When Suzuki engineers began designing the GSX1300R they set out to produce a motorcycle so advanced that it didn’t fit in any established categories. A motorcycle with breathtaking acceleration, nimble handling, and world-class fit and finish. A machine so advanced it demanded a new performance category: Ultimate Sport. With Suzuki’s experience in building high-performance motorcycles, meeting the engine performance goals and building an excellent chassis wouldn’t be a problem. But to make this kind of performance seem effortless would be the ultimate challenge. One of the engineers recalled seeing the incredible flight of a small Falcon indigenous to Japan called Hayabusa. The Hayabusa is not the biggest or strongest bird in Japan, but it has the amazing ability to slice through the air reaching speeds of over 186 mph, making normal flight seem effortless. The engineer realized he had discovered the key element to the design. Make the bike able to slice through the air like a Hayabusa and normal performance would be almost effortless. It would be the most aerodynamic Suzuki ever built and it would be called the Hayabusa. Suzuki engineers used an integrated design approach with careful thought given to engine type, size, placement, as well as rider position and airflow over every part of the bike. Maximum aerodynamic efficiency required a precise fairing shape which could not be achieved with conventional headlights and turn signals. By blending the front turn signals in the fairing and using a unique projector beam headlight, the CdA became the lowest of any Suzuki ever produced. The turn signals also help force air into the ram-air intake tracts which have been carefully placed near the point of maximum air pressure. Meeting the performance goal required a powerful yet compact, liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine – the most powerful four-cylinder ever built by Suzuki. Based on experience from unlimited-class road racing, the engine developed some impressive specifications: 1298cc, liquid-cooled with additional oil-jet cooling, DOHC 16-valves with a narrow 14º valve angle, electronic fuel injection with ram-air intake, direct ignition, gear-driven counterbalancer to reduce vibration and a six-speed transmission with a large capacity clutch. To keep the engine compact the cam chain is driven from the right side of a short, five-journal crankshaft. The GSX1300R chassis is built around an aluminum alloy twin-spar frame and bridged aluminum swingarm. Supporting the frame are fully adjustable, 43mm inverted forks with 120 mm of wheel travel, and a link-type rear suspension with a fully adjustable shock absorber and 140mm of wheel travel. Wide radial tires are mounted on cast aluminum wheels provide plenty of traction, while six-piston front brake calipers with large 320 mm rotors and a twin-piston rear caliper with a 240 mm rotor provide powerful braking performance. The Hayabusa has many other convenience features such as a hinged fuel tank for easier maintenance, storage area for a U-lock and full instrumentation including a fuel gauge, twin-tripmeters, and even a LCD-type fuel consumption gauge. With all these features and outstanding performance, the 1999 GSX1300R Hayabusa is truly in a class of its own: Ultimate Sport.
MSRP: $13,999 The Suzuki Hayabusa is a machine so dominant, that it created an entirely new category of motorcycle in the industry – Ultimate Sport. With performance credentials that have established it as the most exciting sportbike on the planet, it's designed for serious sport riders who will settle for nothing less than the best. If that's you, and if you choose to ride the Hayabusa, you'll be rewarded with a riding experience you'll never forget. Its combination of unsurpassed power, crisp handling and superb aerodynamics creates the ultimate sport bike. For 2012, the Hayabusa is available with new graphics and colors - Glass Sparkle Black, Pearl Glacier White and limited edition Candy Sonoma Red. TOP 10 FEATURES The Hayabusa is equipped with a 1340cc, in-line, DOHC liquid-cooled engine with 16-valves, and Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers (TSCC) for eﬃcient, powerful acceleration and top end performance. The Hayabusa’s engine is fed via Suzuki’s Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel injection system uses engine-computer-operated secondary valves to maintain optimum intake-air velocity for maximum combustion eﬃciency. Two 12-hole ﬁne-spray injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion eﬃciency and while reducing fuel consumption. Lightweight aluminum alloy pistons with a compression ratio of 12.5:1 are used for maximum performance in all conditions with stunning acceleration and top end power. Hard, smooth chrome-nitride Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating on the upper compression and oil control rings on each piston reduces friction while improving cylinder sealing. Lightweight titanium valves allow the use of light valve springs and high lift while maintaining accurate valve control. Iridium spark plugs are used for high combustion eﬃciency and consistent performance. The Hayabusa comes with an constant mesh 6-speed transmission, with close gear ratios for outstanding performance. Oil spray to the 4th, 5th and 6th gears reduces wear and mechanical noise during highway cruising. Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) serves as a back-torque-limiting system for smooth downshifts and also contributes to a light clutch pull. A lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminum frame minimizes weight while maintaining high torsional strength, and is designed to allow a compact riding position for exceptional handling and control on the road. Rear subframe is made of rectangular steel tubing for suﬃcient weight carrying capacity. Lightweight Showa Big Piston front Fork (BPF) features a 37.6mm upper piston riding inside the 41mm fork tube. This endurance-race-proven design, along with a lightweight fully adjustable Showa rear shock, delivers more eﬀective, linear damping performance, resulting in better feedback to the rider for unmatched handling. A bridged aluminum alloy swingarm features a cross-sectional shape for increased rigidity, which improves rear tire grip and increases engine output. The Hayabusa’s fully adjustable rear shock absorber has a 43mm piston and 14mm rod diameter. Radial-mount Tokico front brake calipers oﬀer maximum braking performance using dual 310mm front brake rotors, resulting in reduced unsprung weight and improved handling. A lightweight single piston rear brake caliper works in conjunction with a 260mm rear brake disc. S-DMS (Suzuki Drive Mode Selector) allows the rider to choose from three diﬀerent engine settings, depending on riding conditions or rider preferences. For example, the rider can choose one map for tight, twisty roads and another for high-speed cruising.

USA Luge may also have a limited supply of used equipment available in various conditions. Q: How much does luge equipment cost? A: Prices for used luge equipment can vary depending on condition. A price guideline for new equipment is as follows: Sled: $800-$1,000 Racing suit: $100-$350 Luge Shoes: $165-$250 Racing gloves: $25-$50 Spikes: $30-$45 Face shield: $35-$45 Helmet with face shield: $250-325 Q: Do I need to buy my own equipment? A: Generally, it is recommended that beginning athletes do not buy their own equipment. USA Luge has a supply of sleds and helmets to use for athletes that are just getting started in the sport. Once an athlete determines that they want to pursue a competitive career in luge, they can begin to think about purchasing their own equipment. Before any purchase; however, a coach should always be consulted first to assure proper sizing. Member, United States Olympic Committee If you would like to be an “Official Supplier” of USA Luge, contact our Marketing Department at ext. 104 U.S. Representative, Fédération Internationale de Luge de Course UNITED STATES LUGE ASSOCIATION 57 CHURCH STREET LAKE PLACID, NEW YORK 12946 WWW.USALUGE.ORG U.S. National Team Sled firstname.lastname@example.org PH: 518-523-2071 FX: 518-523-4106 coach before planning to purchase a sled. Most of the time a coach will recommend that first year athletes use USA Luge equipment before making the relatively large investment in their own sled. Luge Equipment and Costs The equipment used in luge is very similar from athlete to athlete, but it is also very “ customized” for each athlete to ensure proper fit and optimum performance. Q: What equipment is a luge athlete required to wear? A: Technically speaking, the only piece of equipment that an athlete is required to wear, according to the international rules, is a helmet. There are several other pieces of equipment that sliders wear during training and competition that must meet a specified set of criteria, but nothing else is actually stipulated in the rules as “required”. Q: Where can I get a sled? A: Luge sleds are very specialized pieces of equipment. There are only a precious few manufacturers around the world that sell sleds on the “open” market. Most internationally competitive nations construct their own sleds for use by their National Team athletes, including the United States. In their attempt to gain a competitive advantage over the competition, these sleds generally contain state-of-the-art technology developed by each nation. Of course, these sleds are never available for sale to the general public because of the secretive technology involved. The main source for sleds on the “open market” is a company in Latvia, one of the former Soviet states. As you can imagine, the logistics of purchasing and shipping a sled from there can be cumbersome. Typically, an order for a sled should be submitted to this company in the spring in preparation for the coming season.

Touch the world. Build a better future.” “The 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup led to the construction of four new stadiums and saw football become the fastest-growing sport among Chile’s young women. The total attendance of more than 350,000, the interest of government and sponsors, and the high TV viewing ﬁgures show the long-term beneﬁts of our decision to bid.” Harold Mayne-Nicholls (President, Chilean Football Association) For more information see: www.FIFA.com The beneﬁts of hosting one of FIFA‘s other World Cups Infrastructure As with the main FIFA World Cup™, a visible beneﬁt of hosting one of the other FIFA competitions is the resulting improvement in a country’s infrastructure, which includes newly constructed or renovated stadiums, playing halls and training sites, as well as roads, transportation lines, hotels, airports and communication activities.

In addition, speciﬁc humanitarian projects can be launched such as the “20 Centres for 2010” campaign.
In every aspect of life, progress is constantly being made. This is also true in the construction and renovation of football stadiums, some of which have become modern day urban landmarks. Stadiums do not offer unrestricted space, though. These buildings, where every week, month and year thousands of people congregate, must fulfil particularly stringent criteria in terms of comfort, safety and security. Ever since the dark days of the 1980s, FIFA has taken up the question of safety in stadiums time and again in its quest to continuously improve the standards of football’s modern arenas. One major conclusion is more valid than ever: crowd safety and comfort are directly connected. Improved amenities lead to increased safety. Comfort means more space for each spectator, shorter routes to the exits, more entrance gates and exits, areas to gather in and areas for refreshments as well as public conveniences. Once all these factors have been taken into account, when there are no more fences and when most of the stadiums provide protection from the scorching sun or the pelting rain, when spectators can sit in peace instead of standing for hours, that is when we can expect to witness the desirable elements of a sports event, namely, a relaxed atmosphere, electrifying and exciting, but never hectic and aggressive. It is these principles that are yet again put forward in this Football Stadiums: Technical recommendations and requirements publication. A group of renowned experts from sport and the construction industry has successfully taken up the mission to not only make a mere “update” to the previous edition of this very important publication but to also provide a manual for a state-of-the-art approach in this area. I wish to thank them sincerely for their important contribution. They are making sure that the beautiful game is played in beautiful, comfortable and safe stadiums. Joseph S. Blatter FIFA President
