how to do a standing start, and based on that head to head video with the Jeep, they didn’t.

    Hello? THAT is what a RACE is all about. It’s the you-never-really-know factor that makes it exciting. NOTHING is for sure. There are so many variables at play. Especially when one or both vehicles are HIGHLY dependent on driver skill.

    • brn

      Driver skill has an impact on a race? Shut your mouth!

      • Craig

        Obviously not everyone thinks so.

        • brn

          It’s a good thing that it still requires skill. Otherwise it’s just a matter of who hires the most expensive lawyers, um I mean buys the more expensive car.
