1982 | GSX400E KATANA

Sporty model that inherits the KATANA style

GSX400E KATANA

This model combines a wholly new exterior design with the 400 cm³ 4-stroke 2-cylinder DOHC engine with Twin Swirl Combustion Chambers (TSCCs), 6-speed transmission, frame, and Anti Nose Dive Fork (ANDF) system adopted on the GSX400E. The result is a 400 cm³ model for Japan with styling that incorporates the lines of the KATANA series. The 16-liter fuel tank capacity makes this model particularly suited for long-distance riding.

1992 | GSX400S KATANA

400 cm³ model that faithfully reproduces the original KATANA design

GSX400S KATANA

The design of this model is based on the GSX1100S KATANA, whose popularity had remained unchanged since its debut in 1981. While remaining true to the original design, the GSX400S incorporates the latest technologies in both the engine and the chassis. The 4-stroke liquid-cooled 4-cylinder DOHC engine was newly engineered to emphasize torque, and tuned for optimum performance in the low- to mid-rpm ranges to prioritize rideability on city streets. Despite the liquid-cooled configuration of the engine, cooling fins inspired from air-cooled designs were added to the cylinder head and cylinders to create dynamic and memorable styling. The GSX400S KATANA also features a rear suspension equipped with a reservoir tank, large disc brakes, and wide tires to deliver both stable braking force and riding performance.
