I was just wondering the character shown in image is Japanese or not. If yes then can you please tell me the meaning of it.

    I'd agree with what others are saying: it looks very much like a stylistic 隼(はやぶさ). In fact, here's a screen dump of the image with JWPce showing the Kanji detail next to it: taylorj.org.uk/images/Hayabusa.png – Jamie Taylor Jun 18 '12 at 12:04

Could it be 隼(はやぶさ)- falcon? Pretty certain about the top part, less sure about the bottom.

I have a feeling it says the same as the romaji directly below it, painted on the side of the bike: http://www.suzukicycles.com/Product%20Lines/Cycles/Products/Hayabusa/2012/GSX1300R.aspx

The literal meaning can be looked up in any of the dictionaries listed on our resources page, like this for example.
