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 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’s reserve includes a service of an oil+filter change, new spark plugs, air filter, and a new front tire. Have any Katana stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments below!
