  • Hadn't heard of that model before
    Although the GSX1100S Katana wasn’t sold in Australia after 1984 it was popular in Japan for many years. A 1982-spec 1100 Katana was available there until 1987, with a special anniversary version released in 1990 to celebrate Suzuki’s 70 years.

    Couldn't see a lot of info on it.
    Katanas are worth a lot of money at the moment, not sure if 18.5k though.

    • being a 1990 model import you wouldn't be able to register it at this point either?

      • I believe that is the case, I think you'd need to get it complied. Not impossible to do apparently, it's something that Motomax has said can be done (I made some initial inquiries about about a 96-97 rgv250 vj23) without destructive tests though I am not sure what is involved or the costs associated with.

          • I still reckon I'd consider trading my MT for a low kms, white, 1st gen (non-aprc), with service history that isn't a bag of shit.

                Nice, although I think you've confused this thread with the 'Bargain Bikes' thread.
                Just out of curiosity, what type of exhaust does it have fitted?

                  Standard exhaust the sons mate bought it but we keep all the bikes together i actually have four bikes now.
                  I will say this is the prettiest bike i have ever seen it came with the original seat and screen and was serviced by jcs motorcycles with the full service history and all the paperwork the muffler has three exhaust outlets a large one in the middle with a smaller outlet either side.
                  The bikes only issue is the rectifier was replaced twice otherwise a nice little bike.

                      You may note that there is a license plate on it.
                      So clearly it is registerable. If it were brought in as a personal import then it's more or less ADR exempt.

                      • roolly? ok then certainly sounds good no arguing from me and i was only drawing on the part of the add where it says japanese only model, the manufacture year and the bit where it says "registered : no" so its not and it doesnt show the plate so it could well say "FUKUPOPO" on it i just was thinkin if the seller wants very good coin then why its not registered and can it be is something thats going to "popup" in the buyers mind at some point or another.

                        good luck with your sale

                          • I've emailed the seller to see if he has an import permit.

                            There is another path, that being the Regulation 24 SEVS import. (Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles.)

                            It might be possible to get it placed on the SEVs register as the 70th anniversary model was not available in Australia. To support this, someone has successfully done it with a 2000 Katana "Final Edition", so they've already done the work.

                            EDIT: Confirmed no import permit. Would be nice on the mantelpiece. Or send to a Kiwi friend, have a riding holiday in unzud and re-import with permit from there.

                              Once a bike been imported and registered you don't keep the import paperwork forever, the thing will have had a VIN issued (they don't use the VIN system in Japan) the VIN will be on a official fed gov't sticker on the the bike, probably the head stock. Once its got a VIN in the system then that's it buy - sell do what you want with it.

                                There's the thing. Confirmed it's never been registered in Australia and no import permit. Mantelpiece ornament.
