  • Katana goodness





    To celebrate the end of the Suzuki Katana's extraordinary 20-year production run, Yoshimura produced this special version using some of the last bikes off the production line in 2001. Shedding a massive 96lbs and gaining something in excess of 55bhp over the stock Katana, the Yoshimura 1135R represented the culmination of everything Yoshimura knew about tuning the 1100cc oil-cooled motor and its steel cradle chassis. It still looks better than nearly any bike that's come out of a Japanese factory since.

    The full, yet intriguingly mysterious spec sheet is below, but we think our favorite parts are the crazy "I've Got The Power!" badge on the clutch cover and the contrastingly classy embossed black Yoshimura logo on the tank.

    Weight Stock 241.2kg > Yoshimura 197.8kg
    Horsepower Stock 95bhp > Yoshimura over 150bhp

                    Looks awesome! - I suppose a good analogy/similie(?) would be that it is like a Keira Knightley version of a GSF1200S 'Bandit' (super light and no boobs).

                    A lot of parts look the same, though I suppose that is to be expected as the Katana grew to be the Bandit.

                      Perdition, I read somewhere (and this was a while ago) that the front forks were from the GSXR600R and fully adjustable.
