So, here are a few basic truths about the Katana that have the potential to make it the hit Suzuki hopes it will become. First of all, the bike looks pretty cool. Although this is one of many retro themed motorcycles on the market these days, the new Katana has managed to stay true to its original, unique, and funky design, with a modern twist. The second truth is that it has been infused with a legitimate GSX-R1000 engine so it has potential to be a really impressive bike if it arrives un-neutered. And now the final piece of the puzzle is that Suzuki will be offering it at $13,499.
