No stage can be more perfect than the town of Cologne to launch the Suzuki Katana 3.0, as it was conceptualized by a German resident in Germany. BMW’s ex-chief of styling Hans Muth was hired by Suzuki to work on the first Katana Project and after so many years the company is returning to Germany to launch the new Katana 3.0.
The news was confirmed by Suzuki’s Twitter handle when they posted a video of a Katana Sword being made. It was obvious after watching the video, as no other bike in the company’s portfolio is named “Katana”.
There is also a photo of the Suzuki Katana 3.0 on the internet and many can be mistaken by its real identity. Although the same model was on display by the company during EICMA 2017, in Milan, it is actually a GSX-1000F restored to look like a potential Suzuki Katana 3.0. It was made by the combined efforts of the famous designer Rodolfo Frascoli and Engines Engineering. There is a good chance that the company will not let this design go to waste and some of these elements will be seen on the final Suzuki Katana 3.0.
The last Suzuki Katana was made in 2006 and from its inception as a sports bike in the 90’s. It also became a familiar name with the touring series of GSX-F motorcycles, which ultimately ended up as the base for the upcoming concept. There will also be a lot of action coming out of the Intermot 2018 and be assured that we will bring you all of it.
