Suzuki has released its fourth KATANA teaser trailer – and it finally offers a look at the latest incarnation of the iconic machine.
We’ve been telling you that an all-new Suzuki Katana is on the way for months. And after bringing you the first three teasers for the new 2019 machine, the fourth teaser trailer has just been released – finally giving us a glimpse of what the reimagined iconic machine will look like when it’s unveiled at INTERMOT in Cologne next week.
The video starts with a look at a katana sword before switching to a frontal shot of the headlight. We were worried that would be all we’d get, but thankfully Suzuki added a quick glimpse of the 2019 Katana in motion towards the end of the clip. And interestingly, it reveals a few important details…
Firstly of all, we can finally see how closely the new Katana adheres to the design of the original bike (designed by Hans Muth). Sure, the front fairing has a few sharper edges – but the overall look is similar to the classic design.
That’s not all – below the radiator, we can see four header pipes and an engine that resembles the GSX-S1000′s inline-four powerplant – and even its chassis appears to be a match for that of the GSX-S. The video also confirms LED lighting, inverted forks with Brembo brakes, and a tyre-hugging swingarm-mounted fender/plate-holder/turn signal mount.
All we know is we can’t wait to finally see it in the flesh. And thankfully we won’t have to wait much longer, with the 2019 Suzuki Katana making its official debut on October 2nd at INTERMOT.
