2006 Suzuki Katana 750
Suzuki’s Katana sport bikes have a well-deserved reputation for offering an exhilarating combination of sport performance and exceptional open-road comfort. For 2006, the Katana 750 carries on that tradition, calling you to enjoy whatever kind of riding suits you.

With instantaneous throttle response and terrific midrange performance, the Katana 750 is a blast on tight, twisty roads. And with strong high-rpm performance, it invites you to enjoy its sport performance right up to the legal limit.
When the canyon roads turn into the open highway, the Katana 750 is equally at home.
Its deeply padded seat, spacious riding position and smooth engine operation provide you with comfortable sport-touring hour after hour. Its advanced suspension systems provide a plush ride to enhance its smooth open-road performance.
