When Suzuki released the radical Katana at the end of 1981 for the 1982 Model Year it was originally available in 1100, 1000 (for the US), 750, 650 and 550cc versions. The GSX750SZ Katana was based on the GSX750E and Suzuki claimed it to be the fastest 750cc production bike available in 1982.
While the four-valve GSX750E engine was already no slouch, for the 750 Katana Suzuki’s engineers lightened the valve train, removed some weight from the flywheel, installed new cams, improved the valve seats, fitted a new inductive ignition, larger 34mm Mikuni CV carburettors and a new four-into two black chrome exhaust system. Although the one-piece crank and bore and stroke of 67x53mm were unchanged the higher compression (9.8:1) pistons received new rings. The 747cc four produced 81 horsepower at 9,200rpm. The 750 Katana shared its frame and suspension with the 1100, including the 1,520mm wheelbase and 28.5-degree steering rake. The 750’s cast wheels were 19-inch on the front and a slightly narrower 2.15×17-inch on the rear. At 228kg the 750 weighed 5kg less than the 1100 and visually only the single colour blue vinyl seat distinguished the 750 Katana from the 1100 with its two-tone seat. As a sports bike the 750 Katana was outstanding, offering European-style handling with Japanese power and useability. The Katana has now earned a cult status, and while style may have predominated over function that hasn’t diminished its appeal. The Katana remains a tribute to an era when motorcycle manufacturers were prepared to stretch the boundaries, unleashing outlandish machines on an unsuspecting public without any guarantee of commercial success. The Katana didn’t sell in vast quantities, but it is now considered one of the most memorable and collectable Suzuki’s of the 1980s.
