KATANA is a classic model of Suzuki, and news of its possible resurrection has been circulating for a long time, but people have not been able to find relevant evidence. The latest news now shows that the resurrection of the Suzuki sword may become a reality next year.

Starting from the Z900RS, neoclassical models have gradually become hot, Honda and Yamaha have also launched CB1000R and XSR900 respectively, while Suzuki has remained silent in this boom. The Katana 3.0 exhibited by Suzuki at the Milan Motor Show last year can not help but stimulate people’s imagination.
In addition, as the Katana 3.0 exhibited aroused a huge response from car fans, Suzuki also had to pay attention. It is reported that Suzuki has already started implementing the “New KATANA Plan” internally, and that the new Suzuki knife may be developed based on the GSX-S1000.
In March of this year, Suzuki also submitted applications for the “KATANA” trademark to the United States, Europe and Japan. However, according to the principle of use, the trademark will be invalid if it is not used within 3 years. Of course, Suzuki will not give up the big IP of Suzuki knife, so vehicles with the word “KATANA” will appear before 2021 at the latest.
Classic models add modern elements and reappear in a new image. They are generally popular, especially now that retro models are hot. However, the shape of the Suzuki knife is very unique, and the future market acceptance remains to be tested.
