About the Suzuki Katana 2021
Unveiled at the Cologne Salon in Germany, the Suzuki Katana 2021 already showed what it came from. That’s because naked preserves the semi-fairing style of the classic GSX1100S, original from 1981, in addition to items such as the windshield and straight-line headlight, helping to compose the gross appearance of the bike.
The look is also highlighted by the exhaust design, which is shorter, and the tail, also short, ending in a large lantern, gaining a plate holder right next to the rear wheel.

But the strength of this Suzuki Katana 2021 is not only in appearance, no. The engine has four 999 cm3 DOHC cylinders, which generates almost 150 horsepower at 10,000 rpm. Its torque goes up to 11 kgfm in 9,500 turns.
All this “brutality” needed some control to transfer that force to the ground, right? That’s why this naked Suzuki has a sliding clutch and traction control.
All this with the exclusivity of Dunlop tires without a camera, developed only for this bike. Main competitor of the new Suzuki Katana:
