    The New Katana

    Has anybody heard what the likely pricing of the bike will be. Given it's a fancy GSXR1000S I was hoping that it would be similar.
    Gone riding!

    Hi pkay
    Given it’s a re-fairning’ed GSX-S1000 I’m hoping they keep it realistic around $15,990.

    Too much more than that for same hardware and Hoping on the namesakes coat tails would just be having a lend at our expense.

    The same thing happened with the Z900Rs retro kwaka..
    It to was based around the Z900 at 13K.
    Ended up with an RRP of 18k...
    Inside information suggests the new kat will be in the 18-20k rannge......
    83 Suzuki Katana 1000sd...82 Suzuki Katana 1000s...80 Kawasaki Z1R Mk11...
    83 Kawasaki 750 Turbo...07 Kawasaki ZRX1200r

    Brothers, do not be tempted by spin from the marketing suits! A decal on a current machine does not a Katana make! Gotta go to the shed now and prepare the torches and pitchforks.

    Keep the faith.

    Hi Tom, no, it is not too late to save you! My methods of salvation to free you from this torment of considering buying the so called "Katana" may at first seem harsh, perhaps even brutal. However, salvation from such depravity is a road well worth traveling.

    I am here to help.

    Cheers.

    It is too late for you to save me Glen!

    I am going to relive my life when I was 25 when I purchased my first new Katana as I have actually paid a sizable deposit at McCulloch Suzuki for the first new Katana 2020 new in Australia.
    Ride it, don't hide it!
