Suzuki Japan has just released a short video, giving us the first glimpse of its new 2019 Katana in action. And it’s been ridden by ex-MotoGP rider Nobuatsu Aoki.

Ok, so it’s worth noting that this video has been made by Suzuki – so it’s not a massive surprise to hear Aoki’s overwhelmingly positive impressions of the bike. But regardless, we can’t wait to swing out leg over Suzuki’s latest neo-retro machine.

Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too much longer. Our man Mikko’s out in Japan to ride the reimagined Suzuki Katana next month – and we’ll be bringing you his first riding impressions right here, before the full launch report is published in the May issue of Motorcycle Sport and Leisure.
