The original Katana is considered to be one of the finest motorcycles Suzuki has ever made. And with its new model, Suzuki has tried to bring the name ‘Katana’ back to life. The new Suzuki Katana was first showcased in 2018 at international motor shows like the 2018 Intermot show in Germany and EICMA 2018 in Italy. And now it has been showcased at Auto Expo 2020. If things looked positive, Suzuki might even launch it in India!
Standing in its gorgeous silver paint scheme, the Katana grabbed many eyeballs and that’s exactly what we need; to convince Suzuki that Katana would be in demand in the Indian market. Suzuki’s primary objective of presenting the bike at the Auto Expo 2020 is to gauge audience reaction. If Suzuki decides to launch the Katana in India, it would happen later this year and the bike will be brought in as a CKD unit to keep the costs in check.
