I have been riding for 25 years. I had everything from Harley to XT to ZX 10. This bike is perfect for many types of riders. If, like me, you are not 6' tall then you will love this bike. If you also plan on riding for more than 2 hours then you will appreciate the thick padded seat. This bike will get up to 130-140 mph. If you plan on going faster than this bike will carry you, then you had better be very experienced or on a track. I have no problem keeping up with ZX-YZ-CBR-or GSXRs. And NO I am not saying that this bike will keep up with them when they are going 160,170,180 mph. What I will say is that if you own this bike and take the time to learn how to drive it to its full capacity, then you can keep up with the high performance bikes that are meant for very experienced riders. OH AND BY THE WAY-IT'S A 1999 AND STILL CAN KEEP UP WITH THEM!!! LOOK AT HOW LONG IT HAS BEEN IN SUZUKI'S LINEUP.

I bought the Katana after being away from bikes for 10 years. Great Move! It's quick as any bike its well balanced for two riders and it definitely turns heads up and down the highways and streets.

I bought the Katana after being away from bikes for 10 years. Great Move! It's quick as any bike its well balanced for two riders and it definitely turns heads up and down the highways and streets. It could use a bit more power and I have replaced the stock exhaust with Yoshimura slip on and it's got a great sound now. don't buy a bike without at least seeing and sitting on a Katana.

It's sad that grown men pass over this bike because of peer pressure from their fellow squids. This bike has ample power. I've gotten it to 120mph with plenty of throttle room left. It really should be classified as a sport tourer. The riding position is amazingly comfortable for 2 up riding. The ride can be a little buzzy, but overall, it's a great ride. It also has a fuel gauge, and you've gotta like that! The only thing I don't like about this bike is the weight. It's a pig @ 458lbs. It's also too quiet for me, but a Muzzy will fix that! The only people who dislike this bike are selfconscience squids and those who've never ridden it. If you're looking for a comfortable durable bike with adequate power, then this is the bike for you. If you're looking to impress your fellow man, then look elsewhere. Sadly, I've gotten MANY compliments from Gixxer & R6 riders when their "friends" weren't looking.

The first time I took it out girls would pull up next to me and ask, "Can you take me for a ride?" What an attention getter with the sexy curves and the bright color, Who wouldn't be jealous/envious? great investment for the 98 and up are the same body style, practically maintenance free. What a bike!!!

For $5800 it has been nothing but a pleasure to own this bike. Love the styling, its comfy for long trips, gets good gas mileage. Engine is very nice, good amount of power. Perfect sports tourer or pefect for a first bike. It has 10,000 hard ridden miles, with several strip runs and its runnning like a charm. Only problem is that I got used to it after 2 years and now need more power. Overall the bike is a winner ! ! !
