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.

HEART OF KATANA

A long-stroke design with a 73.4mm bore and a 59.0mm stroke allows the combustion chambers to be compact. It therefore allows a combination of an optimal compression ratio, a flat-top piston shape, and a broad spread of power throughout the rev range. Advances inside the engine begin with the pistons. Suzuki used finite-element-analysis techniques to make the pistons light without compromising their rigidity. The benefits include broad torque and quick acceleration.

Cam profiles optimise the valve timing to achieve power characteristics that are ideally suited to city streets and twisty suburban roads. Iridium spark plugs ensure strong sparks for efficient combustion that translates into higher power, linear throttle response, easier engine start up, and stable idling.

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.
