2019 Suzuki Katana Price Announced BikeSocial News


Suzuki’s new Katana will cost £11,399 when it reaches dealers this spring and buyers will be able to opt for an additional £999 ‘Samurai’ accessory pack.

The bike is based heavily on the existing GSX-S1000 which shares the same engine, chassis and suspension, but it’s £1300 more expensive than the naked GSX-S1000 and £1100 more than the faired GSX-S1000F. For that extra cash, you get not only the iconic Katana name and styling but also tech including LED lighting and an improved instrument panel borrowed from the GSX-R1000.

The optional Samurai accessory pack delves into the options catalogue to add a fly screen, a red-and-black seat instead of the stock silver-and-black one, a carbon-effect front mudguard and matching engine covers, a tank pad, a fairing decal and red wheel rim tape. It might not seem like a huge amount for the £999 additional cost, but that actually represents a £383 saving over buying the parts individually.

Suzuki is currently carrying out a Katana roadshow, touring dealers around the country with example of the bike so customers can take a closer look even before the Katana is officially on sale. There’s a full list of participating dealers and the dates that the Katana will be on display at them on Suzuki’s website here.
