Drawing inspiration from the original GSX1100S Katana, Suzuki brings back the iconic motorcycle with a long-stroke version of the fuel-injected 999cc inline-four from the GSX-R1000. Those sharp angles will be rocketing down the asphalt with a specially tuned exhaust note, an all-new throttle control, back-torque-limiting clutch, and a three-mode Traction Control System. It will also feature new tires and a tubeless inner structure that has been designed exclusively for the Katana and stopping power will be handled by Brembo front brake calipers and an Antilock Brake System.
