The revolutionary Suzuki Katana was released in 1980 and changed the course of motorcycle design and performance. Team Target, a German design team lead by ex-BMW designer Hans Muth, gave the Katana its sharp-edged lines that would soon become the standard for sport bikes. Suzuki's new Katana uses the famed original as its inspiration with all the modern features and performance riders expect. The heart of the Katana is a 999cc GSX-R1000, good for 150 horsepower, that rides in a twin-spar aluminum frame. Radial Brembo brakes and electronic features like three-mode traction control and ABS. Then there's the styling — an excellent reinterpretation of the iconic original. Expect to see the Katana in showrooms in Spring of 2019.
