The Suzuki KATANA is destined to create a new legend.
From the sharp lines and highlights defining the length of its body to the rider-friendly performance of its long-stroke engine, every detail of the Suzuki KATANA speaks of distinctive beauty. It’s design cues pay due homage to the iconic 1981 GSX1100S KATANA.
Powered by a 999cc water-cooled, inline-four cylinder engine producing 150PS @10,000rpm with 108Nm of torque @9,500rpm putting the power to the ground through a back-torque limiting clutch. The engine features a long-stroke design with a 73.4mm bore and 59.0mm stroke resulting in a broad power range delivered smoothly across the entire rev range.
The compact, lightweight twin spar aluminum chassis is engineered to provide agility and ease of control. 43mm KYB inverted front forks give a ride that is sporty yet plush. A single KYB rear shock features adjustable rebound damping and spring pre-load.
3-Mode traction control provides greater confidence and reduces fatigue by delivering control over engine output that helps prevent rear wheel spin.
The vertically-stacked LED headlight and front position lights accent the sharp lines of the front cowling and are matched with LED turn signals and an LED tail light unit .
