Suzuki Katana (GSX-S1000S)
Suzuki Katana (factory code - GSX-S1000S ) was first introduced in 2018 at the Intermot-2018 exhibition. The appearance of this model is an attempt by Suzuki to revive the legendary Katana series of the 80s of the last century, using the most advanced technology and base Suzuki GSX-S1000. The new model is targeted at the European and Australian markets and, as of 2019, is not offered in Japan and North America.
In general, the model Suzuki Katana (GSX-S1000S) is built on a common base with GSX-S1000, differing from it in a unique appearance, much like the old "Katana" from the 80s. The model is distinguished by an aluminum frame, an in-line 4-cylinder injection engine from the sports version Suzuki GSX-R1000 (2005, K5), sports adjustable suspensions, 4-piston radial disc brakes with ABS, a 12-liter fuel tank , with a curb weight of 215 kg, a chain drive and the presence of a number of electronic assistants:
- Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS) - traction control system (antibuks). (OFF - off; 1-sport-mode; 2-city driving mode; 3-wet or cold asphalt mode).
- Low RPM Assist - helps to get under way easily by automatically raising engine revs if they are not enough.
- Suzuki Easy Start System - allows you to start the engine with just one short press on the starter button.
- Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) - slipping clutch - prevents the rear wheel from locking during a sharp downshift.
