A Closer Look at the 2020 Suzuki Katana

The Suzuki Katana has long been hailed as one of the best motorcycles that has ever come along. The original version first graced the streets during the early 1980s, 1981 to be exact. When Suzuki ceased production of the Katana, many riders were seriously disappointed. For the 2020 model year, the company has decided to bring back the motorcycle. While the new version is in no way intended to be a replica of the original, it does bear a slight resemblance to it in some aspects (namely the way the front fairing looks). You might think of this newer Katana as the modern day equivalent to the bike that changed everything for Suzuki so many years ago, a fitting tribute to the bike that still lives on in the hearts and minds of so many who honed their skills on the original Katana.

The 2020 version of the Katana has some sharp lines and that too is designed to pay homage to the original. The thing that riders might like best about it is that it is well proportioned. It has a seat that allows them to sit comfortably and the handlebars are easy to hold onto to, even when riding over long distances. The way the bike is designed gives riders the chance to enjoy the ride itself without forcing them to concern themselves with the need to constantly shift their body weight in order to remain comfortable. For anyone who rides more than a few miles at a time, this is easily one of the most important things to consider when looking for a new bike. It doesn’t matter how well something performs if it’s so uncomfortable to ride that no one can stand to be on it for more than a few minutes at a time.

As far as performance is concerned, the bike has more than enough power to help you get wherever you need to go and it does it in style. It has a special dual throttle body that ensures smooth acceleration, even when you find yourself getting a little heavy on the throttle. The bike responds well and there is virtually no hesitation, yet it doesn’t respond with so much fervor that it practically takes off without you unless you’re holding on for dear life. Despite the fact that it can hold its own with most other motorcycles on the street, this is a bike that operates fairly quietly. That’s good news for anyone who rides in crowded neighborhoods because the last thing you want is to constantly irritate the neighbors with something that’s loud enough to make you the least popular person on the block.

You already know that the bike is well proportioned and that it can perform. You know that it’s comfortable to ride. What you might not yet know is that Suzuki also went to a lot of trouble to make sure the bike is well balanced so it doesn’t have a tendency to throw you to the ground every time you hit a little bump in the pavement. As a matter of fact, even riders that don’t have that much experience seem to do well when they ride this bike. As long as you’re moving forward and you don’t do anything that is completely devoid of common sense, the bike has a lovely habit of correcting itself in most cases.

Even though it works well for those who don’t have a lot of riding experience, it is definitely not one of the bikes that experienced riders consider too tame for their own taste. Somehow, Suzuki has managed to accomplish something that it almost impossible- they have developed a motorcycle that can perform well when its limits are pushed, yet it is also capable of performing like a gentle giant. Regardless of your level of experience, this is a bike that can get the job done without a lot of fanfare. It’s sturdy, reliable, fast, and it looks great while it’s doing all of those things.

For anyone who remembers the original Katana, this is something that is sure to turn the heads of anyone who still rides on two wheels. Even for those individuals who aren’t even old enough to remember the original, this is a bike that is capable of offering practically anything a rider could ever want.
