At the Suzuki stand at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show, both the new "Katana" model and one of the original "GSX1100S Katana" bikes released in 1981 were on display, impressing all the biker fans.

The prototype model was introduced at the Cologne Motor Show in 1980. At the Suzuki booth, the history of this iconic bike was explained to us.
By the way, I had a chance to sit on the latest "Katana" and get a sense of it at the stand, an experience that fans were queuing up for until the show closed.
