Frame no. GS650G 103977
Engine no. GS650G 115520
Styled by the German firm of Target Design under the direction of Brit Jan Fellstrom and first seen at the 1980 Cologne Show, the GSX1100 Katana represented a bold effort to produce an uncompromising sports bike in the European mould. The result was a machine that combined straight-line speed with secure handling like no Japanese bike before it. The concept's immediate success confirmed the wisdom of Suzuki's policy of introducing a family of similarly styled machines across just about every capacity class, the existing GS650 getting the Katana treatment for 1981. Offered here is a low-mileage, three-owner example of this 1980s style icon. 'CUG 490Y' was supplied new via Dowsons of Scarborough and comes with the original dealer correspondence and sales invoice. Acquired by the current vendor in January 2014, the Katana has been treated to a light restoration, which included a full service and repainting the exhaust system, shaft drive housing, brake callipers and brake disc centres. We are advised that, due to the low mileage, the machine still had its original Suzuki brake pads installed! Presented in beautiful condition, it comes complete with tool kit, owner's manual and manufacturer's brochure, and is offered with a V5C registration document and some MoT certificates (most recent expired April 2014).
