Of all the sport bikes Ive owned in the past 15 years my new found GSX is far and away the most fun bike I've ridden. Public roadways are no place for racing so why spend so much time and energy building a rocket that kills your back and wrists after just an hour of riding? there is absolutely no need for going 160 on city streets. Period. I bought a 98 GSX in black with Yoshi rs-3 pipe, stage 1 jets, D&D chain, clear brake and turn signal lenses, fender eliminator, brand new Dunlop sportmax tires, and a host of other aftermarket goodies for a mere $3,000. This bike turns more heads than a screwdriver. Its a real poser. I get compliments everywhere I go. Not to mention that I can ride this bike all day and just keep wanting more. A truly awesome bike.

I purchased my 98, Katana in March '99; I've put 8700 miles on it so far, and loved every minute of it. It's a great bike. It was a bit slow for me but I took care that. So for you daring speed demons that like me could not afford a true supersport or the insurance, this is what you do. First the pipe, go with a Yoshy or a D and D pipe. Stage One jet kit is food for thought. don't pipe without jetting. Now, sprockets, go down to a 14 in the front, up to a 47 in the rear. This will you excellent low end power and some mid, but, it will also take just a little from the top speedo, will limit it to about 110mph to 120mph.but how often do you go this fast anyway? don't answer that!! I don't wanna know. Ha ha ha ... Anyway when you change the sprocket you will also need a new chain, I suggest a sealed o-ring. Add a set of new Avon Azzaro steal belted radials and your set up for street racing, now you have a sleeper on your hands. Now don't kill yourself or take unnecessary chances, just have fun and surprise those GSXR 750's with your newfound power. After today I will no longer own one, I traded it for a cruiser, I'm 37 years old with a new born son, so I guess it time to slow down hu? So shadow 750 ace deluxe, it is from now on. Have fun and be careful.

The katana 750 is my ninth machine. First one to be purchased brand new .The mileage now is over 12,000 miles and I am loving every minute! The bike is very user friendly, no surprises, and no complaints. It's fast, fun, comfy and reliable! <br /> Love it.

I have owned a 98 Suzuki 750 Katana over the past two years. My Katana is my third street legal bike I have owned (550 GPZ, and 750GPZ Turbo), and this bike is a great sport ride. The bike has been 100% reliable. Fun to ride all day long, and doesn't wear you out like a true crotch rocket. The bike is great!

I have owned a black Katana for almost 2 years now. It has been a wonderful, reliable, fun and fast sport-tourer. If you can get a low mileage '98 I would recommend it. This bike looks best in black, not psyco-blue or moopy maroon. Also the 2000 uses a sticker as the name plate for the Katana emblem, not a chromed piece. Looks way tacky. Look at what bike Pridmore is using when Cycle World reviewed his class.
