SUZUKI KATANA. GSX 750 SS. 1981-85.

Late in 1981, after the introduction of the exciting GSX1000S, Suzuki released an almost identical 750 cc version of the Katana (meaning Sword in English). The engine was taken from the GSX750E.

 

The 1981 GSX750SX and 1982 GSX750SD were identical exept for the colors. For domestic market in Japan, the model without the windscreen (see the picture above) was called GSX750S and the one with a screen was called SS. At first the Katana was only available for the home market in Japan, 1982 it came in Europe. The Japanese model had 69 hp/ 8.500 rpm, 6,2 kg-m/ 7.000 rpm.

 

The Japanese models had first 69 bhp, the 1983 model had 72 bhp and the later models

77 bhp.
