A CUT ABOVE

Forged to perfection and polished to a magnificent radiance. Engineered to provide maximum control and optimum performance. Finely crafted to take riding pleasure to a new level. The Suzuki KATANA is destined to create a new legend.

FORGING A NEW STREET 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.

HAGANE - FORGED 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.

OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

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. Fired by the same spirit, Suzuki’s development team tested and tuned each component to create a compact, lightweight chassis that is engineered to provide agility, ease of control and a fun-to-ride character.

GREAT ROAD HOLDING PERFORMANCE

The twin-spar aluminium alloy frame is engineered to provide nimble handling and great road holding performance. The frame’s main tubes are designed to run straight from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. This is ideal for achieving both high rigidity and low weight. Designed using the latest FEM analysis technology, the frame weighs about the same as the current GSX-R1000.

BREMBO RADIAL BRAKES

Brembo radial mount monobloc front brake calipers are mated with 310mm floating-mount dual discs to provide powerful braking performance. Each caliper has four opposing 32mm pistons. The front brake calipers are same type used on the current GSX-R1000. The Antilock Brake System monitors wheel speed 50 times per wheel rotation, and matches stopping power to available traction. The ABS control unit, produced by BOSCH is compact and light weight.

 

KIWAMI - THE HEIGHT OF EXCELLENCE

The KATANA symbolises Suzuki’s uncompromising commitment to craftsmanship. Suzuki’s dedication to creating distinctive beauty includes paying due respect to tradition while at the same time aiming to incorporate the latest advances in technology.

 

KIRU - THE DECISIVE CUT

The sharp, cutting-edge style of the Suzuki KATANA. The Japanese KATANA is beautiful to gaze upon and unbelievably exciting to wield. The epitome of fine craftsmanship, the famed KATANA combines sophisticated Japanese aesthetics and pure beauty into a sharp design. The KATANA was developed to be a sporty styled street motorcycle that takes lean, mean retro flair and evolves it to offer thoroughly modern styling and performance.
