Suzuki Katana is a rider’s delight

Suzuki Slashes Katana Price & Adds Value

Suzuki Motorcycle Australia has slashed $3000 off the price of its revived Katana and introduced two value accessory packs to help the model which has failed to make a showroom impact.

While it’s a great bike to ride, the styling has divided opinions and the bike has failed to live up to its exhilarating forebears.

It arrived this time last year at $18,990 (ride away with 12 months’ rego), but now costs just $15,990.

To further boost interest, Suzuki has added two value cosmetic accessory packs.

The $1499 Shogun Pack brings the ride away price up to $17,749. It consists of: Two-tone seat, smoked visor, front and rear axle sliders, body decals and carbon fibre front fender, clutch cover, starter cover and alternator cover.

You can “build your own” Katana on the official website and clicking on the ‘Build Your Bike’ feature.

  1. It’s a shame they seemed to lack any real presence here. They’re a much more enjoyable ride than the similar GSX-S1000, for example, and a hell of a lot better looking. I think the price was the one sore spot for most folks, as it was fairly close to an S1000’s performance, for a good few thousand more.

  2. A seriously more realistic pricing structure for the new Katana.
    I’m also wondering about the Motorbike Writer web page photos with the dark overlay?
