Featured In the March 2020 issue of Roadracing World:
“There may not be a more iconic motorcycle than Suzuki’s 1982 GSX-S1000S, which later became the 1983 Katana GSX-S1000S. It wasn’t that the machine was remarkable in its performance, and I’ll have to take the word of others on that because I was 12-13 at the time. But I can still remember the Suzuki Katana as being one of the first motorcycles to catch my eye and start waking something up inside me that defines my life to this very day. The Katana looked like a silver rocket on two wheels, and I wanted to ride it!
“Now, Suzuki is looking to rekindle that passion in riders like me and maybe win over some others with the 2020 GSX-S1000S Katana, which is a combination of Suzuki’s current GSX-S1000 naked model and a modern interpretation of the Katana’s iconic appearance …”
