The New Suzuki Katana | 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.
From the sharp lines and highlights defining the length of its body to the rider-friendly performance of its 110kW (150PS) engine, every detail of the Suzuki KATANA speaks of distinctive beauty. While its design cues pay due homage to the iconic 1981 GSX1100S KATANA, which stole the hearts of riders around the world, the new KATANA is a thoroughly modern machine that is breathtaking to behold and inspiring to ride.
Long-stroke 999cc engine
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. Producing 110kW (150PS) @10,000rpm with 108Nm of torque @9,500rpm putting the power to the ground through a back-torque limiting clutch. State-of-the-art technology provides ultimate efficiency, combined with it's addictive induction noise, makes every ride, a sheer exciting one.
The exhaust system looks clean and more importantly delivers an exciting exhaust note. The 4-into-2-into-1 system includes equaliser pipes between the 1-4 and 2-3 header pipes. It is a design that fine-tunes the exhaust pressure waves, thereby contributing to stronger low-to-mid range output. The system has an exhaust chamber after the joint section, which is carefully shaped to fit under the engine. The exhaust chamber helps minimise the muffler size, giving the rear section a cleaner, more agile look.
KATANA themed LCD instrument cluster
The full LCD brightness-adjustable instrument cluster packs a wide range of useful information into a relatively compact form factor. It is also designed to make the readouts from its multiple functions easy to recognise.
The panel features a custom display with graphics exclusive to the KATANA with white lettering on a black background.
The black and grey two-tone seat features a stepped design that maintains the sleek profile of the KATANA while ensuring a comfortable riding position and positive footing for the rider. Passenger comfort is also a priority, with the seat strap design ensuring secure grip.
Clean tail section
The KATANA introduces a small rear fender supported by the swingarm that hugs the rear tyre. Moving it, along with the rear LED indicators and license plate holder, to this position eliminates parts extending from under the seat to give the tail section cleaner lines and a tougher, lighter new look.
