2004 Suzuki Katana 600 (GSX600F)

Winning combination of comfort, sporting performance and affordability

The Katana 600 has long been known for its winning combination of comfort, sporting performance and affordability. The ’04 Katana 600 is no different and features two new color selections this year. Riders again get all the style and performance they’ve come to expect from this mid-size machine.

The Katana 600 comes equipped with a responsive 16-valve, four-cylinder, air/oil-cooled engine. Its sturdy perimeter-style frame is complemented by a well-balanced suspension system. The front fork features adjustable rebound damping, while the link-type rear suspension utilizes an adjustable shock absorber. Radial tires give the Katana 600 a smooth and sporty ride that’s great for all day cruising or spirited sport riding. Twin headlights housed in a sharp-looking, aerodynamic fairing provide stylish enhancements.
