Default 2022 Suzuki Katana revealed at EICMA 2021

Suzuki has taken the wraps off the 2022 Katana at EICMA 2021. Besides the cosmetic makeover, the bike gets a mechanical upgrade as well.

The Katana shares its platform with the GSX-S1000. The semi-faired litre-class bike features a retro-modern look. It has a rectangular LED headlamp and a short tail section.

The Katana is powered by a 998cc, 4-cylinder engine that produces 150 BHP @ 11,000 rpm. Thanks to a new camshaft profile, valve springs, and a new intake and exhaust system, the engine makes 2 BHP more than the outgoing version.

The Katana is based on a lightweight, twin-spar aluminium frame. It rides on fully-adjustable KYB front forks, with an adjustable mono-shock at the rear. Braking duties are handled by dual 310 mm front discs with Brembo calipers and a single disc at the rear.

The 2022 Katana comes with the Suzuki Riding Mode Selector System with three engine modes, ride-by-wire throttle, a bi-directional quick shifter paired with a new Suzuki Clutch Assist System and traction control with five settings. Finally, there is the easy start system that avoids stalling at slow speeds.

Looks beautiful and much like a piece of a collectible art. Would I own it if I had the money? Probably no.

Looks beautiful. 998 CC 150 BHP is really good. With some useful specs like, low rpm assist to prevent stalling, bi-directional shifter, traction and engine response control for varied driving modes is a welcome. I don't see a dual ABS channel mentioned anywhere.

OT - being Suzuki, they did not mention "Kitna deti hai" . Probably, this detail is specific to India.

Lovely lovely motorcycle.

While the design is polarising and many hate it, I personally LOVE it. The matte blue with gold alloys is such a fantastic colour scheme. Trust Suzuki to do something completely different from others!

Katana is a legend back in Japan. I think it's an older brand than the Hayabusa. It's a collectible. I doubt if they will bring it to the indian market anyway.

I love the design from the pics. Now I am waiting for our real Desi OEM - Bajaj, to copy it and give us a better Dominar - say Dominar 650 or 550

I will be able to afford it and ride it in that case
