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.
Japanese swordsmiths devote countless hours to repeatedly forging, hammering, folding and welding raw steel to achieve the right balance needed for the blade to perform optimally. This process is absolutely critical in achieving the desired result. Fired by the same spirit, Suzukiâ€™s development team tested and tuned each component time and again until they were satisfied the KATANA would deliver the optimal balance of power, comfort and control.
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.
Three-mode traction control system: This track-bred technology provides greater confidence and reduces fatigue by delivering control over engine output that helps prevent rear wheel spin. The system operates so smoothly and naturally that it does not interfere with handling, even when the rider wishes to engage in aggressive sports riding. The rider can freely select one of three modes using the convenient handlebar switch. Mode one is for sport riding with minimal intervention; mode two offers the ideal balance for typical road conditions; and mode three delivers maximum traction control when riding in poor conditions.
The Antilock Brake System (ABS) control unit, produced by BOSCH, is compact and light, weighing in at just 640g. It monitors wheel speed 50 times per wheel rotation, and matches stopping power to available traction.
