    Word is getting around, but with opinions…

    Check this recent thread on
    Many like it, the more I look at it, the less I like it, street bike, semi naked.
    The original was a superbike with clip-ons, latest engine specs, was track raced and still is track raced in vintage clubs.
    If this new Katana was another version of, and with all the performance of the GSXR line, it would get my respect.

      I see what your saying. It would be much nicer if it competed with Kawasakis H2.
      The first thing I looked at was to see if it were oil cooled.
