Suzuki Katana


THE LATEST GENERATION OF THE KATANA HAS BEEN revealed by Suzuki and the 2022 model receives minor changes. In terms of design, the Katana stays true to its roots with a blend of a retro and modern motorcycle, although it has received new colour schemes and graphics to increase the overall appeal. The bike shares its platform with the naked GSX-S1000. The Katana is powered by the same 998-cc fourcylind­er motor that puts out 150 hp at 11,000 rpm and a peak torque of 108 Nm at 9,500 rpm. Small upgrades have been made to the camshaft profile, valve springs, and the bike also gets a new intake and exhaust system.

The main change comes in the form of the updated electronic­s suite. It gets three riding modes, ride-by-wire throttle, a bidirectio­nal quick-shifter paired with a new Suzuki Clutch Assist System, and traction control with five settings. There is also an easy start system that will avoid stalling at low speeds.
