Katana test rider’s hon­est opin­ion re­vealed

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Jur­gen Plaschka, the Katana’s de­vel­op­ment rider, re­vealed his thoughts on the new head­line-grab­ber. “When you sit on the bike, the rid­ing po­si­tion is very dif­fer­ent and you no­tice that straight away.

“The seat is higher, your knees are at a more re­laxed an­gle and you are more over the front and there are new Dun­lop Sports­mart 2 tyres, too.

“I en­joy the rid­ing posi­ton. It’s a sporty, fun-rid­ing bike for short trips. A mod­ern-day retro with its own char­ac­ter and as you get more fa­mil­iar with it the more you can trust it and push it.”
