The 1982 Suzuki Katana was a machine before her time; a Nippon-Saxon gamble on starship styling to jumpstart Suzuki’s dour offerings. Thirty years on, the Katana is the darling of the ball, but in the early eighties few were interested in dancing with the silver dame. The Katana, in stock form, is an acquired taste. Her diminutive fairings, rectangular headlight, awkward tank, and sofa’esque seat are a divisive mix. Not a superbike, nor a sport bike, she remains an obtuse side note in the performance bike narrative.
