2022 Suzuki Katana review – Sword of honour | First Ride | Autocar India

The Suzuki Katana is a legend of the biking world and the latest version is now on sale in India. With a 999cc, inline-four engine, the new Katana produces 150PS of power and 108Nm of torque. It gets Suzuki’s Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Suzuki has also equipped the new Katana with ride-by-wire throttle, Suzuki Easy Start System, Low RPM Assist and 10-level traction control.



The big news, however, is the new frame. Suzuki has done away with the traditional steel frame and swingarm in favour of an all-new aluminum frame and swingarm. The new frame is not only lighter but also stiffer and has been optimized for better weight distribution. As a result, the new Katana weighs just 199kg (kerb).

Suspension duties are handled by 43mm forks up front and a rear monoshock, both from Showa. Braking is via dual 320mm discs up front with Brembo radial callipers and a single 260mm disc at the rear with a Nissin calliper. The Katana comes equipped with dual-channel ABS as standard.

Suzuki has given the new Katana a very modern and aggressive look. It gets a full-LED headlight with DRLs, a sharp-looking fuel tank, and a stepped seat. The bike also gets a new instrument console with a large TFT screen.

The Suzuki Katana is available in two colours – Glass Sparkle Black and Metallic Matte Fibroin Gray. It is priced at Rs. 15.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
