Forging a New Street Legend
Further honing of the 2022 KATANA puts an even finer edge on overall performance and riding pleasure. Updates include the introduction of advanced electronic controls and refinements that result in greater overall performance. Styling improvements highlighting its quality and distinctive good looks include cool new body colors suited to a superior street bike and new trim for functioning parts.

The epitome of fine craftsmanship and pure functional beauty.
Design inspiration for the original 1981 Suzuki KATANA came from the famed Japanese sword of the same name. It is a fitting motif for two reasons. Firstly, it reflects well the sharp lines and outstanding performance of the legendary KATANA’s functional beauty. As importantly, it reflects well Suzuki’s philosophy of uncompromising craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.)
The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) introduces a collection of advanced electronic control systems that enable the rider to optimize performance characteristics to match their level of confidence and experience, and to best suit specific riding conditions and varying road surfaces. The respective systems that comprise S.I.R.S. assist the rider by helping make the bike more controllable, more predictable, and less tiring to operate, whether out for a sporty run or enjoying a ride on city streets. This benefits the rider by instilling greater confidence and allowing them to concentrate on enjoying the riding experience.

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)
SDMS is designed to offer a choice between three different modes that change output characteristics — especially when turning the throttle grip between a slightly open position to when it reaches the top of the mid-speed range under acceleration — to match riding conditions or preferences. The settings for each mode were custom-tuned and thoroughly tested to build in the flexibility to better adapt to changing weather, road and riding conditions and optimize performance to make the overall riding experience more enjoyable.

Mode A (Active) is the mode of choice when the rider wants to put the finest edge on their KATANA’s performance. It provides the sharpest response as the throttle is opened, and the settings for torque characteristics are finely tuned to deliver the exciting acceleration of a superior liter-class sport bike when enjoying an aggressive run. It is well suited for use when hitting the throttle hard, such as when participating in track day events or enjoying a sporty run on winding roads in good weather.
Mode B (Basic) reaches the same level of maximum output, but features softer response and a more linear power delivery curve as the rider opens the throttle. Tuned to make the bike more controllable and instill confidence when accelerating, this mode is a good fit for everyday riding.
Mode C (Comfort) provides the softest throttle response and more gentle torque characteristics, delivering power in smoother linear fashion while still reaching the same level of maximum power output. Gentler throttle response and limited torque production as the throttle is opened makes the bike even more obedient and controllable on wet or otherwise slippery surfaces or when road conditions are bad.

Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS)
STCS is updated from the 3 mode (+ OFF) version of the previous generation to now offer a wider selection of 5 mode settings (+ OFF). The finer incremental control over settings allows the new 5-mode traction control system to better fit a more diverse variety of riding conditions and styles. This in turn instills greater confidence in the rider, regardless of experience, while reducing stress and fatigue. The higher number the mode, the faster the control takes effect and the more proactive the system is in limiting wheel spin.
Note: The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.

Bi-directional Quick Shift System
This distinctive feature enhances the riding experience by enabling the rider to shift up or down smoothly without operating the clutch lever.
When activated by the rider, the system automatically interrupts power delivery when accelerating just long enough to produce smoother, almost uninterrupted acceleration when the rider shifts up. When decelerating, the system automatically increases rpm to match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio. The result of this hands-free automatic blipping function combines seamlessly with engine braking to realize highly satisfying downshifts.
The Bi-directional Quick Shift System combines with the SDMS power output mode settings to enable the rider to more freely prioritize sports or stability characteristics to match their style or the riding conditions of the moment. It also provides greater riding fun with a more linear shift feel when changing gears.

Ride-by-wire Electronic Throttle System
The newly introduced electronic throttle control system leverages the processing capabilities of a 32-bit ECM to control the action of the throttle valves. This makes it possible to introduce the variety of new electronic control systems that instill greater confidence in the rider and make the riding experience even more fun. The overall result is throttle action that responds faithfully to the rider’s intention, whether riding on the street or heading out to enjoy a sporty run.
