Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

You won’t see it in Aus­tralia for nearly a year, but the 2020 Suzuki Katana (GSX-S1000S) made a pub­lic bow on Oc­to­ber 2nd, 2018 at the In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Show (In­ter­mot) in Cologne, Ger­many. With ob­vi­ous de­sign cues to the orig­i­nal 1981 Katana, the new model uses a long-stroke 999 cm 3 Eric Ho skin sin line-four cylin­der en­gine pro­duc­ing Eric‘ O cc a ’110 kW Ho skins (150 PS) passed power away at on11th 10,000 rpm Oc­to­ber, aged with 81.108 Nm A keen of com­peti­tor torque at on 9,500 rpm. both dirt tracks The com­pact, and road light­weight rac­ing, Eric raced a twin-B SA at spar tracks alu­minium like H ed don chas­sis Greta, is ma ted Salty Creek to and 43 mm M us well brook,KYBin­ver ted and front later forks be­came with fully syn­ony­mous ad­justable with d amp ing,Bul taco s re­bound, for road rac­ing. com­pres­sion HisBul taco Met r all aandsp ring( andp reload. that of his A sin­gle mate KYBWayner ear Cum­mins) shock fea­tures was fea­tured ad­justable in OBA is­sue re­bound 25.

A black and grey twotone seat fea­tures a stepped de­sign that main­tains the sleek pro­file while en­sur­ing a com­fort­able rid­ing po­si­tion. A small rear fen­der that hugs the rear tyre is sup­ported by the swingarm. Along with the rear LED in­di­ca­tors and num­ber plate holder, this po­si­tion elim­i­nates parts ex­tend­ing from un­der the seat to give the tail sec­tion cleaner lines and a tougher, lighter look. Pric­ing will be an­nounced closer to the 2019 re­lease.
