This Wooden Suzuki Hayabusa Kit Looks Fiddly but Fun

A Japanese firm has created a very cute kit that allows you to replicate your Hayabusa in miniature form


Fancy squeezing in a nighttime activity as you wait for the weather to warm and the roads to dry out? This wooden Kigumi kit could be just the ticket.

Kigumi is the art of creating wooden sculptures, artwork, and more without using any kind of fixings or glue. Basically, the wooden parts used to create the object feature interlocking joints that semi-permanently join multiple parts together - think of it a bit like origami, only without the folding and 100 per cent made out of wood!

A Japanese firm has begun producing a kit aimed at fans of the iconic Suzuki Hayabusa, and it’s quite a cute thing to look at! The kit arrives as a flat sheet of laser-cut wooden pieces, each of which is numbered to allow you to follow the instructions when completing the model. It is fairly intricate though, and with what looks like a few hundred individual parts to pop out and find a home for, it might not be one for those less dainty fingers.

It’s even environmentally friendly, as the wood used for the model is sourced from FSC-certified forests, which means sustainable wood from a responsible source. 

Once completed the model measures 146.8mm long, 78mm high and 58mm wide. It’s cheap too, at just ¥3,080 (around £16) it's surely got to go down as the cheapest brand new ‘Busa you can buy - although they don’t ship outside of Japan so it would be an expensive shopping trip…
