’82 Suzuki Katana

Back in the ’80s a good friend in the local Suzuki Kawasaki and every now and then would get a bike to ride for a while and I would get to ride it too. We some great bikes of the the first Ninja 900, the Kong GPz1100, and one of my favorites the GS1100. There were to ride that were with lots of potential, the Kawasaki KZ750 twin and little GS400, both good motorcycles, even if the was about as pure vanilla a as it gets (however, I would one today).

We rode bikes that blew (literally) us away…the GPz750 Turbo and the Suzuki Turbo. exciting as all get out when came on boost, but to have one as a rider? No thanks. And then, came the opportunity to rides that all you wanted to do was say “uh, no I uh…well, uh…I hear my calling…gotta go but thanks anyway”.

The example I have of that at the time was the Suzuki Madura. big 1200cc V-4 motor, but the styling was out of some designers Sake

The Suzuki V-4 had plenty of power, of torque and a great sound, but I couldn’t past it’s Suzuki even made it in a size…why? Now, before I get with emails from owners, remember ‘beauty is in the eye of the and that…leads us into the Katana.

The showed up on these shores in to very mixed reviews. was well aware of the GS1000 power and the handling of the chassis, but of us were ready for the out of this styling. The Katana was designed by Muth in Germany originally for the market. Mr.

Muth is known for penning the BMW R100RS, the first production designed in a wind tunnel. The was designed aerodynamically for stability at speeds. Also, one of the first cafe racers.

It succeeded at its quite well.

The angular put a lot of people off, but…if you closely, some of those design features are exactly you are looking at thirty years…thirty later. Go look at the latest on the market and you’ll see what I

The Katana has developed over the a cult following that just about any bike out that had a short production my friend Paul of Racers Service in Oxnard California at last count, thirteen of and services about fifteen from all over because of his and skill at finding parts to fit I too have a small lust for a partially because of it’s which I will admit I get all those years ago, but I do and mainly because I love bikes.

So, I found this nice 1982 Katana on the other day and this is a good Only 20K miles completely except for the VH exhaust (which is a great choice for this and looks right). The price is so far and it is an instant rider. If you are looking for an motorcycle (styling and performance that will draw a wherever you go, checkout this
