That is a classic bike if ever there was one! It brought bikes into the modern world with that styling. When it was launched as a prototype in '79, people surely thought it was made for display purposes only. When Suzuki actually put it in production, everyone was taken aback! It was also the fastest bike of its time when it was launched - the 1000cc version, not the 750.

This bike deserves to be lovingly restored, used and kept forever!

Great find there Speedy!

There is another red Katana in Bangalore. The bike can be seen on the track day pics. Sadly, the owner crashed pretty badly on track and I am not aware of the status on the bike. Last I heard it was up for sale. I don't if it was the bike or the rider but that bike was really quick on track. Thats before JD & Dilip got onto track days with bikes.

There are endless number of SBK's in Bangalore and I have ridden a couple of Busa's, R1's, R6's, Honda VFR, GSXR. But the best bike I have ridden is a Yellow Ducati 749S. Cant upload the pics, since my net connection is having major problems. Look around the Bombay Speed Run pics, you should be able to find one there.

To see some more SBK's from Bangalore try out this site.

Welcome to Frenzy Ryderz!

hellwrath it was a 1982 honda cb900F. i had taken a few pictures of the bike but lost them when my laptop was infected. i never was fond of takeing pictures as i never was a picture person, its only lately since i have been active on the forum that i have started takeing pictures for you guys.
the bike was blue and now has been painted red by the current owner. will try and get some from him.
this is how she looked. really loved her but since my family is against bikes i had to reluctantly give her to someone who would take care of her.

Engine - 902cc, 4-stroke dohc 4
Power - 95bhp
Top Speed - 135mph
MPG - 35
Weight - 250kg (550lb)
Launched - 1979-1984

this is the same colour my bike was in. man it brings back memories sigh...:(
