FORGING A NEW
The GSX-S1000GT³ blends high levels of performance from its superbike-derived 999cc engine and agile, lightweight chassis with the comfort, functionality, and luxury associated with a true sports tourer. It represents a total rethinking of what performance-minded touring riders desire, whether embarking on a solo journey or with a pillion, or enjoying a sporty weekend ride.
HAGANE FORGED PERFECTION
The high performance 999cc four-stroke DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine that powers the Katana inherits true winning superbike DNA. This street-tuned engine is based on core architecture that benefits from know-how acquired over decades of developing the GSX-R to win countless production race victories, while also incorporating advanced technologies developed for MotoGP racing.
Japanese swordsmiths devote countless hours to repeatedly forge, hammer, fold the raw steel to achieve the right balance needed for the blade to perform optimally. Fired by the same spirit, Suzuki’s development team tested and tuned each component to create a compact, lightweight chassis that is engineered to provide agility, ease of control and a fun-to-ride character.
Brembo radial mount monobloc front brake calipers are mated with Ø310mm floating-mount dual discs to provide powerful braking performance. Each caliper has four opposing Ø32mm pistons. The Antilock Brake System monitors wheel speed 50 times per wheel rotation, and matches stopping power to available traction. The ABS control unit, produced by BOSCH is compact and light weight.
The vertically stacked LED headlight with a unique rectangular shape and LED front position lights accentuates the sharp look of the KATANA’s face. At the back of KATANA, the LED rear combination lights feature a sharp line and unique lighting pattern that heighten the advanced look of the KATANA’s styling.
INTELLIGENT RIDE SYSTEM (SIRS)
The Katana uses a collection of advanced electronic systems that comprise the Suzuki Intelligent Rise System (SIRS). These enable the rider to optimise performance characteristics to best suit riding conditions and varying road surfaces, as well as their level of confidence and experience. These benefit the rider by instilling greater confidence and allowing them to concentrate on enjoying the riding experience.
