– 2001 Suzuki GSX 600 F Katana

THE 2001 SPORT LINE: KATANA, TL1000S, SV650, SV650S

Suzuki Katanas have long been known as motorcycles with the right combination of performance and value. A Katana combines sport-bike responsiveness with an ample amount of comfort that a motorcyclist needs for a weekday commute, or a weekend pleasure ride. Look at a Katana and you’ll see handlebars and footpegs that place the rider in a comfortable upright position, and a contoured seat that helps the rider stay focused on the ride. If you prefer the same level of comfort and versatility, but with V-twin performance there’s the compact SV650, new SV650S and sport-oriented TL1000S. Both of these streetwise, 90° V-twin powered machines offer plenty of value with unmistakable V-twin sound and feel.


GSX600F KATANA

The Katana 600 returns for 2001 in two new great colors. The Katana’s comfort and sport performance are packaged in a slim, aerodynamic fairing with twin headlights and a sturdy perimeter frame. Underneath the aero styling you’ll find a responsive 16-valve, four-cylinder, air/oil cooled engine with proven performance and durability. Supporting it all is a well-balanced suspension with a rebound adjustable front fork and a link-type rear suspension with an adjustable shock absorber. Plus wide radial tires give the Katana a ride smooth enough for all-day cruising, yet firm and controlled enough for more spirited riding. You get all of this for a retail price under $6500, making this bike an incredible bargain.
