Suzuki Motor USA (Suzuki) is pleased to announce a return of the distinctive KATANA sport bike. Through a limited release, owners can reserve one of a few and have the opportunity to elevate their collection with the technically-updated KATANA. Securing the 2024 KATANA earns owners two years of complimentary service and a collectible 24”x24” KATANA digital lithograph reproduction of renowned Japanese artist Makoto Endo’s beautiful KATANA illustration originally featured in Cycle World magazine.
This special, limited-run 2024 model is available for U.S. buyers to reserve via special order through the Suzuki dealer of their choice through October 20th, 2023. Availability is limited and reservations are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
KATANA for 2024 puts an even finer edge on the overall performance and riding pleasure as it returns to the Suzuki lineup with a host of improvements.
Updates include the introduction of the advanced electronic Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) offering a Bi-directional Quick Shift System and other refinements to deliver improved overall performance. The KATANA’s unparalleled styling is brought into focus with a distinctive, new color for 2024 and accents suited to a modern, design-driven, premium sportbike.
For 2024, KATANA key new product updates include
The 999cc, GSX-R-based engine has more peak power than the 2020 KATANA, with strong torque in the low- to mid-range that is smoothly controlled by new, Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle bodies for a stimulating sportbike experience.
The latest version of the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) smooths shifting and engine braking and gives the rider’s clutch hand a rest with the new Bi-directional Quick Shift system.
The KATANA now features the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) that includes the three-mode Suzuki Drive Mode Selector and the updated, five-mode Advanced Traction Control System* plus the popular Easy Start and Low RPM Assist systems.
The 2024 KATANA is a refined, naked sportbike with elements of the original Hans Muth-designed Katana but blends in modern styling and performance. Nothing looks like a KATANA, and its beauty is emphasized by the deep Metallic Matte Stellar Blue bodywork with gold-anodized fork legs and matching gold wheels.
Like a bladesmith folding the steel to craft a samurai’s cherished sword, the KATANA reflects Suzuki’s ongoing commitment to fine engineering, precise craftsmanship, and a dedication to performance, so every KATANA detail delivers on these goals.
