1982 Suzuki Katana

“I al­ways lusted af­ter a Katana and as a de­signer I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the Suzuki’s unique styling. In­ter­est­ingly, the shape was orig­i­nally de­signed for MV in a com­pe­ti­tion, but Suzuki took on the look and made it their own. I could never af­ford a Katana when they were new, so I bought this from a guy in Hol­land as a present for my 50th birth­day. The Katana is a big old bus to ride, and its brakes are ter­ri­ble, but it still looks like noth­ing else on the road and is a joy to sim­ply stare at as well as ride.”

And who doesn’t se­cretly lust af­ter a Katana?
