In terms of performance, the 2006 Suzuki Katana leaves little to be desired. For those who want the most capable performance specs offered, the Suzuki GSX Katana 1000 will provide more than enough power to cruise easily at highway speeds, or to attack the curves of mountain roads and long stretches of wide open highway. The Katana 600 is limited to a top speed of 134 mph, but it will impress any rider off the line. Within a matter of seconds, riders can easily work through all six gears, and handling and maneuverability are top-notch. This bike is capable of getting low and scraping knees, for those who love to max out their turns. It is also enjoyed while cruising, with a classic riding style that suggests comfort over sporting aesthetics.
