The Suzuki Katana was more of a street bike for people who are not looking for sharp dynamics like that of the GSX-S1000. The company was supposed to showcase the updated and refreshed version of the Katana at the Tokyo and Osaka motorcycle shows but they got cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the front, the Suzuki Katana gets an all-LED rectangular headlamp which follows an old-school look. The suspension set up on the Suzuki Katana consists of a fully adjustable KYB 43mm USD fork and a link-type monoshock unit adjustable for preload and rebound damping. Braking duties are handled by Brembo radial calipers.
