Description

Additional photos of this 1992 Suzuki Katana are available here for your perusal.

When Suzuki restarted Katana 1100 production in 1990 with limited runs of 200 units that year and the next, they also decided to create smaller versions for the JDM market in 250cc and 400cc forms.

Surprisingly, the 400 had bigger and better brakes than the 1100, as well as wider tires. Ignoring the minor upgrades, the 400 looked impressively similar to its big brother thanks to the classic star wheels, black chrome four-into-two exhaust, and obviously the iconic bodywork.

The only significant visual differences were the Tokico 4-piston front calipers and Showa twin piggyback reservoir shocks.

The 399cc liquid-cooled engine was well-disguised to look like it was air-cooled. Basically pulled from the GSX-R/Bandit 400, the motor produced 53 horsepower at 10,500 rpm and 27 lb-ft of torque at 9,500 rpm.

The seller of this example (VIN: GK77A-105355, Engine #: K711-104406) acquired it 11 months ago from a private seller and is letting it go as he has lost interest in it. It was originally sold in Japan.

He has ridden it approximately 30 miles. The odometer shows 42,072 kilometers (26,142 miles).

The seller states that he had the tank professionally repainted and the frame cleaned with some minor paint touch ups.

It was recently serviced with an oil change, GUD oil filter, air filter, battery, carb clean, tank liner, new NGK spark plugs, and new Unilli tires.

Modifications:
The shocks are from a Yamaha XJR400.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
Minor scratch on left right fairing.

Front brake lever has a minor scratch on the ball.

Small tears in seat.

Tail light has a small hole.

Small scratches on the left side of the front fender.

Currently located in Pretoria, South Africa, this Suzuki is offered on a clean South Africa title. Have any Katana stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments below!

Please Note: Iconic has a container in South Africa that is waiting for load up due to the unrest. We expect that the container will be loaded in four weeks and that it will arrive in the US in about 2-3 months depending on the ocean carrier and customs. The approximate shipping cost would be $1,500 to get it to the port of Los Angeles.
