NEWSTREET LEGEND From the sharp lines defining the length of its body to the performance of its 150PS engine, every detail of the Suzuki KATANA speaks of distinctive beauty. While its design cues pay due homage to the 1981 iconic GSX1100S KATANA, which stole the hearts of riders around the world, the KATANA is a thoroughly modern machine that is breathtaking to behold and inspiring to ride.
HAGANEFORGED PERFECTION At the heart of the KATANA’s powerful performance is a custom long-stroke version of the legendary fuel-injected 999cc inline-four engine that first proved itself on the GSX-R1000K5. Its broad torque output range combines with a new throttle control that delivers this power smoothly. Both the induction roar and exhaust note are tuned to heighten the visceral sense of riding pleasure, while also contributing to performance and combustion efficiency.
OPTIMALPERFORMANCE Japanese swordsmiths devote countless hours to repeatedly forge, hammer, fold the raw steel to achieve the right balance needed for the blade to perform optimally.
