Suzuki Katana teased ahead of India launch

The Katana is a semi-faired street bike featuring a neo-retro look.

Suzuki Motorcycles has released a short teaser of its upcoming litre-class bike, the Katana, for India.

The Suzuki Katana was first showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The bike maker is now gearing up to launch it in the Indian market.

The Katana is a semi-faired street bike featuring a neo-retro look. It has a square-ish headlamp and a short tail section with a stepped seat.

Powering the Katana is a 999cc, inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 150 BHP and 106 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox featuring a bi-directional quick-shifter.

The bike rides on 17-inch wheels and gets upside-down fork suspension at the front and a mono-shock at the rear. The brake setup is pretty conventional for a litre-class bike. It has twin discs at the front and a single disc at the rear equipped with Brembo-sourced calipers.
