Uchida, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd. said, “We feel
proud to announce the launch of the Katana in India. The Katana reflects
Suzuki’s ongoing commitment to fine craftsmanship and its willingness to sweat
every detail to get them right. The launch is a part of our strategy to
solidify our big bike portfolio in the country. We received a lot of queries
from motorcycle enthusiasts after showcasing the Katana in the last auto expo.
It is basis the positive feedback of our potential customers that we decided to
introduce the Katana in India. We are confident that the Katana will be able to
make its own cult following in India too.”
Suzuki Katana is powered by a 999cm3 four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC,
inline-four engine that delivers 152PS@ 11,000rpm and 106Nm@9250rpm torque. The
motorcycle is armed with Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) which comes
with a variety of advanced electronic control systems. S.I.R.S. features Suzuki
Traction Control System (STCS), Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), Ride-by-Wire
Electronic Throttle System, Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
Traction Control System (STCS) offer a wider selection of 5 mode settings (+
OFF) and fits a more diverse variety of riding conditions and styles. This in
turn instills greater confidence in the rider, regardless of experience, while
reducing stress and fatigue.
Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)is designed to offer a choice between three different
modes that change output characteristics — especially when turning the throttle
grip between a slightly open position to when it reaches the top of the
mid-speed range under acceleration to match riding conditions or preferences.
The settings for each mode were custom-tuned and thoroughly tested to build in
the flexibility to better adapt to changing weather, road and riding conditions
and optimise performance to make the overall riding experience more enjoyable.
